Longtime Tahoe avi pro Norm Wilson passed away last month, 14 months after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS). In addition to teaching avi courses, and avi consulting for ski resorts and Caltrans, Norm also put up the Eagle Route (with David Beck) a nice 5.5 up Eagle Lake Buttress way back in 1963.

I took an AIARE Level II course with Norm about 7 years ago, and he was a super nice knowledge guy.

I liked this quote from his obit, "I had more fun at my work than most people have on their vacations."
