We’re sorry to announce the passing of Mark Labow, Life Member No. 6. Mark was our longest serving member and a true builder of the Canadian Ski Patrol. He was also the founder of FIPS, the Fédération internationale des patrouilles de ski.

Mark Labow with President and CEO Colin Saravanamuttoo. (November 2017)

Mark was actively involved with the Canadian Ski Patrol for 70 years and was a strong supporter until the very end. In fact, he recently offered to share his story in our latest fundraising campaign. His impact on the Canadian Ski Patrol was profound.
