Title
The Trail Breakers: The Red Birds Ski Club
Abstract
The Red Birds Ski Club was formed in 1928 with the idea of keeping together a group of McGill Ski Team friends who loved to ski and compete. Bill Thompson, Harry Pangman, Stirling Maxwell and their mentors at McGill University, Colonel Bovey and Major Forbes, were the original founders of the club. It is North America's oldest downhill ski club, existing to this day with over 500 members. Among its accomplishments, the club has placed skiers on five Olympic and many other international teams and started the development of Mont Tremblant as a skiing destination.
