Chris Hald – the Inspiration for Mt. Ashland’s Race League
Chris Hald was an inspiration to many at Mt. Ashland and was a huge supporter of ski racing locally and all along the west coast.
It was in high school that Chris’s love for skiing began as a founding member of the Ashland High School ski team in 1967. His passion for skiing continued to grow throughout life, becoming a certified level 3 ski instructor, Technical Delegate (TD), and member of the Professional Ski Instructors of America.
Chris’s influence in the skiing community could be strongly felt on Mt. Ashland, as well as throughout the Pacific Northwest. He loved the sport and did all that he could to help others learn to love it also, by encouraging and helping others to join ski teams and to pursue coaching positions. He also officiated many ski races at Squaw Valley and surrounding mountains. His jovial presence will be missed. In the most recent years, Chris’s joy was spending time with his daughters while teaching his grandchildren to ski.
Chris passed away on April 21, 2018 at the age of 67.
