The Township of Manitouwadge Kiwissa Ski Hill – It’s more than skiing and snowboarding. It’s our livelihood, it’s our local community, it’s the reason we thrive in winter.
“In the fall of 1956, at one of their first meetings, with 12 members in attendance, they came to a deadlock as to what should be the name chosen for the ski hill. There were 6 votes for “Manitouwadge Ski Club” and 6 votes for “Kiwissa Ski Club.” The latter name honouring a local Ojibway trapping family was chosen. They didn’t record how the tie was broken, but “Kiwissa Ski Club” was accepted unanimously as the new name.” -Taken from: Manitouwadge Cave of the Great Spirit. Author: Pauline Dean
