Big Snow - Big Fun
Marcia Semenoff

  Alpine skiing emerged as a sport in Canada in the 1930's.  Forty years later, in the '70's, the Canadian Men's Alpine Ski Team earned the title "Crazy Canucks," and changed the sport forever.  

  Today, there are approx. 275 ski areas in Canada, and 2.5 million skiers/snowboarders. Most cite doing something together as a family as their motivation to hit the slopes.

  The artist learned to ski in Northern BC, where it was not unusual for the whole town to head to the local ski hill on a winter Sunday.  The Big Snow image is not based on memories or that hill, but rather an amalgam of Rocky Mountain Vistas.
