About Us

The Hollyburn Heritage Society was formed in 1998 with two main goals in mind:

1. To restore Hollyburn Ski Lodge for future generations to enjoy, and

2. To collect, assemble, catalogue and share the history of Vancouver's North Shore mountains; in particular, Hollyburn, Black, and Strachan.


HHS is a Canada Revenue Agency registered non-profit charitable society. We welcome financial donations for which you will receive an income tax deduction receipt. Your donations support HHS projects that advance the Society's mandate. If you would like to donate, please contact us using the Contact Us form on this page. Donations of $25 or more will automatically enrol you as a member in HHS.

HHS membership is by way of financial donation, volunteer time or historical items (photographs, articles, etc.). If you would like to join and contribute, please use the Contact Us on this page.
