Administrative history

The Hollyburn Ridge Association was formed in 1973 to protect and promote Hollyburn Ridge, defined as the area of West Vancouver above the 1200 feet level between the Capilano River and Cypress Provincial Park. The objectives of the society were the preservation, protection, and continuance of the cabin area on Hollyburn Ridge, promotion of the recreational use and public access to the Hollyburn Ridge Area, and negotiation with all levels of government to encourage and promote the aims and objectives of the Hollyburn Ridge Association. The Association published a newsletter called the Ridgerunner from January of 1979.

Some members of the Hollyburn Ridge Association, along with Municipal Managers, served as members of the Hollyburn Ridge Sub-Committee convened by the Corporation of the District of West Vancouver to regulate use and building of cabins on Hollyburn Ridge.

Custodial history

The custodial history of the records is unclear. Approximately half of the material in the collection was donated to the West Vancouver Museum and Archives in 1994 (acccession no. 1994-006), but their custodial history prior to the donation is not documented. The remaining part of the textual records have no accession number attached to them, and their origin is unknown. Many of the photographs entered the archives as individual donations and, because of their subject matter, were later gathered to form the Hollyburn Ridge Photograph Collection. Many of the photographs were also part of accession no 1994-006.

Scope and content

The collection consists of material relating to recreational activities at Hollyburn Ridge including ski competitions, ski jumping, the construction and leasing of cabins, and the involvement and organization of local ski clubs and related organizations.
