About Us

The Canada West Ski Areas Association (CWSAA) is a Not-for-Profit Trade Association which 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.

CWSAA currently has 285 Members, including 133 Ski Areas and 152 Suppliers to the Ski Industry.    On an annual basis, CWSAA Members in Western Canada receive 9.3 million skier visits and generate revenues of approximately $800 million.
