In 1995 with the passing of Leroy Thiessen, his wife sold his sports equipment and donated the proceeds of the sale went to the ski club. A Leroy Thiessen Memorial Fund was created. The money from the equipment sale and proceeds from a Leroy Thiessen Memorial Fund was enough to build the timber frameworks for a semi-permanent warming hut. The club purchased a Quad track machine hoping that it would be an improvement over the 1996 and 1999 Alpine snow machines that Conservation had sold the club for $1.00 when the club was established.
