Want to become a CANSI instructor?

CANSI is the national association for the training and certification of cross country and telemark ski instructors in Canada.

Anyone 15 years of age or older can attend a Level I course in either cross country or telemark discipline. Level I courses are offered across Canada.

Upon successful completion of a Level I course you become a member of CANSI and this gives you access to higher level certification course, refresher briefings, skill development programs and all technical information designed to help you grow and develop your skiing and teaching skills.

I hope you’re making snowy tracks wherever you are in Canada – I would be except for shoulder surgery this week.

December is one of the busiest months for ski instructors. There are refreshers to take and courses to give, not to mention time to spend with friends and family. That said, this may be a tough ask, but I’ll give it a go: have you considered volunteering for CANSI?

We know our members have a wide range of talents beyond sliding on snow, and we could use your help in several areas: on our website and manuals and in our communication in general. Our regions are always looking for enthusiastic volunteers too. If you’d like to help out in some way, please contact Garry Almond at 416-708-6430 or email him at [email protected]
