École Snow Eagle Ski School
(1947)
Prestigious ski school know for many decades as "the best in all of North-America”.
Inducted in 2004

The Snow Eagle Ski School has a distinguished history of excellence recognized throughout North America. It was consistently called “the best on the continent”. The quality of its instruction and instructors, particularly under Réal Charette’s tenure as director in the late ‘40s and through four decades, has been second to none. There is a saying that “if you have taught at Gray Rocks you can almost write your own ticket at other ski resorts”. It was the Snow Eagle Ski School which invented the “learn to ski week” in the 50s as well as the “ski bra”, a teaching aid developed by instructor Freddie Albers to help maintain ski tips together while teaching the snow plow. It’s ski school directors over the years form an elite few: Hans Faulkner, Herman Gadner, Luggi Foeger, Réal Charette, Eddie Eustace and Wayne Bradburn.
