Sculpture “The End of an Era – Circa 1960" by George W. Lundeen, artist from Loveland. The sculpture is a gift from Lieutenant Colonel Chandler W. and Melitta E. Bergen. The monument recognizes a century of skiing in Colorado and honors those who pioneered the sport. As one of the signs explains, the sculpture “depicts a sport poised on the edge of change. Soon metal and synthetic would become standard in ski construction in place of wood that had been in use for more than 4,000 years.”
Wow, I even didn’t think of it!
The skier wears the old-times skiing out-fit to show a contrast with present skiers.
