The Revelstoke Museum & Archives will be producing a new book about the history of skiing in Revelstoke.

The Revelstoke Museum & Archives will be producing a new book about the history of skiing in Revelstoke.

The book follows in the footsteps of the success of the photographic history book Reflection: Four Decades of Photographs by Earle & Estelle Dickey.

The new book will trace the history of skiing in Revelstoke from its earliest days in the late-1800s to the present day.

The 144-page coffee table book will feature the characters, the records and the exhilaration of more than 100 years of skiing in Revelstoke. It will look at Nordic and alpine skiing, ski jumping, ski joring; local, national and international competitions; the rise of heli-skiing and or skiing on Mt. Mackenzie.

The museum is seeking skiing photos, stories and artifacts from the Revelstoke community. Contributions may be used in the book or added to the museum’s archives for use in related exhibits and projects.

The anticipated completion date is December, 2012.

The book is a fundraiser for the Revelstoke Museum & Archives and donations to support its publication are welcome. To become an official sponsor, contact Jan Morehouse at 250-837-6690.
