Welcome to this 8th edition of the “Communiqué!” 




Hi, everyone!

I am writing this edition of the Communiqué from Pro Days Camp at Mont Tremblant. We are enjoying great early season conditions! It is beyond words, the excitement to be able to be back connecting with the Membership across the country in events like this! Tonight’s dinner at the Mountain Top will be celebrating this year’s Hall of Fame Inductions; Knute Dohnberg, Eric Rousseau (posthumously), and Pierre Godbout.

We are about halfway done our Course Conductor Training roll out this season, with the completion of the Mont Tremblant session yesterday. During the Lake Louise Course Conductor Training sessions, we were able to capture some highlights from that event on video. Click here to watch.

Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) also took place during our Lake Louise event. For those who missed it, click here to find the recording on snowpro.com. 

This was our first “hybrid AGM” that was held both in person and virtually on zoom!

The CSIA continues to promote ongoing education through its Scholarship Program. Financial assistance is made available to aspiring full-time and part-time Ski Instructors that have unmistakably demonstrated their commitment to the sport of skiing and have distinguished themselves by their initiative and involvement in their Snow School. We are very proud to say that a portion of the Scholarship Program is funded through voluntary contributions received from CSIA Members at large. 

To apply for the Scholarship, please log in to your profile, go to the Member Area tab, then select Scholarship Application from the quick access menu.

As you may know, many ski resorts in the country are short-staffed and struggling to have enough staff to meet the instructing needs this season.

Whether you are a new or an experienced Instructor, your local resort needs you! If you are a Member in good standing, you want to use your CSIA skills and be part of an amazing team of ski pros (part time or full time), then it is time to reach out! Many schools offer great pass privileges and an enjoyable working environment. Find out more about the perks of being part of a Snow School in your area and have fun this winter!

This is such an exciting time of year as ski resorts are opening up across the country and we are all able to get back on snow! Until the next issue, I hope everyone stays safe and I look forward to seeing you on the slopes!


Best Regards,

On behalf of the entire CSIA Staff Team,

Perry Schmunk

Managing Director
