Footnotes

  • Doreen Elliot had a great deal to do with the early success of the Ladies Skiing Club. A founder member, she acted as Secretary for many years and was president from 1935-38. In 1928 Doreen Elliott competed in the very first Inferno and when a racer fell she climbed back and dug her out. Doreen still came 4th in that race. She competed in a major international at Zakopane in 1929 with another female despite the Polish organisers protesting that there was no precedent for ladies to race downhill. They came 13th and 14th in an entry of 60 men and when they entered the Warsaw restaurant that evening everyone stood up and applauded.
