Ellis Hazen's association with skiing began in 1939 when, as a physical education teacher in Sudbury, Ontario, he timed a cross-country ski race. Following the race, his students persuaded him to include skiing as part of the school's Physical Education program. From that time forward, he worked tirelessly to promoting the sport of skiing among young people particularly in the schools.
