Troll Resort

I had the privilege of meeting Lars and Astrid Fossberg a long time ago at a Canada West manager's reception. They started Troll Resort in 1970, and there is an industry award bearing Lars' name that is presented each year. Lars and Astrid have both passed on, and their daughter now runs the resort.

About the Lars Fossberg Award
"Following his passing in 2001, the Lars Fossberg Award was created by Lars' family in remembrance of a remarkable man and to acknowledge and encourage the younger up and coming people in our industry who exhibit the attributes and passion that was Lars. The idea for this award originated with Lars' grandchildren. This award is presented annually to the manager or supervisor who shows a high degree of initiative and creativity together with the ability to improvise when dealing with the unexpected."

I've driven by a few times - Troll is on the way to Barkerville. Time to stop for photos.

Do you watch "Timber Kings" I think that is their Dummy Downhill entry on the roof.

Present from either Timber Kings or Carver Kings


I didn't go for a hike.
