(b. 11 May 1943)


Nancy Greene was born in Ottawa. She was a member of the Canadian National Ski Team from 1959-1968, and won the Canadian Championship six times. Her distinguished career also includes World Cup wins in 1967 and 1968 as well as Olympic medals. She married Al Raine in 1969.

Al and Nancy built a ski cabin in Whistler in 1970 and spent their summers there coaching on the glacier. When Al retired from the ski team in 1975, they moved back to British Columbia full time. Both Al and Nancy worked hard to help Whistler become a major international ski destination. Nancy became the unofficial 'Whistler Ambassador' promoting the area to investors, skiers and the media.

In 1985, following a two year sabbatical in Europe, the family returned to Whistler and built Nancy Greene's Olympic Lodge. Nancy and Al sold the hotel in 1988 and it was joined to the neighboring property, becoming Nancy Greene Lodge.
