Ignition Days Spark Passion for Skiing
Ignition Days in Whistler, Big White and Fernie have added a spark to kick start the season for 160 CSIA BC members. With Northern Festival at Troll Mountain in January, there will be plenty of fire to stoke passion for skiing and instructing this winter.
CSIA BC Committee wishes to thank all the trainers and host mountains for making these events a success.
The 2011 CSIA BC Annual General Meeting followed Ignition Day Whistler on 3 December. Those attending received regional updates from Zone Directors and a National up date from Otto Kamstra, the Chairman of the CSIA Board of Directors.
A snap-shot of the CSIA BC 2011 fiscal year was provided also. The Committee was pleased to announce that participation in level 1 courses continued to grow in 2011.
This year there were three Zone Seats up for election. Jonathan Squires and Jeff Topp will continue their work with the Committee as Kootenay Zone Director and Director at Large, respectively. Jonathan Mosley has joined the committee as a Southwest Zone Director.
CSIA BC is looking forward to another great season and will continue to provide the membership with events such as the Women’s Only Workshop in Whistler on 27 January, 2012, and Ken's Kick Ass Level 1 Ski Camp March 24/25, 2012 in Whistler. .
