BRAD LANPHER
1969 - 2005

Go Big or Go Home! That was Brad's philosophy in skiing and other areas in life that he was so passionate about. As was quoted in the Westword newspaper interview with Brad in November 1999 regarding Sunlight Mountain Resort "Frying Pan is the one I really like-you come off this high speed groomer and pop some air, tuck into the trees, and there are all these little alleys and a couple of launches at the end", he says. "you can go flying through there!"

Brad was a graduate of Cherry Creek High School and Colorado State University. Brad had a smile that lit up the room and a great sense of humor. He was known for his Brad-isms and his spontaneity - always the life of the party! He had a passion for so many things - North Carolina basketball (Go Tarheels!), Michael Jordan, Viking football, soccer, golf, tennis shoes of all kinds. He was known at Sunlight for creating the "Bradley Schlopper" which is a hamburger with green chili and oyster crackers.

His life was cut short by Melanoma, a skin cancer that began with a mole on his chest that metastasized. He fought this terrible disease for 6 months and even skied at Sunlight 2 months before he died at the age of 35. He will always be remembered for the love and kindness he showed his family, friends, and strangers that he met. Remember, have fun in the sun but wear your sunscreen and pass the word that early detection is the key to successful treatment of skin cancer!
