Sliding, Gliding and Soaring: A history of skiing in Revelstoke, British Columbia




We had a good skier here, Earl Pletch, by the name of Earl Pletch, yes, that's him. And his technique used to be where he just sort of dove almost down the hill. I saw him fall a number of times, that was his style, because he just went right out.... I skied with him too. He built his own little ski hill; they lived up on the CPR hill above the station. The place is not there any more. And he built a jump there where he jumped actually over the road that goes up the CPR hill and landed on that steep part there. And one time.... Oh he was quite a guy, yes!
