Aspen, CO ColoradoWilliam H. Adsit passed away Wednesday, March 7, 2007, after a long illness. His wife was by his side.

Bill was born in Youngstown, Ohio, to Charlton and Ruth (Lowther) Adsit. After graduation, he worked the steel mills and proudly served his country in the U.S. Army from 1952 to 1954.

Bill got skiing in his sights and, in 1956, he began teaching. From Mount Snow, Smugglers’ Notch and Stowe, he worked his way up through the ranks; eventually becoming head of ski school at Ski Round Top. By 1964, it was his turn to ski Colorado. By 1966, by way of Arapahoe and his Canadian certification – which he renewed regularly and in which he held pride – Bill found his way home to Aspen. He met and married Nancy Olsen in Aspen in 1970. He taught for Aspen Ski Corp. and owned Adsit Cabinetry in Aspen. He also managed many properties in the area.

Bill was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Donald. He is survived by his wife, Nancy, of Glenwood Springs; brothers Charlton (Martha) Adsit of Linesville, Pa., and James (Marilyn) Adsit of Youngstown; and many nieces and nephews, and grandnieces and grandnephews.A celebration of life will take place at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 11, at Bumps Restaurant at the base of Buttermilk in Aspen. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests and appreciates donations to Roaring Fork Hospice, P.O. Box 1970, Glenwood Springs, CO 81601.
