Fred Korman opened Ski Owl’s Head for business. With his wife Lillian and their daughter Caroll, Mr. Korman ran the ski hill’s debut season with two double chairlifts and one tow bar. Back then, visitors had the choice of six trails designed by Olympic skier Bob Richardson. What had started as a hobby business for the Mansonville electrician quickly turned into a four-season destination. Thanks to the vision of Fred and Liliian Korman, the centre continued to grow, year after year, along with development of the land and improvements to facilities and equipment.
