"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

March 8th. 2023:

The MSHP web site will be shutting down early April 2024, It's just too expensive to continue. The hope is that the content will move to a history section within . 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 or move it to MONOVA or Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum. 

All the best, stay safe, and when in doubt donate your photos, articles and memorabilia to the Museum of North Vancouver - MONOVA. Check out links for New Historypin web site and fantastic link to history of Mt. Seymour. (
