The Canada West Ski Areas Association (CWSAA) recently concluded its winter Board of Directors meetings at Mount Washington Alpine Resort. The Board enjoyed some pristine ski conditions, between meeting time, from January 17-19. This is the first time the CWSAA Board meetings were held on Vancouver Island.

"It was great to see the CWSAA visit the Island," explains Resort President and CWSAA Board Chair Peter Gibson. "Many were impressed with the ease of access to the Island via Westjet and most of all, they were impressed with the beautiful views from the top of the mountain."

The CWSAA is the representative body for the ski areas and heli and snowcat operations of British Columbia and Yukon, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. Board members came to the Island from as far away as Asessippi Ski Area in Manitoba. Other Resorts attending the meetings included Whistler/Blackcomb, Marmot Basin, Sunshine Village and Cypress Mountain.

The winter meetings were wrapped up following a banquet dinner which featured Hon. Don McRae as guest speaker. The banquet dinner showcased local cuisine and included wild salmon, Fanny Bay oysters and clam chowder.
