Name a Ski Run After Martin Hollay

  • by: Karis H

Martin Hollay is turning 97 this November 1st, 2017. As a birthday surprise, we want to see a ski run named after him. Martin grew up in Hungary with a love for cross country skiing. He came to South Lake Tahoe in 1958. He cut the runs at Squaw Valley for the 1960 Olympics for cross country skiing. Then he worked at Harvey's parking cars and Heavenly part time for his ski pass. In 1964, Martin went to work full time at Heavenly until he retired in 1990. He cut many of the Nevada Runs on Heavenly and saw the Mountain through many changes and innovations. Since 1990 he skis Heavenly as much as possible. He skied 96 days this year at Heavenly and did his own snow removal. He is an inspiration to following your dreams and staying active. We are looking for signatures from people who know Martin or know of him and are inspired by his story, those who ski Heavenly, or live locally. Sign if his story inspires you to come and ski Heavenly. Then share this petition with your friends and family, or Facebook page. Martin's love for Heavenly is unquestionable in the following video. Please watch to the end and sign this petition to name a Ski Run After Martin Hollay. These names will be added to the paper petition started by Tom McGowan who has collected 827 signatures to date!!!. The video was wonderfully produced by Randall Neece.
