“The upcoming Olympic Heritage Celebration is timed to cash in on public enthusiasm for the 2010 Winter Olympics, opening Feb. 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia. And it’s more than just a nostalgia bash. The underlying goal is to raise funds and support for a ski museum to be built at a yet-to-be-determined North Shore location.
