VAIL, Colo. (CBS4) – Staff at Vail ski area are hoping someone will claim a can of ashes that was found under a chairlift.

A member of Vail’s security team found the can on Feb. 8 under Chair 26.

“So, an off-duty security officer found a little canister of ashes,” said Vail Resorts spokeswoman Maggie Meisinger. “We just really want to reconnect this canister of ashes with the loved ones.”
