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




Carl Gunnarsen was looking after the big jump, getting it prepared for the tournament of champions. Carl Gunnarsen, he was the head, Roddy McCrae and a few, mostly CPR people it seemed at that time. And the Parks would help some. I can remember when Petter Hugsted, he was the '48 Olympic champion, he came over and walked out onto the hill and stuck his foot in the snow and said, "it's too soft." So I got the whole crowd out there to foot pack the hill. Yeah, everybody came out... not everybody, but a lot, because there's nothing more dangerous than a soft hill.
