"Preserving and sharing the history of Mt Seymour skiing & North Shore cabin culture for all " - Alex Douglas (Lead Historian )
Mt Seymour History News 2022 to 2023
The MSHP web site will stay active and every so often I will review e-mails but for the most part I'm going to have a rest and travel. The collection will stay on Mt. Seymour and hopefully other staff will show an interest in the collection. I'll continue to work with the NVMA now MONOVA.
Hopefully some time in the long distant future there will be a real effort to review the collection and write the definitive history of Mt. Seymour.
Just a little bit of news, After about 45 years, Barry Cleator has closed down the physical Vancouver Ski Services at 271 East 2nd. It was a bit of a ski museum in its own right.
For the summer of 2022 I do plan to be in North Vancouver, and would love to plan for Seymour cabin walks or coffee meetings on the topic of MSHP. Keep in touch if your interested.
All the best, stay safe, and when in doubt donate your photos, articles and memorabilia to the Museum of North Vancouver. Check out links for New Historypin web site and fantastic link to history of Mt. Seymour. (www.monova.ca).
