For most of his life Ernie McCulloch's name was synonymous with Canadian skiing.  He started out as a ski jumper but early success in slalom racing made him switch to alpine skiing.  In 1949 he defeated the entire French Olympic team while competing in the Quebec Kandahar race.  In the 1951-1952 season he was the "Grand Slam" champion winning the US national GS title at Alta, the North American championship at Aspen, the national downhill title at Whitefish and the Harriman Cup.  In 1953 he repeated his Harriman Cup victory and then defeated some of the most prominent skiers of the day, including Olympic champion Stein Eriksen for the national downhill title.

In Canada he developed the highly respected Mont Tremblant Ski School and was prominent as an instructor and examiner of ski instructors.
