Summit Daily’s top stories of the day

Rick "Pup" Ascher sits on a bench made of skis in front of his 1885 log cabin, found two blocks from his Main Street tune shop. There's even a plaque proclaiming the cabin (originally located behind Blue Moose on north Main) an historic landmark. The bench he's sitting on is made with Rossignol Bandit and Cut skis, the same ones that Pup and his Powder 8 partner, Paul "Frosty" Krause, wore in several World Championships. The duo won five times from 1981 to 2006.
