In the 1990s Gordon and Iola Knight developed concern regarding the condition of the Hollyburn Ski Lodge at First Lake. In 1997 Gordon Knight and Bob Tapp joined together to raise money to repair the Hollyburn Ski Lodge, as the foundation was severely rotten, the roof leaked, and there were other structural problems. The Knights and Tapps launched their campaign to "Save First Lake Lodge" at the 1997 Pioneer Skiers' Reunion on Mount Seymour. In 1998 they sold a Hollyburn Ski Lodge coffee cup to raise interest in the Lodge. At this time the Knights also began to collect historic photographs of life on Hollyburn Mountain.
In the Spring of 2000, the Tapps and the Knights formed the Hollyburn Heritage Society, with the mandate to collect the history and artifacts of skiing and other mountain activities on Hollyburn Mountain and to promote the restoration and preservation of the Hollyburn Ski Lodge. Their organization received society status in April 2000, and in the spring of that year, the Hollyburn Heritage Society, with the support of Wayne Booth, Cypress Bowl Recreations Ltd, was awarded $2567 from the federal government as part of the Canada Millenium Partnership Program to film the Pioneer Skiers' Reunion held at First Lake and the Hollyburn Ski Lodge. Bob Cooper produced the film, titled "Hollyburn, A Place of Memories". The film was sold on the mountain in VHS format. The Hollyburn Heritage Society has acquired numerous collections of photographs, particularly through the initiative of historian Don Grant.
