About the Fundraiser

   

 

 

 

 

 

The Lisa Korthals Memorial Bursary is designed to create a living legacy to the memory of Lisa Korthals. It is intended to create a bursary to be used by women to help them get a start in their Mechanized Ski Guiding career and is awarded annually.

Lisa was a towering member of the Pemberton backcountry skiing community and we are thrilled to be raising funds in her memory that will help the career of a new female ski guide.
