Derrick

PRESIDENT

Though a late comer to skiing, I have always been an outdoor enthusiast and adventurer. At a young age “The Lure of the Labrador” and the rugged beauty of Western Newfoundland satiated my need for outdoor adventure.

 

I always wanted to ski and watched the Crazy Canucks hurtle down mountains, but hockey was supreme then.  I move west to Winnipeg in 1987, saw the rugged, raw beauty of the Rocky Mountains for the first time in 88 and was hooked. Exploring the Rockies and taking pictures became paramount in my protean world. In 2003 I caught the ski bug when my daughter, then 11, joined a downhill race club. I strapped on skis for the first time that December at Saint Sauveur, Quebec and it was a match made in snow.

 

I have skied incessantly at resorts east, west, and south ever since. In 2017 I was introduced to the SCSC through a get down, let loose, amazing 70’s style ski bus trip to Whitefish, Montana, complete with great people, revelry, dancing and oh yes, snowballs. I became a Calgarian in March, 2018, and finally realized my dream, to live on the doorstep of this marvelous mountain playground.

OVERNIGHT TRIP CO-ORDINATOR

 

Hey All

I'm back again as your Overnight Trip Coordinator. Skiing has been my passion for many years. I started back in Ontario as a child at Alpine Ski Club and then onto Quebec for my teens, largely at Mont St. Sauveur and Mont Tremblant. I skied Ellicottville, NY for a couple of years and then moved onto Vancouver at Cypress Bowl and Grouse Mountain, finally landing in the land of plenty of choices- Alberta.  

For this season, we have arranged a variety of overnight trips - some structured, some unstructured. See the events page for more information.

For the past few years, I have either been part of or organized overnight trips for the club. Last year I personally participated in all 5 trips as well as other events. I have taken great enjoyment in getting to know new hills and many new great people who have the passion to ski/board.

 

Cheers to great snow and great people for the months to come!

Diane

CO-VP SOCIAL | SOCIAL CO-ORDINATOR

Hi I’m a B.C girl from Kelowna, and started skiing at Big White when I was 10.  Came to Alberta in ‘87 and never looked back. I love the mountains and all of its beauty. Skiing has always been a passion of mine, although time kept me from enjoying it more often.

 

I joined the SCSC in 2012, and have enjoyed many ski trips to fantastic locations particularly hosting the Whitefish, Montana trip in February.

 

I have formed amazing friendships and continued to promote the growth of the club.  As the Social Director of the Ski & Snowboard Club, I am known as the “energizer bunny” and I love to plan events and meet new members. 

 

Looking forward to meeting you soon at the monthly social or on the slopes!

Dagny

CO-VP SOCIAL | SOCIAL CO-ORDINATOR

Dagny has been with the club since 2015 and has carved a lot of good lines, and created fantastic memories and friends. She’s an average black diamond skier with a rowdy slant and an addiction for speed. She has become an Après expert and well-practiced ski boot dancer. Her favorite hill is Revelstoke.

Dagny has lots of fun organizing social activities with Diane, and hosting day and weekend trips. If she’s not in her wood-working shop, or art studio, she can be found cuddled up with her two cats, Chuck and Tiffany. Dagny will be spending most of her time skiing Lake Louise this year. 

She is excited to meet you all for skiing/boarding, Après, and ski boot dancing!

Hello fellow snow lovers!

I’m a native Calgarian and love these amazing mountains, year-round. One of my many passions is my love of snowboarding. I skied the first half of my life and have been snowboarding for the last 15 years. I joined the club in the 2019/2020 season, where I met an amazing group of people to share in my love of the mountain winter wonderland. I attended many of the planned trips and events and have cultivated some amazing friendships.

I am honored to be able to participate in the club executive team, incorporating my latest passion for coding! Providing a platform to inform current members and entice more like-minded individuals to join the fun! I can’t wait to see you all on the hill.

Pauline

PAST PRESIDENT & DIRECTOR

 

I joined the Club about 20 years ago when it was known as the Petroleum Ski Club and within the first year I was asked to join the Executive and the rest is history. 

 

My current position is Past President & Director, (for the last 6 years) enables me to focus on those pesky details that need to be taken care of, such as the Annual Return, AGM materials and whatever else comes my way. 

 

I haven't spent any time on the slopes the past number of years, with warmer climates calling me there, but never say never. 

 

In the interim I will lift my wine glass by the pool and think about you all having the time of your life as well..

Lynda

SECRETARY

Lynda is also a new recruit to the ski club executive. She has graciously volunteered to take the minutes at the executive meetings, which is not a trivial task with with the size of the group.  She's been doing a great job. 

 

From Lynda:

I joined the Stampede City Ski and Snowboard Club in 2016. I have gone on a few great trips and met a lot of wonderful people. I am happy to be part of the executive team for this great club.

 

I started skiing when I was 12 years old and spent every weekend at Paskapoo.

Kim

CO-VP MEMBERSHIP

Winter is my favorite season. My ski passion started with skiing good ol’ Blackstrap (the garbage hill) in Saskatchewan.  Our family would do a big trip every winter and we loved our ski weeks away.  

 

Eventually I moved to Alberta, my ski career got more official and with more mountain access- I got lured into freestyle skiing!   

Moguls, aerials and ballet expanded my love of skiing. Competing locally, nationally and even making the Alberta team. 

Once my ski career ended, I needed a change of pace so I picked up snowboarding and haven’t looked back (much).  

 

I found the ski club in the 2016-17 season, as I was looking to UP my ski days and expand my ski crew!  I look forward to the upcoming season – hoping to get more people out!

 

Feel free to come and laugh at me as I am going to do some experimenting back on skis (but not on powder days!!!).
