Fireside Chat: Charlie Locke

Updated: Feb 14, 2020

Charlie Locke by Chic Scott

On November 26, 2019, elusive Rocky Mountain legend, Charlie Locke was interviewed by Chic Scott as part of the Whyte Museum's popular Fireside Chat series—now called Fireside Chat Series — Sponsored by the Wim and Nancy Pauw Foundation.

Charlie shared his stories of pioneering climbs on the North Face of Mount Temple and the Ten Peaks at Moraine lake and his epic ski traverse along the Continental Divide from Jasper to Lake Louise in 1967. Well-known in the Bow Valley as the owner of the Lake Louise Ski Resort, Charlie also related many of his experiences to business.


The next Fireside Chat will be on February 6, 2020 with Jillian Roulet. Jillian was the first woman to be appointed permanent superintendent of Banff National Park. During her time with Parks Canada Jillian has had to deal with a number of tough issues: the Banff Bow Valley Study and the ensuing park management plan, the Kootenay Park fire of 2003, the warden handgun issue and the ski area management plans.
