You are reading the 36th edition of the Communiqué!


Dear CSIA Member,

We are near the end of our Fall Course Conductor Training Cycle! On behalf of the entire staff, it has been great to connect with the Course Conductors Community and the Membership across the country. It is also great to see most ski areas are either open or now have an opening day scheduled!

In this edition of the Communiqué: A new partnership with Protect Our Winters Canada, our online store promo (just in time for Christmas shopping), and the National Office holiday schedule.



In our love of skiing, we have all experienced climate change firsthand. The CSIA is starting a partnership with Protect Our Winters Canada. We believe our love of the sport and our outdoor environment necessitates us doing our part to reduce the effects of climate change.

Protect Our Winters Canada is the leading organization in Canada that unites a passionate community of outdoor enthusiasts, professional athletes, and industry brands to advocate for policy solutions to climate change.

Here is how we, as CSIA Members, can help. 

The first step is adding our individual voices. Fight climate change with your e-mail and sign up to become a POW member. It’s free and signing up makes a huge impact.POWer in numbers! Sign-up here!
