Chic Scott at the Rossland Museum
Well-known western Canadian mountaineer Chic Scott is scheduled to present a talk and show at the Rossland Museum and Discovery Centre – a “voyage of ski discovery” – on Wednesday, January 9, at 6:30 pm.
Scott has a long history of climbing and ski mountaineering exploits, and he delights in sharing tales of them. On his website, readers learn (inter alia) that:
“Chic has received honorary memberships in the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (1995), the Calgary Mountain Club (1997), The Alpine Club of Canada (2000) and the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies (2014). In the year 2000 Chic received the Bill March Summit of Excellence Award at the Banff Mountain Film Festival. His magnum opus "Pushing the Limits, the story of Canadian Mountaineering" has won four awards including Alberta Trade Book of the Year, and the Wilfred Eggleston Award for Non Fiction.
“Chic now resides in Banff, Alberta where he earns his living writing books and magazine articles and giving presentations on mountain topics. When not at his computer Chic can be found hiking, skiing, or climbing in the nearby Rocky Mountains, or perhaps sitting around the fire at one of the ACC huts telling stories.”
Entry to Scott’s event at the Rossland Museum for our vicarious enjoyment of some of his adventures is by donation; there will be refreshments available.
