You are reading the 42nd edition of the Communiqué!


Dear CSIA Member,

This is a very exciting time, as in less than two weeks, your Interski Team will be leaving for the World Congress, in Levi Finland.



Starting on March 23, watch for daily postings on snowpro.com and our social media channels. The Team has been working on a concept that we are calling the Levi 60. The idea behind Levi 60 is to have one-minute clips shot directly from the Interski Congress, documenting the Team’s journey and highlighting the Canadian demonstrations, presentations, and workshops to the world. The videos will also capture the numerous interactions and learnings from all the other ski nations.

The Team’s goal is to share the experience with you the Members on a daily basis, and capture as much of the learnings as possible in real-time!

The navigation will be indicated on the Home Page of snowpro.com.Stay tuned as we will be launching the introduction to the Levi 60 clips soon!



Are you interested in joining the CSIA Women in Skiing (WIS) Committee?

The WIS Committee is currently seeking nominees to apply for one of the two positions: one in the BC Region and one in the Ontario Region.

The deadline for expressions of interest is March 24, 2023.

Again this year, the CSIA wants to celebrate the efforts of one Ski Instructor from each Snow School in Canada! Earlier this month, we asked all Ski School Directors across the country to nominate one person for their team.

We’ve asked them to look for a Ski Instructor who makes a difference, goes above and beyond every lesson, and truly exceeds the client's expectations. Somebody who is...

  • Customer-service oriented.
  • Renowned for his or her achievements and vibrant personality.
  • Recognized by his or her peers and clients as a role model for the school.
  • A regular CSIA Member in good standing (CSIA dues paid as of December 31, 2022).

Stay tuned! In early April, a national list of all nominated Ski Instructors will be published, and we will draw names among them. The nominees might win a special piece of ski equipment from one of our Sponsors.  

This person might be you!


On behalf of the Staff Team,

Best Regards,

Perry Schmunk

CSIA Managing Director
