Ski Telemark and Instructors are deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the recent passing of long-time supporter: Cheri Doman of SOJOURN on December 7th, 2020.
Cheri will be remembered fondly by hosting our annual Ski Telemark evenings and SOJOURN’s ongoing support of telemark skiing in southern Ontario.
Cheri leaves a beautiful legacy with her deceased husband Mike Moran for their shared and great passion for the outdoors, adventure, play and the vision and joy they gave to sooo many through their outdoor retail store: SOJOURN in Barrie, Ontario.
