Canadian Ski Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony

Postponed
The Canadian Ski Hall of Fame is postponing its induction event and ceremony scheduled for April 4, 2020 at Blue Mountain due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns.
Caution, social responsibility and respect for guidance from medical professionals and our governments at all levels is the driving force behind this decision to postpone.  In line with other organizations the Board of Directors supports this decision to avoid the possibility of unnecessarily putting at risk our community of:  Honorees, their families, guests, event sponsors and members of our sliding community from all regions of Canada. 
The Hall of Fame Committee will work forward in close collaboration with our Board of Directors and Blue Mountain Resort to ensure we find a suitable future date for the event. To this goal we will reconvene later in April to assess the status of this ever-evolving situation in our country.  Post this meeting we will communicate further details with Honorees and others who have reserved to celebrate with us. 
Your understanding and patience with our team as we work to provide you with updates and details is greatly appreciated.  Please standby for future communications regarding rebooking, rescheduling, re-ticketing and other inquiries. Further inquires, if urgent, can be written to admin@skimuseum.ca.

Project update

Chairman's update November 1 2019
The Board and its sub committees have been very busy over the past many months and as Chair I am long overdue to share news about our efforts.  Our mandate remains:  to promote an understanding, appreciation and celebration of Canada's skiing/snowboarding traditions and accomplishments, and their significance to Canadian life and identity.
For some time now we have focused our efforts on a strategy to put in place three “homes”.
Virtual Home: Enhancing our web and social media presence as a key pillar to our National footprint
Physical Home: Establishing a physical home and National Office
Itinerant Home:  Creating a mobile presence to build more Community Outreach and Education.
Our current priorities focus on the Virtual and Physical home projects.  What underpins all our thinking is to:
• Consider modern approaches to presenting our history, where “presentation” is part of the attraction, making it appealing for all ages;
• Emphasize the Hall of Fame and the personalities that make our sports great;
• Contribute to the growth of our sports by creating better visibility to these personalities and our honored members; and
• Share via interactive technology the passion and joy of sliding on snow.
Our Physical Home:
We have been pursuing this for many years now.  Admittedly longer than is anyone’s preference.  That said, I believe we are closer than ever to securing the funds required to move to the next phase.  We already have some generous private sector supporters.  We are waiting to receive news of funding support from partners in the public sector at the Federal, Provincial and Municipal levels.
The Experience we are planning to deliver within the new site location in Mont Tremblant, Quebec will include:  an Exhibition Space highlighting an appreciation for and the importance of skiing and snowboarding. Simulation Experiences to provide an opportunity to know the joy of and passion for sliding on snow through the use of virtual reality experiences. Education and promotion of high-level sport and promoting awareness of internationally recognized Canadian elite athletes. Cinema to share, highlight and immerse guests in our culture and way of life. A gathering place to share and host celebrations and special events.
Our Virtual Home
Thanks to the generosity of Power Corporation of Canada, we have initiated a project to modernize our internet presence.  This work will maintain and enhance the already good access to content in our collection.  Enable easier communications with our members and encourage others to join, we hope.  Further through the introduction of new not for profit software, improve our ability to manage our external online relationships. We have initiated this work and are looking forward to introducing our site by the Fall of 2020.
All of our work is done on a volunteer basis.  As Chair I am grateful to all who have and continue to contribute their time and energy.  Thank you.  If you might be interested in getting involved, please reach out we would love to have you.  Keep any eye out for more updates and news, I will be trying to establish a more regular, perhaps quarterly, update.
Hall of Fame
We have restarted after an 8 year gap our Hall of Fame induction process and gala.  The Induction Ceremony event celebrates the people who have influenced the development of skiing and snowboarding in Canada, whether by competitive prowess, organizational ability, creativity, pioneer development or leadership.
The induction ceremony and gala event recognizes and celebrates the achievements of Canada's greatest skiers, snowboarders, coaches, officials, and builders of the sport or industry. At our Gala in Banff, Alberta last November John Fry, Thomas Grandi, Russell Goodman, Robert Swan, Martin Hall, John Kucera became Honoured Members. 
This year our event will be held on Saturday April 4, 2020 in Collingwood Ontario where we will honour Chandra Crawford (Cross country), Ashleigh McIvor (Ski cross), Jennifer Heil (Freestyle), Lauren Woolstencroft (Para-alpine), Malcolm Hunter (Builder and Coach), Mike Irwin (Builder), Réal Boulanger (Builder), William B. Schrieber, (Builder), Lorne McFagden, (Alpine Ski Instructor).  Please plan to join us and celebrate these great Canadians.
Enjoy winter and remember, “a bad day on the slopes is better than a good day in the office”.
