Fred Hall was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in 1903 and started skiing in 1920 in an area near the Old Beltline right-of-way in the Don Valley. In 1922, he moved his ski activities to High Park and in 1924 became a charter member of the Toronto Ski Club. In 1926 he was appointed Chairman of Trails at the new Summit property of the Club. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, he drew and made up a coloured trail map of the area that was used by Summit skiers for years. Later he designed many of the covers for the "Ski Runner" the local publication of the Club. He edited the "Ski Runner" from 1929 to 1936 making it one of the most popular ski publications in Canada. His writing ability and sense of humour was much appreciated by skiers of that era...
