Don Grant will be presenting his film on the history of the Diamond Head Chalet and area. This is an area that most of us have been more times that we can count. The area has a fascinating history as to how it became to be such a popular back country destination.

Since the early 1900's, hikers have been venturing into Garibaldi Provincial Park to explore and take pleasure in its numerous alpine lakes, ponds, streams and meadows. Climbers have come to scale several challenging peaks within the park including Mount Garibaldi and Mamquam Mountain. Since the late 1930's, skiers have been traversing its vast snowfields and frozen lakes. In the early 1940's, three Hollyburn pioneers, Joan Mathews, Ottar Brandvold, and his brother Emil, formed a partnership and worked out a plan to build a number of mountain chalets in Garibaldi Provincial Park, linked together by trails. During summer seasons they searched for the best building sites and ultimately chose Elfin Lakes as the location of their first chalet. During the next few years, Joan, Ottar, and Emil worked hard to realize their dream.....Members and guests are welcome. Pre-registration is NOT required.
