Hitting the Hills

With fresh snow falling throughout the day, this year’s Ted Pope Day was a fantastic day living up to everyone’s expectations and memories of years past!

The tradition of taking the whole school skiing for a day began in 1970. This year, over 400 students and staff enjoyed a fabulous day of skiing/snowboarding on Thursday, January 29 at Sir Sam’s in Haliburton. This is a day when the entire student body and all faculty head to the hill for a day of skiing and snowboarding. Bus after bus made the trek early Thursday morning for a day of skiing, snowboarding or just hanging out in the chalet playing games, reading and relaxing. After a great BBQ lunch, an exciting Grand Slalom event took place throughout the afternoon organized by Peter Andras for skiers and snowboarders!

It was a great day for everyone!

Ted Pope Day is named after an Old Boy who attended the Grove from 1939-1942. Ted Pope loved the thrill of adventure, and he found it skiing, mountain climbing and car racing. He was responsible for redefining the scope of downhill skiing, expanding into new areas with the addition of lifts, jumps, and inter-scholastic competition. Ted Pope joined the Navy after graduating from LCS, and he later worked eight years for the CBC as a television producer. He died in 1960, when his TR3 race car spun out of control.
