CANSI Telemark Development Clinics - Interski 2019 Style Posted on Dec 21st, 2018

Interski Fundraiser: Using the Canadian method to develop a telemark skier


CANSI instructors on the Interski 2019 Canadian team need your support to cover some of the costs associated with participating in this major international ski instructor congress  (Pamporovo, Bulgaria, March 2019). They have decided on a formula that combines the useful with the fun: a day of ski technique development for CANSI instructors! 

For details and registration please read on.

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

We want to thank Mountain Equipment Coop for their help with this initiative. MEC provided CANSI with $20,000 through their Community Improvement Grant. Please help us show our gratitude to MEC by visiting a store in your area or online.

2005-2006 Mountain Region Year End Report Posted on Nov 28th, 2006

Post a comment

2005 – 06 was a brilliant year…. if you are a jogger. Every time we heard another meteorologist talk about the brilliant weather that Albertans were experiencing, an agonized cry went up from skiers across the province. A brief respite from the snow drought occurred in March, when a season’s worth of snow fell in one weekend, and paralyzed much of the province. Cars, busses and pedestrians were sidelined, but groomers, skiers and cross country addicts quickly headed to the trails to put a season’s worth of skiing in to two weeks.
