A Vernon resident has been recognized nationally for his contributions to cross-country skiing.

Guy Paulsen has been named to the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance’s national hall of fame in the categories of builder and inspirational leader.

“Guy Paulsen is one of the most valued and respected contributors to the sport of skiing in Canada. His dedication and commitment to nordic skiing has been evident from day one,” said Michael Sherwood, Silver Star Mountain Resort general manager.

Paulsen, Silver Star’s nordic manager, has been a certified member of the CSIA for 30 years, during which he achieved his level four and certifications in both cross-country and telemark disciplines.

Paulsen was inducted for his significant contribution to the growth of the CSIA on a regional and national scale and for his lifelong dedication and commitment to skiing and ski teaching. As a CSIA committee member, Paulsen has been heavily involved on boards and various committees.

He also manages to dedicate time to the endeavors of the Canadian Association of Nordic Ski Instructors. As one of Canada’s top ski instructors, Paulsen has more than 25 years of global teaching and coaching experience and has represented Canada internationally at numerous skiing events.

Paulsen is regularly quoted in the media suggesting that Canadians stop running away from winter.

“Canadians need to embrace the winter and enjoy the benefits of all types of skiing. I love to watch what it does to people: their spirits are lifted, their cheeks are rosy, and they are inspired and uplifted,” he said.

 

“They are not just staring out the window waiting for winter to end. Believe me, I have seen skiing enrich lives.”
