Martin Hollay to speak at history museum
Lake Tahoe Historical Society will present Martin Hollay as its guest speaker on Saturday.
Hollay, 92, spoke about glove-making last year. This year, he will talk about learning to ski in Budapest on barrel staves with broomstock poles, joining the Norwegian Ski Club from Los Angeles, his involvement with the 1960 Winter Olympics at Squaw Valley, a lifetime friendship with Olympian Alpine ski racer Stein Eriksen, and his career at Heavenly Ski Resort.
The talk, titled “Martin Hollay: A History of Skiing,” will be presented twice: at noon and 3 p.m. Reservations are required. The lecture is free for LTHS members and $3 for nonmembers. Members must present a membership card at the door. For reservations, call the museum at 530-541-5458 and leave your name and number. Limited space is available.
