This winter around December 27 or 28 we had substained winds of over 150 km/h for more than three hours. It's in the books now. First gold medal for snowboarders? Ross Rebagliati. His name may even appear in Trivial Pursuit one day. So quick now - who won the first gold for alpine skiing? Snowboarding became a medal sport in the eighteenth winter games. Alpine skiing got in for the fourth. Things were a little different back then. Hill skiing was frowned on as an aberration by the Scandinavian countries and was ignored in the first three winter Olympics. Nordic skiing and jumping were the real ski sports back then. Hill skiing was a relatively new sport in the 1930's. Canada sent a team to the very first Olympics that sanctioned alpine skiing in Garmisch, Germany, in 1936. The team was initially comprised of Karl Baadsvik, W.L. Ball, W.G. (Bud) Clark, Norman Gagne, Hans Gunnarson, Tormod Mobraaten, Lukin Robinson, and Peter Robinson. The Robinson brothers dropped out because they didn't want to have anything to do with Adolf Hitler's Germany, and Hans Gunnarson had to withdraw because the newly formed Canadian Olympic Ski Committee couldn't afford to send him. The rest of the team left Montreal on January 3rd, 1936. They took a train to the Bay of Fundy where they boarded the vessel Duchess of Atholl on January 4th. They sailed to Halifax where they were wined and dined by members of the Maple Leaf Ski Club, then they set off across the North Atlantic. The North Atlantic is rather rough in the wintertime. The team entertained themselves by keeping track of meals lost and birds shot. Meals lost is obvious, birds shot is the term they come up with for what happens if the meal goes down but doesn't stay there. They got to Scotland and steamed up the Clyde on January 10th. They got into a tender the next morning before 5 am and managed to finally make the dock in spite of the high seas. They were met by a CPR agent who rushed them to Glasgow in a bus where they caught an express for Edinburgh. After a number of changes they made Grimsby that night. They left Grimbsy on a tiny little steamer (the Accrington - 2,000 tons) headed for Hamburg. After an overnight journey they arrived and spent the day sightseeing. They got on a train for Munich that night. They finally arrived in Garmisch on January 14th. They had been travelling for eleven days - and they'd been travelling hard. Obviously these guys really wanted to race. They had arrived in lots of time. They spent the first few days unloading their gear, inspecting the village, and training. Sunday's were a break day so they usually took the cable car up the Zug Spitze for some fun skiing. There were three downhill courses, only one of which would be chosen for the actual race by the FIS. The Olympic Games News Service Bulletin said: "The three courses are situated in the Kreuzeck area. They demand mastery of swerving as well as balance from the competitors, so less will depend on luck that on perfect ski-ing skill. The course to be used will only be made known immediately before the contest, being flagged and closed down on the previous day." The courses were called the Standard, Kremp, and Neuner and they intimidated the Canadian team a little. They were reached by a twenty minute taxi ride and an eight minute cable car ride, then a half-hour jaunt along the level and a five hundred foot climb. All three courses had the same start and finish. W.L. Ball remembers, "Most of the time, because of the warm winter, they were glazed with ice on the lower two thirds while the upper third was deep powder. We had trouble with these trails because they were not only narrow but steep and bumpy. There was no doubt that they were a real test of skiing and much faster and tougher than any we had in Canada." The team discovered that the skis they needed were about seven feet three inches long (225 cm) with Kandahar cable bindings and Lettner steel edges. They bought the skis for $9 a pair, boots for the same price, and the bindings for under $5. Within a week only one team member, Bud Clark, was capable of skiing. The rest had injured themselves training. Luckily by race day most of them had recovered. At one point the American team, which was much bigger, had ten of their thirty man team under doctors care. On February 3rd the Neuner was chosen. It was the toughest and steepest of the three runs. It was open for two days for training and the first aid stations that lined the course were kept very busy. The seeding system was already being used and the Canadians ended up in the second and third seeds. The course itself dropped 3,116 vertical feet. The first five hundred feet progressed through sparse spruce woods then turned 120 degrees. Then there was short, flat section, then it dropped another five hundred vertical feet as it wound back and forth down a
