Editor's Notebook: Industry loses a member

Snow veteran George Sosnowski passes in late July after a long-term battle with cancer.


I was very saddened to learn the other day that snowfighter and ASCA member George Sosnowski had died last week (July 24). I had learned some time ago that he was battling cancer, however it never seemed to impact his positive attitude and joyful and fun-loving nature when we would see each other at various industry events.

George was a fixture at ASCA's Executive Summits and Snow Shows over the years. He was an industry cheerleader and an advocate for professional snow and ice management. Like he always said, he was born for this industry because he had "snow" in the middle of his last name.

George, you will be missed.
