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.

Wherever you are across this vast country, I am quite certain that you’re continuing to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. While some of us have snow and are able to ski, others live in areas like Ontario, where there is snow on the ground but ski resorts are closed. My heart goes out to members in this situation. Such strange times. I hope everyone finds a way to stay sane and keep moving forward.
