June 2001: I am sorry to report, and was saddened by the news that Mark Kingsbury was killed riding his motorcycle near his home in Banff, Canada in early June. Mark was a Madhouse man through and through spending 1967 and 1969 at Madison and the interceding Summer at Greenleaf. He was a dynamic figure shaping Canadian Mountain Holidays into the premier, modern back-country HeliSkiing company with few peers. For anyone who has experienced a CMH week, you can see the Huts influence throughout. Each of his lodges presented it’s own unique identity.

He will be greatly missed. His friends have created the  Mark Kingsbury Foundation.

    Remember he would come to an evening meal when I was skiing with CMH in the 80’s! Tragic loss!
