Why Dyer Mountain for a name? Dyer Mountain is a 13,862 foot (4255 meter) peak in the Mosquito Range, immediately east of my hometown of Leadville, Colorado. The mountain is named for Father John Dyer, a methodist preacher who in the 1860s and 70s, crossed the Mosquito Range frequently for his work-and coincidentally became the first avid cross-country skier in the Colorado Rockies. My father owned several mining claims on the western flank of Dyer Mountain-Every company has to have a name, and mine is named in honor of both my father and Father Dyer.
