As part of CANSI’s strategic plan to attract and retain members, we have identified the need to improve our website.

Charles Blair Interski Scholarship Posted on Nov 28th, 2017

Donations for the Charles Blair Interski Scholarship are intended to financially help selected instructors who will represent the association at Interski. Interski, the international convention for ski instructors, takes place every fourth year in the most famous ski resorts across the world.


It is to honor the memory of Charles Blair that CANSI created this fund.

Charles was part of the CANSI demonstration team at Interski 2015 in Patagonia. He generously shared his experience with the association and structured CANSI’s efforts to organize the training and preparation of instructors for next Interski’s demonstration team.

Attention all Mountain Members
