My Story –

Syd Feuz:

At 88 I consider myself blessed with a long history in Golden, B.C. where I was born and have lived in the Edelweiss Swiss Village constructed in 1911.

I am connected to more than 200 first ascents and early expeditions through the mountains around Golden and the neighbouring National Parks.

At the age of 75, I retired from my work as a heli ski guide and family tradition dating back to 1899 when my grandfather, Edouard Feuz Sr., and Christian Haesler were engaged as the first mountain guides by the CPR guiding guests through the Rockies and Purcells.

Skiers and mountain enthusiasts, I and my wife, Beda of 65 years, have contributed a great deal to Golden. I am an honorary member of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (my guide training pre-dates the creation of that Association in 1963). I was also an original heli ski guide in the area of Golden and the parks surrounding us.

As a community member I was an initial founder of the Kinsmen Club of Golden and have participated on many boards including; the local School Board and East Kootenay Community College for 25 years.

Golden has epic ski conditions with so much damn snow; I skied at the current Kicking Horse Mountain Resort Ski area before it was a ski hill.
