I got a call from a lady who lost her wedding ring while skiing at Stowe Mountain Ski area yesterday. She was extremely upset. Her ring’s triple bands represented her dog, her spouse and herself all as one. The employees at the ski area saw how upset she was and tried all evening to find it for her. I told her I could go look right away. She was actually calling from back home in Boston. I asked her if I found it, would she like me to mail it to her? She said “I will jump in my car and drive right back there!”
She gave me very good descriptions of the areas where she thought she may have lost it. The people at the ski area were extremely helpful and friendly, and gave me permission to search. So after about a half hour search, and hundreds of junk metal signals, I got a good signal under the chair lift. Digging down a few inches in the snow, there it was, sparkling bright and in perfect condition. I was sooooo happy for her! She thought she would never see it again. I immediately sent her a picture message. The people around Guest Services cheered.
After she got my message, she called me, hardly able to talk through the tears. She wanted to drive right up from Boston. I met her part way there, gave it to her and got my hugs!
