An outstanding alpine skier, Scott Henderson was a member of Canada's National Team in the 1960s competing in two Winter Olympic Games, Innsbruck, Austria in 1964 and Grenoble, France, in 1968.

Following his retirement from competition, he was named Head Coach of the Canadian Men's Alpine Team, a position he held for 5-years from 1972 to 1977, and was instrumental in the development of the Downhill-only program for the Canadian Amateur Ski Association (CASA). This program produced the original "Crazy Canucks", the most successful downhill team in Canadian alpine history that included such well-known names as "Jungle" Jim Hunter, Dave Irwin, Dave Murray, Steve Podborski and Ken Read.

After retiring as Head Coach, he entered the ski industry in Colorado, USA, marketing and distributing a wide variety of alpine products. ['CLICK' BELOW TO READ FULL BIOGRAPHY]
