We know Chuck was skiing at Moraine Lake road with beautiful new tracksetting. See Chuck’s photos.
I’d be interested in hearing from anyone who contacted the media people(from my previous post) and what came of it. I can’t access Canadian TV or radio except online, so send a link to any stories which were the result of all this.

Helen Yuen sent this link to David Bell’s CBC online story: Park funding slammed

Oops, I meant to reply to you! See my comment above 🙂
