We recently put up our new trail signage for Trav's Trail. Located at the top of our new Goulais triple lift, Trav's Trail is dedicated to the one and only Robert Travaglini!
Bob began skiing at Searchmont for the first time in 1963 when he was just 12 years old. During the next 57 years, he forged countless friendships and made a lasting impression on everybody he came in contact with.
Many were lucky enough to have Bob as a ski instructor. His name tag at the resort read “B.T.” or as one student aptly proclaimed, Best Teacher! Bob was thrilled to receive his 40 year pin from the Canadian Ski Instructor’s Alliance (CSIA). His contribution to the sport of skiing is legendary.
All of us will deeply miss Bob, both in the lodge and out on the hill. His routine became a daily tradition as he would get ready for the day on the same bench every morning and greet all those who walked by.
Searchmont Resort honoured Robert Travaglini’s legacy by introducing Trav’s Trail during the 2021-2022 season. Well deserved for an incredible ski instructor and a wonderful human being. We miss you, Bob.
