By Geoff Scotton, Ski Improvement Clinic Coordinator, Mountain Division (

The 2023 CSP Mountain Division Ski Improvement Clinic will be our biggest ever, with for the first time not two, but three weeks available from late January through early March, all at the amazing Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, B.C.

  • Week 1 will be January 22 to January 27, 2023.
  • Week 2 will be February 5 to 10, 2023.
  • Week 3 will be February 26 to March 3, 2023.

The program includes four days of group lessons in either skiing or snowboarding, five days of lift access and a celebratory banquet on the Thursday night, all at the world-class venue of Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. There is pricing available for youth (13 to 17) and children (6 to 12), and additional one-day lift tickets available for adult, youth and children.

Attendees receive group ski or snowboard instruction for more than 20 hours across four days (Monday to Thursday), in groups of comparable competency to optimize learning. On the Thursday night is a highlight wrap-up banquet, with a day of unprogrammed skiing on the Friday. There’s a full and fun social agenda, and attendees also have access to great discounts on food, retail goods, fine dining and many other offerings. Also, awesome swag! This event is a blast.

The venue is amazing, the instruction is superb and the social atmosphere is unmatched. Don’t miss it. This event has sold out since at least 2015.

Pricing is very competitive, with the full program package of lifts, lessons and the banquet coming in at a very reasonable $633 for adults. Pricing for accommodation (booked separately) varies according to room type; prices for weeks 1 and 2 is up slightly, pricing for Week 3 is higher to reflect seasonal demand.

Although COVID-19 concerns across Canada have now abated considerably, the 2023 event will adhere to contemporary B.C. Ministry of Health guidelines and requirements.
