Nancy Greene was Canada's top ski racer through the 1960's, winning gold and silver medals at the 1968 Grenoble Olympics and overall World Cup titles in 1967 and 68. Her total of 13 World Cup victories is still a Canadian record. She won 17 Canadian Championship titles in all disciplines.
Retiring at age 24, Nancy married Al Raine and together they have made skiing their life's work. They have been instrumental in the development and promotion of ski tourism in British Columbia, first at Whistler and now at Sun Peaks Resort just north of Kamloops. Nancy is Director of Skiing at Sun Peaks, Chancellor of Thompson Rivers University and was appointed as Senator for British Columbia, Government of Canada in January, 2009. Nancy and Al built Nancy Greene's Cahilty Lodge. Visit www.cahiltylodge.com for information on great holiday packages.
Nancy raced on Rossignol skis and has worked with them ever since. For great ski and snowboard equipment visit www.Rossignol.com
In November 1999 Nancy was named Canada's female athlete of the century, no doubt not only because of her athletic accomplishments but because she has continued to contribute to the sport she loves. The Nancy Greene Ski League, for example, is where young Canadians get their start in ski racing.
This website is the official website of Nancy Greene. Nancy hopes that it will assist youngsters researching for school projects and she encourages them to contact her with any specific questions. Nancy answers emails, but is not at her computer on a regular basis - she prefers to be outside skiing or playing golf!
