Since 1968, when the school in Alberta opened, there have been the adventurers who wanted to challenge the big hill referred to as “suicide hill”. Stories have been written about it. As recently as 2005 a senior student wrote in the year-end newsletter: “My best memory of suicide hill was when Robert McKay smashed his GT when someone left a cinder block on the trail. He was probably doing 60km/h when he went flying down the rest of the hill without his GT. No one knew what happened because it was dark and we just saw his head lamp fly into the air. We all laughed when he got back to the top of the hill with half of his GT though.”
