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




We had a problem with, you know, there was nowhere here we could ski; everywhere you went you had to work on the hill more than you could ski. And some years we went over there [Europe] and we had to start on a, like on a 90 meter hill, we hadn't even had our skis on yet. And some of those skiers had had maybe, 1000 rides by then. They had plastic hills as big as our 90 meter here. So they skied all year around, a lot of them, in the later years anyway. But sometimes we didn't even have a coach, we always had a manager of some sort, but we were a little short on the coaching end.
