Doug Hallman (Northern) Bursary

Doug Hallman skiing

Doug was passionate about skiing and ski teaching. He was the Snow School Director at Tabor Mountain and during his time on the BC Committee, had this idea of bringing L4s up to the North. The idea was to get everyone together for one weekend of ski improvement and being able to share ideas amongst other instructors in the region. This concept led to the creation of the Northern Festival.

To honour Doug’s life-long love of teaching and his passion of skiing, the CSIA BC board created the Doug Hallman Bursary of $1,000 for young ski professionals in the Northern BC Region to help them in attaining their next level of certification.

“Like many people in this organization he was extremely passionate about skiing and ski teaching. His volunteerism to assist in the ski schools, teach and with the CSIA-BC board are an inspiration to many”.
