A Brief History of Cedar Springs Ski Club
The two photos below were copied from a book “The Prints of Burlington” by Gary Evans, North Shore Publishing. This got us started on our history lesson.
The text from the book reads,
“There’s little trace of the fact these days, but for some years Burlington had one of the busiest ski clubs in Southern Ontario. Started in 1935, the Cedar Springs Ski Club had the second largest membership in the 24-member Southern Ontario Ski Zone with more than 2,000 members. Located in the Cedar Springs community, the club had challenging ski hills as well as an 85-foot ski jump on the site. In the early 1970s, the land was sold to developers the ski lifts were purchased by the Glen Eden Ski Club. The photograph above shows a panoramic view of the ski hills, while [below], instructors Jack Beldham, Dan Lawrie, Robert Low, Aileen Jamieson and Whitney Lapp were photographed for a 1954 news story.”
