Mark and Andy Godfrey were just 11 and eight years old, respectively, when the plane ferrying them from their home in Houston to an Aspen ski vacation in March 1974 plummeted to the ground. Their parents and older siblings as well as the pilot died at the site, and Mark and Andy spent three days in the mountains before they were rescued. For the next four decades, neither man discussed the tragedy or the impact it had on their lives, keeping a few indelible memories—snow-covered trees rushing up to meet them, the sound of their mother’s last gasping breaths—to themselves.
