A snow slide triggered during roof shoveling of a commercial building in Crested Butte South this past Saturday resulted in tragedy, claiming the life of a Gunnison man. Stephan Michael Martel was 25.

Family members described Martel as outgoing, friendly and a lover of adventure and the outdoors. Martel’s death has left fellow employees of Tully’s restaurant, where he worked as a waiter, reeling.

The business has remained closed since the incident but plans to re-open tomorrow, March 15. Business owner Blair Tulliver “Tully” Burton, 37, of Crested Butte, was buried in the same slide but was rescued.
