It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Hans Kuwall – Funeral Details
It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Hans Kuwall on 25 December. Through his instruction and coaching at Hillend, Carrbridge Ski School and the Scottish Ski Club in particular, Hans had a massive influence in the development of Scottish ski racers over many years. He was a character and a legend in Scottish skiing and I’m sure there will be many funny and fond Hans stories being remembered and re-told. Our thoughts are with his family.
Details of the funeral below. There will be speakers broadcasting the service outside for anyone wanting to remain outside and there is a plan to organise an archway of skis for the attendees to walk under as they exit the church. If any of those who trained with Hans over the generations would like to bring a ski with them they are welcome to participate in that simple gesture of appreciation. Loddy Cooke (Beckett) will have the lead in organising that on the day.
