CCSAA Annual Conference 2019



Please join CCSAA at its Annual Conference April 2 & 3 at the Olympic Regional Development Authority in Lake Placid NY.  The Conference is a great opportunity to not only listen to relevant speakers within our Nordic community, but to spend time with other owner/operators of cross country ski areas,  to get some great spring skiing on the silver star trails and share ideas of what works and does not work.

This year’s event will be packed with interactive grooming and maintenance elements as well as fat bike, employee retention, safety and risk management and more.  The Conference is moving away from the traditional speaker to more interactive and hands-on elements.  You will see this reflected in the agenda.  We feel collaboration and discussion on our topics are for more beneficial than only listening to a presenter.   There will be opportunities to spend time with presenters and learn about specifics about how their subject pertains to your for your ski area.

Presentations will be in both English and French to better accommodate those in Eastern Canada..

Retailers and area ski shops will also have the ability to place their finals orders at the Conference and still take advantage of the pre-season pricing offered at the Jan shows.  This is a great opportunity to take advantage of.

To be able to sit down one on one with the exhibitors was really helpful.  I had my website analyzed and now I know what areas to improve upon.  I can imagine Grey Suit Retail picked up a few new accounts out of this conference.  It was a soft and non-intimidating approach – soooo valuable.
