Cranbrook Hill Greenway Society
In 1991-92 the first survey of club members was undertaken. Over 140 families responded to the 36 questions asked. Topics in the survey ranged from type of skiing you do, the need for a larger cabin, where priorities should be, ie: touring or racing and also questions about the future vision of the club past the year 2000. At that time the development of UNBC on Cranbrook Hill was underway and one question asked was would members like to see a trail link from Otway to UNBC. The response was an overwhelming 84% in favour.
in 1993 the club took the lead role in establishing the Cranbrook Hill Greenway concept.
1994-96 saw the establishment of the Cranbrook Hill Greenway Society and the finalization of a route from Otway to UNBC. Members of the ski club were very instrumental in the route selection so that the best options for skiing were recognized. 1996-1999 saw the actual development of the Greenway and the associated trail with a large financial contribution from FRBC.
In 2000 a loppet was held from UNBC to Otway with over 200 participants.
