By Michael Hewett, National Pro-Deal Manager (email@example.com)
We know many members are anxious to know about the pro deals available this coming winter season. Here is a comprehensive update on the multiple brand partners we work tirelessly to bring to you. While every effort has been made to have our full list of pro deals updated at the time of writing this article, there are a few that are still in progress.
Please be sure to keep checking the pro deal page on the members’ website for the most up-to-date information. Each partner pro deal will include a note at the bottom of each write up indicating when it was updated last.
It is important to recognize that all of the brand offers your pro deal team secures for the CSP membership are a privilege, and to respect the terms and conditions each brand partner outlines for access. Unless otherwise stated, all pro deal offers are meant for CSP members to make purchases for personal use only.
New brand partners
We are very excited to share with you the new brand partners we’ve negotiated on your behalf:
- Impact Canopy
- Liberty Skis
A complete explanation of these brand deals can be found here.
Retired brand partners
The following brands have not been renewed for the 2021-2022 winter season and will no longer be available to our membership:
- Canada Outdoor Equipment
- Baist Apparel
Sometimes our brand partnerships come to a natural end, and sometimes the offering isn’t competitive enough to meet our high standards. The CSP pro deal team works hard throughout the year to maintain and nurture brand relationships, and we are always seeking ways to make sure what we bring to you is useful, competitive and worthwhile. It’s not uncommon for there to be shifts in our brand partner offering every few years.
Changes/updates to existing brand partner deals
The following brands have adjusted their offering for our members:
- Auclair – Limited-time offer until November 15. Offer will return after the holidays.
- Thule – This partnership continues to be suspended until further notice.
- Burton – Program is renewed. A limited number of codes are available for this season.
- XspeX Goggles – CSP Goggle strap included (limited quantities)
Please read through each brand description on the pro-deals page to familiarize yourself with what the current and active offering is.
Changes to the national pro deals team
We thank Nigel McCreary for all his effort supporting the CSP’s pro deals efforts and welcome Mark Fenster, Alexandre Desemery and Terry Mitchell to the team. Continuing team members are Geoff Scotton, Mark Crone, Scott Lacey, Shane Macaulay, Benoit Murray and team manager Michael Hewett.
Do you think you might have a good idea for a potential pro deal? Do you have contacts with brands that have suggested some sort of national partnership with the CSP? We are always open to exploring potential new brand partnerships. Feel free to send a note to CSP Pro-Deal Manager Michael Hewett (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will explore if the brand and its potential offering meet our needs and standards.
If you have questions about specific brand deals, please contact the pro deal team member listed in each description on the members’ website.
