The Mt. Ashland Ski Area will honor local skiing legend Gene Landsmann at the third-annual Gene Landsmann Day Saturday, April 2.

Landsmann was an Austrian native who came to Ashland in 1974, taught at Mt. Ashland's ski school and developed the mountain's ski-patrol system.

A fixture on the mountain for decades, Landsmann died of cancer in February 2008. To honor him, the mountain will donate $2 from every lift ticket sold to the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life in Ashland, scheduled for Ashland Middle School on May 21-22. The 24-hour event raises money and awareness for cancer research and treatment.
