By Michael Hewett, National eStore Coordinator and Pro Deals (


With winter on our doorstep, it’s time to take advantage of our vast pro deals program that delivers top-notch equipment and services to members at reduced prices.

The CSP pro deals program can be accessed by going to the CSP national website:, and then logging in as a member. Look for the “Current Pro Deals” button, which will take you to details of the three dozen offerings members can access.

There are deals related to apparel, skis and snowboards (and boots), gear such as backpacks, avalanche beacons, rescue equipment, and ski and snowboard car carriers, glasses, eyewear and goggles, travel and other offers.

New this year is Spy Optics (coming soon) and Bracelayer.

In most cases, these deals are for the personal use of members only. Generally they are not for buying items for friends and family. These pro deals are offered to us by the sponsor companies to reflect the positive contribution we bring to skiing and snowboarding. Please respect the terms of the offers and don’t abuse the generosity of the program. And please, be respectful in your interactions with the pro deal providers. They are our partners.

Some of the offers are:

·         Burton ·         Head
·         Elan K2 ·         Dynastar – Kerma – Lange – Look
·         Kastle ·         Fischer/Swix
·         Tecnica – Blizzard ·         Nordica

For the 2018-2019 season, the CSP’s pro deal efforts have been restructured around me, Michael Hewett, of the Brand and Partners portfolio, leading a team of CSP members from across Canada. Members of the team shepherd specific relationships with suppliers/partners. They include Mark Crone, Nigel McCreary, Maxim Langlais, Scott Lacey, and Geoff Scotton.
