Canadian Rockies Ski Racing Hall of Fame: Call For Nominations
Recognizing the Class of 2022
For the past ten years, the Canadian Rockies Ski Racing Hall of Fame has recognized individuals who have made enormous contributions to building our sport – those dedicated leaders who have led our programs, run events or represented our community in competition.
Nominations for the Class of 2022 are now open. This is your chance to bring forward an individual you feel is deserving of recognition by the Ski Racing Family.
The Hall of Fame selection panel welcomes nominees in up to five categories:
- Alberta Ski Team and/or Canadian Ski Team alumnus
- President’s Award, for special merit
Ski racing in the Canadian Rockies has grown through the vision and determination of our many passionate leaders. These efforts have lifted in our athletes to proudly represent Canada, including Olympic, World Championship and World Cup medals. Hard working volunteers, officials and staff have become indispensable supporters of our own annual World Cup as well as leaders within organizing committees at World Championships and Olympic Winter Games. Technical leaders have been part of the digital revolution. Coaches and Team alumnus have firmly established a culture of success and a pipeline that consistently gives thousands of young athletes the fundamentals of a life-long sport, a deep appreciation for the outdoors and mountain environment, the thrill of ski racing and a passion to aim to represent our country.
“The Canadian Rockies Ski Racing Hall of Fame is a truly meaningful way to honour those who have worked so hard for our athletes,” said Alberta Alpine President, Pat Gillespie. “Every winter, thousands of young athletes get the chance to enjoy ski racing and to aim for the podium, thanks to the determined effort of our supporters. Through their hard work our athletes have developed into champions, life-long ski enthusiasts and good citizens. The leadership of our Honoured Inductees and so many more is a living example to all of us who aim to build a strong sport programs across the province and Canada.”
Nominations will be accepted until July 31, 2022.
