"Preserving and sharing the history of Mt Seymour skiing & North Shore cabin culture for all "  - Alex Douglas (Lead Historian ) 

Mt Seymour History News Summer 2020

July 2020 update: Obviously things are changing daily, and most important I hope you and family are keeping well. I've officially retired, and now have the job of Official Mt Seymour Historian. Our travel plans are on hold so I'm taking the time to really work on the MSHP. I'm very available by e-mail or phone to listen to your stories or try to help with your question. I now have a Pop-Up Museum set up in the back of the AAC building, and encourage you to call me and book a visit. I have digitises the cassette recording of the pioneers and have them available to listen to by Goggle Docs.

All the best, stay safe and stay in touch.

There will be no official Uncle Al's Cabins Tours, but when I'm around I'd be more than happy to lead hike for groups of 6 or less that want to explore the history of Mt. Seymour. Find your families cabin site or explore the old trails, call or e-mail me to book a date.
