Rossland a great place for ski hall of fame

With the recent announcement that Rossland is one of five cities in the running for the National Ski Hall of Fame and Museum.

With the recent announcement that Rossland is one of five cities in the running for the National Ski Hall of Fame and Museum, excitement over the possibility of the prestigious building residing in this town is mounting.

The museum could be exactly what the city was hoping for when news that the mine addit tour would be closed for good.

There is also the argument that the current museum would have the knowledge to keep the skiing artifacts and precious memorabilia safe and in good condition, since there is already a wing of the museum devoted to that endeavour.

On the historical side, Rosslanders are well aware of their cities historical feats when it comes to the endeavour of having two sticks of wood strapped to ones feet while getting from a elevated point to a lower point.

Rossland is home of Western Canada’s first ski hill, as well as the first World Cup of skiing held in North America. There is also the long line of historical figures who had worldly ski success, from Nancy Greene-Raine to Kerrin Lee Gartner.

There are also the significant characters of Rossland’s history, like Olaus Jeldness, who is right now being having his likeness molded into a bronze statue that will celebrate him and Rossland’s history in the heart of downtown.

Though there is extensive work that the city, Teck and the museum will need to do before a sucessful but if the historical and social aspects come into play then there is no city that could use it more than Rossland.
