A BIT OF HISTORY

 
In March of 1929 the Banff Rotary Club climbed to Mt. Norquay for lunch, aided by horse drawn sleighs and the dog teams of Ike Mills. "A snow slide occurred at the Norquay Camp a short time after the Rotarians and guests had left. A spectacular sight as the snow came off the top and funnelled down the slide area to the north of the cabin. Some wild rumours have been circulated about the slide covering the cabin. These are groundless. The slides are annual events and have been expected by ski officials for several days." (Crag & Canyon)
