The Canada West Ski Areas Association (CWSAA) is a not-for-profit trade association that represents the Ski Areas of Western Canada. Its primary areas of focus are government relations, media relations, marketing, safety & risk management and industry conferences.
CWSAA was founded in 1967 and incorporated in 1973, under the Canada Corporations Act. In 2014, CWSAA submitted Articles of Continuance and new By-laws to Corporations Canada to facilitate a migration to the new Canada Not-for-profit Corporations Act.

On an annual basis, CWSAA Members in Western Canada receive 9 million skier visits and generate revenues of approximately $800 million. CWSAA Members account for over 90% of Ski Areas and over 99% of Skier Visits in Western Canada. This outstanding level of member support allows CWSAA to provide a strong and unified voice for the Western Canadian Ski Industry.
