Tournament of Champions monument officially opened
By David F. Rooney
Rob Buchanan’s elegant Tournament of Champions monument to ski jumping was opened Tuesday with a snip of the scissors wielded by former Canadian ski team member John McInnes.
Mayor David Raven recalled the glory days of ski jumping in Revelstoke, which hosted well-remembered international competitions before the ski jump on Mount Revelstoke was closed in 1975. And National Parks Superintendent Karen Tierney looked to the future when Mount Revelstoke National Park will celebrate its centennial in 2014.
The monument is located at the base of the trail leading up to the park from Track Street. Here are some images from the morning event:
