SSSC receives incredible donation from the Hudson Bay Mountain Writers from 'A Mountain of Change' book proceeds
After two years of researching and writing followed by another year of selling, ‘A Mountain of Change’,
the colourful, pictorial book documenting the history of skiing on the Prairie of Hudson Bay Mountain,
the writers were elated to present a cheque to Cormac Hikisch, President of Smithers Ski & Snowboard
Club. “This money will be used to help fund coaches and the coaching program for the club,” stated
Hikisch. He also added that the club is very appreciative as well of the community grants and business
sponsors to fund timing and racing equipment.
Referring to the ski history book, Hikisch commented how this is a valuable legacy. The writers
acknowledged that, A Mountain of Change, demonstrates how early cabin owners, volunteers and the
local ski club combined their passion with their vision to promote the healthy ski community that
continues to thrive today. Copies of this book are available at the downtown ski office
and at the local book stores.
