Doug Meyers Memorial Cup (9th annual)

Doug Meyers Memorial Race

Ski clubs from all over Southern Alberta participate in Lake Louise Ski Club’s annual Doug Meyers race. The event includes two races held over the weekend. One race is specifically set for athletes registered in E2 programs that ski 50+ days per season (e.g., Lake Louise KD program), and the other race is specifically set for E1 programs that ski approximately 20 days per season (e.g., Lake Louise Nancy Greene 21-day program).  The race is an opportunity to celebrate the memory of Doug and showcase our club as a leader in sportsmanship, fun and fair play and the spirit Doug and his family have nurtured throughout the years within the Lake Louise Ski Club.
 
Douglas G. Meyers 1972-2003
 
Doug Meyers had a long-standing relationship with the Lake Louise Ski Area.  It began in 1985 when he skied competitively with the Lake Louise Ski Club, placing in the top 15 of the Canadian Juvenile Finals. It continued from 1990-1997 with coaching, and later as head coach, with the Nancy Greene Ski program. Doug died of an aggressive form of brain cancer on April 10, 2003 at 30 years of age.  He left behind a legacy of love, acceptance for all and enthusiasm for life.
