Managing Director

Welcome to this 6th edition of the “Communiqué!”  

We are now less than two weeks away from the first CSIA event of the season – The Lake Louise Pro Days Camp (aka Convention, see link below). There is still some availability (at publication time) for the lodging and for the Program! And Lake Louise has announced that they are opening tomorrow November 5th with more snow in the forecast!

As I write these lines, we are completing the second of two online zoom sessions for all our Course Conductors across the country, with a total of 495 in attendance. After these zoom sessions this week, the next step is on snow Course Conductor training from coast to coast, in the weeks ahead. Thank you to all the Course Conductors, who have taken part and are getting ready to deliver our Programs to you the Membership!
