Thanks to all who came and enjoyed and also helped out with the raffle.
My opinon is that Lowell's presentation is PBS  quality.
Not only do we ski on hallowed ground but we have big tracks to fill.

It was a very good show, Robie you did a very nice job of organizing the event.  Those were/are some really "tough" skiing folks.

Lowell has done a nice job of preserving the history of BC skiing.
