Time Traveller: The 'Girls Cabin' housed Grouse Mountain Ski Club members

The North Vancouver-based ski club, which still exists today, was formed in 1927 by Lindsay Loutet and other powder seekers

Here is a photo taken ca. 1929 of The Girls Cabin of the Grouse Mountain Ski Club. The club was founded by Lindsay Loutet, along with other ardent skiers, in the fall of 1927.

On Saturday mornings club members would meet at the end of the Streetcar line in Upper Lonsdale. From there they would do a day’s hike up the mountain to the cabins where they would spend the night before skiing the slopes the next day, returning home by the evening.

The club still exists today as the Grouse Mountain Tyee Ski Club.
