History

Robin McLeish is a Canadian former World Cup skier who competed from 1977 to 1984. Originally from Ontario, he started racing with the Camp Fortune Ski Club, participating in the Pontiac Cup, Can-Am, Europa Cup, and World Cup. He then moved on to the Canadian Alpine Ski Team, with which he raced in locations including Whistler, Alpen, Val-d'Isere, Kitzbuhel, Wengen, and Lake Louise. He was the Canadian downhill champion in March 1981.

Following his retirement, McLeish served as race director and territory manager for Salomon Ski from 1984 to 1995, promoting the ski brand across Canada and securing the first three World Cup downhill athletes who used them (Rob Boyd, Ralf Socher, and Luke Sauder). He was the race manager for Benetton Group from 1996 to 1997 and the alpine race manager and sales representative for Fischer Sports from 2005 to 2013. He founded Outfront Sports Corp, British Columbia's leading year-round mountain sports agency, in 1996 and has served as its president and sales representative since then.

Robin McLeish received the City of Kanata Civic Award in 1981 for recognition of achievement in skiing and the Canadian Ski Council’s Appreciation Award in 1991 for outstanding contribution to the sport of skiing in Canada.
