Vancouver, Donald Grant archivist/historian for
the Hollyburn Heritage Society, created a film,
"Heroes of the Harnessed Hickory", that tells the
story of Hollyburn Mountain's ski jumpers and ski
racers who were active during the 1920's, '30's,
'40's and '50's. Many of these individuals
competed at the provincial, national, and
international level. The influence of Scandinavian
immigrants on Vancouver's first generation of
competitive skiers is also explored in the film.
"Heroes of the Harnessed Hickory" is 50 minutes in
length and includes vintage movie clips from the
1930's and '40's, historic photos, and video taken
on the mountain during the past five years.
A script of the Heroes film (along with some
photos) is displayed on the HHS website under "Mtn
