CSIA National

Reminiscing about those years when you were a ski instructor? Do you miss those days when you were skiing all day and meeting your friends for après-ski? Are you looking for new and exclusive events as well as exciting benefits?

The CSIA will be offering new activities, services, training and benefits for its alumni instructors of all ages. Anybody who has been a CSIA member for a year or more is considered an alumni.

A pilot project will take place during the 2017/2018 season in the Laurentians (the cradle of skiing in Canada). In addition to the alumni instructors from the 12 existing snow schools, alumni from ski areas that are no longer in operation are all welcomed! (Côtes 40 / 80, Gray Rocks, La Marquise, Alouette, Alta, Castor, Plante, Sauvage and Sainte-Agathe, Sun Valley, Vallée Cochand, etc.

Afterwards, the concept will gradually unfold in the rest of Canada during the 2018/2019 season. Be part of this new community by completing the form below in order to receive information on the development of this exciting project! Hundreds of alumni have already signed up!
