February 26, 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of Anne Heggtveit's historic Olympic slalom gold medal victory - a first for a Canadian Skier, and by a record margin. At the same time, Anne also became FIS World Champion in Slalom and Alpine Combined - the first non-European to win the Alpine Combined!
The images below show a selection of the objects in the collection of the Canadian Ski Museum documenting Anne Heggtveit's successes at the 1960 Squaw Valley Olympics and beyond. Clicking on an image will take you to a more detailed description of the artefact.
Congratulations, Anne! You are truly an inspiration to us all.
