First and foremost, you need to log into the website in order to find the information you need. To do this, click on the login button in the top right corner of the home page.
Enter your membership number and password here. These can be difficult to remember at times so best practice is to write them down somewhere for future reference.
Once you are logged in, lets go ahead and complete your membership by paying your dues for the season.
There are many benefits to paying your dues such as:
- Pro deals on ski equipment
- Free personal development sessions with Level 4 Course Conductors (PDP)
- Attending subsidized courses by the CSIA BC board such as Ignition Day, City Lights, Women only Workshop and Ken Paynter’s legendary KICK ASS CAMPS!
- Plus third party liability insurance should your season not go completely as planned.
Look for the blue Registration Renewal box.
Click on the link at (Access the membership renewal form) the bottom of the box and follow along adding information and clicking “Next step” when done. If the page won’t change address the fields with the red * asterisk beside them in order to complete the process.
Now that your annual dues are paid and you’re looking at your home page. I’m going to touch on a few key things that can make your life a lot easier. First thing is the Favorites Box. This is on the right side of the page, you need to scroll down to find it. This will have quick links to all the programs that are in your area that could be of interest to you. Look here for regional events. Such as Northern Fest, City Lights and Ignition days.
If you can’t find the course you want to register for there. You can search for it under the training tab that is at the top of the page on the left hand side. Click here and a pop down menu will appear with Available training, Online courses and Events as headers.
Click on the top option under the Available Training header that lets you search by Region, Mountain and Activity.
Now here’s a secret. You don’t need to know all the details of the course you want to sign up for. You just need to know the location of where it is or where you would like to ski. I always search under the location tab after I’ve selected the region I ski in. This shows me all the courses being held at that specific mountain over the course of the season. Scroll down until you find the course you’d like to register for and voilà! Don’t have time to look through all the courses? You can narrow your search using the date field to the days that work best for you.
I hope this makes your life a little easier and gives you more time to spend on the snow instead of staring at the screen. Take care and I look forward to seeing you on snow.
