On February 7, 2011, the morning after Brandon’s funeral, his friends and family met for a ski down tribute.
This video was filmed on February 7, 2011, the morning after Brandon’s funeral at Beaver Creek, Colorado where Brandon worked on the Mountain. Beaver Creek opened the lift early that morning so that his family, friends and co-workers could have a tribute run in honor of Brandon before they opened the mountain for the public. There was a 7 cannon salute done by the Beaver Creek Ski Patrol Avalanche team before we skied/rode down the Mountain. Speaking at the end of the video is Ralph Merritt, Brandon’s Dad. The song, Sweet Caroline, was Brandon’s favorite.
