The Canadian Ski Council member organizations come from all walks of the Canadian ski and snowboard industry with the common goal to promote skiing and snowboarding to all Canadians. Our members include ski area operators, instructors, coaches, racing associations, retailers, patrollers, friends of the adaptive community and ski and snowboard gear manufacturers.
For an organization to become a member of the Canadian Ski Council, it must be a properly constituted national ski / snowboard organization interested in furthering the objectives of the Canadian Ski Council.
The Quebec Ski Areas Association represents and defends its members’ interests, promotes winter sports such as downhill skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding and works to improve ski areas’ performance and product quality.
