Revelstoke Ski Club

Revelstoke Ski Club

The Revelstoke Ski Club is said to be the oldest continually operating ski club in Canada, with records dating from 1891. Local entrepreneur, F. B. Wells, was the first to sell skis in the area and also was one of the original founders of the club. The oldest record of this club is a photograph dated 1891 with "Revelstoke Ski Club" written on the back. The club was made "official" on December 12, 1914. It was reorganized by Sigurd Halverson and Nels Nelson the same year Mount Revelstoke National Park was established. To continue reading, "click" here
