Ruff life for this shop dog. 😂 🐾

Come shopping for your winter wardrobe, and #donnie will make it his mission to show off his tricks and (more importantly) his treat bowl.

Hanson Hills

We are sad to announce that a team member has passed away over the weekend. William “BILL” Bonkowski passed away from a brief battle with cancer. Bill envisioned and developed the Hanson Hills Snowsports School and served as the Director for the past 11 years. Bill shared his passion for Skiing, Rock n Roll, and hunting to all that came in contact with him. Bill was a great mentor and helped many young skiers and adults to fall in love with the sport of skiing. We kindly ask for you to keep Bill’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
Rest in Peace my friend and enjoy your Endless Winter!

RIP Bill. I’m so thankful the the time I was able to spend as coworkers inside the rental shop. I’ll cherish those moments forever 🤘❤️

This news is heartbreaking. Thank you for everything Bill Bonkowski.

I’ve known Bill for decades. I followed his physical battles and thought he was on the upswing. I’m so sorry to hear this. What a stand up guy. Only the good die young and that is certainly the case here. I know there is only powder in heaven so enjoy Bill.

So sad. Was such a nice man. Condolences to his family

Sorry to hear this. Bill worked diligently with my son thru the school. Adam respected him. R.I.P.

I'm in shock. He had been through so much with his health and the deaths of his parents. RIP Bill 💔

So sad to hear this. He gave me my first job at 15 years old and helped improve my skiing immensely. 😢

I'm lso sorry to hear this. He was a force for good at Hanson Hills. A lot of people are going to miss him greatly.

what a loss this is for our community

Oh how heartbreaking! Prayers to his family and friends!

RIP Thank you for all you have done for my family.

Sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.

So heartbreaking, prayers to the family.

This is so sad!!! Thoughts and prayers go out to his family

So sad to hear this😔

Prayers 🙏

Sincere Sympathy to all who loved and knew Bill. After the darkness comes the promise of a new day, Beyond life’s cares is the sureness of peace.

Very sad
