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




And then besides that I was working with the kids through the week, well usually Tuesday and Thursday nights with the kids coaching jumping. They [the jump] had to be packed and maintained too - that's one reason we didn't have more kids jumping was because we spent more time working on hills and never did jumping. You know they'd come up on a Saturday morning and pack and pack and pack, have a few jumps and by then you're played out. And it was all walking. And I asked permission to put in a tow on the hill, a rope tow.... And I have the letter at home from the Parks. But they would have approved it but it would have to be a licensed tow and insured for $500,000, and that just wasn't economically feasible. That was, kind of, the end of ski jumping in Revelstoke.
