A local resident has received a high honour.

Pass Powderkeg Manager Katherine Seleski has been named as one of The Ski Area Management magazine's top 11 under 30.

Seleski has been working in the ski industry for 10 years and took the role of manager at the Pass Powderkeg in 2018.

"It's a huge honour to be nominated for it and then to be nominated as one of the top 11 under 30 in North America is a huge deal especially because we would be one of the smallest ski areas to have a staff member to have won this. It puts Pass Powderkeg on the map. Having read this magazine for years and having it foster my love for the industry, it's a very big deal," said Seleski.

Seleski's journey in the ski industry began due to her family.

"My family's been involved with Castle Mountain resort since before I was born. I got to watch that ski hill grow up with me. My mom helped build the first website and my family’s been community members up there for over 25 years. I began working there as a ski instructor and realized that was my passion. I loved being in the ski industry. The industry is fascinating. Running a ski hill is kind of like running a town. You deal with utilities, staffing, management and community. It's a phenomenal industry to be a part of."

Seleski says the path she's on now is what she envisions herself doing for the rest of her life.

Seleski appreciates the support she has received from the community.

"I'm just so thankful for the community to give me the support to bring my passion to Pass Powderkeg and the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass. I love what I do and this community has allowed me to love what I do and hopefully make an impact on this amazing community ski area."
