This page has been set up by Mission Ridge for the Oltman Family.
In honor of David Oltman and his love for the sport of skiing, his family asks that any donations be made to the Burchett Foundation and their efforts in advancing avalanche education in our region. David had a passion for promoting safe skiing and enjoying fresh turns. Send it!
A Message From Mission Ridge
David spent five years here at Mission Ridge on the Professional Ski Patrol and also many years working at Arlberg Sports in Wenatchee. On the mountain he welcomed all tasks. Whether he was breaking trail while performing avalanche work, assisting in routine hill maintenance, or tending to injured guests, all duties were completed with accuracy, on time, and of course with a smile. David’s energy, joyful presence, and warm spirit impacted us all. We watched as David grew into fatherhood as a deeply loving family man, sharing his joy of skiing with his children. He enjoyed working with them on the rope tow and progressing them to the chair lift. We can’t express our sense of loss and our sorrow for his family. Our prayers go out to the entire Oltman family and all of those in our recreation community that are suffering right now. Our first run this ski season will be dedicated to David and his family.
