Skiing Legends and the Laurentian Lodge Club

Neil McKenty

This book invites you to curl up beside the fire and journey to a time when Montrealers skied down Peel Street and the Laurentians were the wild west of Quebec.

For two expatriate Torontonians, Neil and Catharine McKenty, this journey begins at the Laurentian Lodge Club in Shawbridge, now Prévost. There we meet skiing legends like Jackrabbit Johannsen, Harry Pangman and Barbara Kemp. With them we discover the perils of Fosters Folly, the worlds fi rst ski tow, we climb Mont Tremblant in the Thirties and we ride the ski trains with their smells of wax, orange peels and cigar smoke.

And we also meet those earlier legends, the larger-than-life Curé Labelle, and the tragic Viscount DIvry who lived in a magnifi cent chateau on the shores of Lac-Manitou. This is also the story of how the Laurentians helped Montrealers weather two World Wars and the Depression. Its a great story and the authors have told it well.

It was New Year’s Eve, 1952, at the Laurentian Lodge Club in the foothills of the Laurentian mountains. The members, out of their snowy ski togs and dressed to the nines, were sipping their pre-dinner drinks in the comfortable lounge, beside the Christmas tree and the blazing fieldstone fireplace.
