History of High Park Clubs

There used to be one club -- The High Park Ski Club.

The High Park Ski Club started at the High Park YMCA in the 50s.
We did all kinds of activities together: cross-country skiing and downhill skiing and snowshoeing and hiking and biking and rollerblading and canoeing and camping and dancing...

As the membership grew and the focus diverged, we decided to separate the different activities into independently operated clubs. Thus the creation of the High Park Hiking Club.
