Those who know fallen SEAL Glen Doherty, who died in the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, know that one of his greatest passions was skiing. Glen and friends spent many days cutting through some powder at different ski resorts. One of Glen’s favorite resorts, Snowbird, had an unnamed run which Glen tackled as much as he could.
On February 22nd, Snowbird Resort owner, formally named and dedicated this unnamed run to Glen Doherty. The run will now be called Glen’s. It’s not Snowbird’s policy to name runs in this fashion, but in this instance, the ski resort made an exception. The initial approval came from Snowbird’s owner, Dick Bass, a Navy veteran. Snowbird’s president Bob Bonar and ski patrol were on board with the decision as well. Doherty lived here for about five years and maintained many friendships. He often returned to Utah for vacations and downtime.
So if you ever want to head out skiing or snowboarding, head to Utah’s Snowbird Resort and take a moment to pause at the top of Glen’s to remember this American hero. Then head down the slope and “bust em” for Glen.
