22nd edition of the Communiqué




Dear CSIA Member,

It might be a bit early to mention, but in 5 days, the days will start to get shorter, and we will move towards next winter!

I am excited to see posts from our Members who live and work in the Southern Hemisphere… It looks like they have been blessed with good early snow in both Australia and New Zealand, which is so nice to see after the hard-hitting impacts of COVID during the last two seasons!



If you have not seen the last editions of Communiqué, we are recruiting for the Education Program Coordinator roles in both Ontario and Alberta. The deadline for applications is tomorrow (Friday, June 17th, 11:59 pm EST). These are both full-time, year-round positions and an exciting opportunity at the CSIA! Click here to find out more.



Although we officially will not open Program registration until the fall, we are working on final details with venues for our first on-snow events next winter and will be providing ”save the date” information in the next issue of the Communiqué. That will include both Course Conductor Training and our kick-off Member Pro Days Camp Events!



Last season, the CSIA released the following three videos on snowpro.com. (Note that you must be logged in to consult the videos from the Resources tab on the site).

Collaborative Teaching Approach Video

Physics of Skiing Video

Skills Framework Video

Over this summer, we are developing additional resources that will be released next fall. For the first time in three years, we were able to get some filming done at the end of the season, which gave us the footage we need to create the next round of visual resources for you, our Membership!

This is a busy time for the National Board and the Staff, as we work towards completing our Operational Plan and Budget for the 2022-2023 season. The deadline to complete this work is our fiscal year-end, June 30th.





Renew before June 30 and keep your Membership and Certification active, allowing you to enjoy the many benefits that CSIA has to offer, such as a $750 cash back on your next purchase or lease of new Subaru vehicles. You will also avoid any reinstatement fees next season!
