Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum

From the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum

February 3, 2016

Dear Honored Members, Members and Skier Friends, I am honored to be writing as the new Chair of the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum (CSHFM). On behalf of the Board of Directors I want to welcome you to a new and exciting year in the future of the CSHFM. It is fitting to begin with a special thank you on all our behalf to Chris Edgell who has devoted so much time over many years, stewarding our institution and legacy through some very challenging times. Without his devotion and dedication we would not be where we are today. Thank you Chris!

It has been some time since so many of you actively support the proposal process where the Board of Directors selected Mont-Tremblant to be the new home location for our institution. This journey to opening new doors is admittedly taking more time than originally envisioned. I have learned now, more than ever before, that all great things do take time and this effort is no exception. I can tell you that we continue to work forward and should have more details to share in the near future. As we move to finalize many of the details regarding our project we continue to have tremendous support from all our partners in the region and across Canada.

Your emails and letters of support are a big part of the reason we will showcase our national skiing heritage here in Mont-Tremblant. Our project needs your continued interest and I hope membership to continue honoring our past, share our present and look to the future.

As a first step I invite you to renew your membership or become a first time member. Be part of an exciting new national, pan Canadian project. Share in our passion, for not just a sport but a way of life. By renewing or establishing your membership, you will provide financial support to the CSHFM at a critical time in our project and help preserve the heritage of the sport we all love. Not to mention the opportunity to receive your copy of Skiing History magazine, an interesting and fun bi monthly publication. It is the world’s most widely circulated magazine about our sport’s past.

Your membership is important to us. Click this link to visit our website membership page.

Legends Classic – This year we are lucky to have be able to combine the Canadian Alpine Ski Team Alumni reunion with our Legends Classic ski race. Picture yourself departing from the same start gate as Nancy Greene, “Jungle” Jim Hunter, Laurie or Kathy Kreiner, Emily Brydon, Peter Duncan and many other of our champions. Click here to register and join us February 27th in a fun and memorable day.

Please feel free to write to me with your ideas or suggestions. I will do my best to reply.

Thank you in advance for your support and my regards,

Stephen Finestone
Chair, CSHFM
