Rossland Ski Hall of Fame bid unsucessful

Rossland won't be getting Canada's Ski Hall of Fame and Museum.

Rossland won’t be getting Canada’s Ski Hall of Fame and Museum.

The disappointing news for the city comes out as the board of directors for the Canada Ski Hall of Fame and Museum voted on the St. Jovite Mont Tremblant Region, Que., for the location.

“Tremblant’s bid reached the podium because of overwhelming community support,” Chris Edgell, board director, said. “There was also consensus that the St. Jovite Mont Tremblant Region represents one of Canada’s cradles of ski culture and racing folklore.”

Rossland put in a bid for the hall, and it was the community’s hopes that it could be a potential replacement for the Rossland Museum’s mine tour, that had to be closed for good.

The decision will see more than 15,000 artifacts from Canada’s ski history once again on display.

The membership will vote on the Board’s recommendation in the coming weeks.
