The ski industry has a lot to celebrate, but there are still some concerns that it’s too focused on getting people out on the slopes.
That’s what a new report from the Canadian Ski Industry Association (CSIA) is trying to get rid of.
According to the CSIA, the current ski industry is dominated by the North American ski industry.
That means the vast majority of the industry is made up of people in North America.
“A lot of what we see in the North America ski industry, they don’t see a need for them, they’re in a pretty good position,” said CSIA president, David Sibley.
“It’s a very competitive industry and that is what the CSIO wants to change.”
Sibleys report says there are three key things the industry needs to get ready for this winter.
The first is to get out there and be proactive about making sure the people in your community are prepared.
The second is to keep your product safe and the third is to improve your customer service.
“The CSIO has been in the industry for about two decades and they’re very clear in their message that the ski industry needs more proactive safety and customer service,” said Sibleyt.
The CSIO also wants the industry to be aware of the needs of those with autism spectrum disorders.
That includes children, the elderly, people with certain medical conditions and those with other learning and behavioral issues.
“People with autism and their families need to understand the ski environment, that skiing is a great way to get around town and to get to know other people and to share that ski experience with friends and family,” said David Sibier, president of the CSI.
“When you go to a ski shop and you see all those kids who’ve never seen a ski, and you don’t want to be in a situation where that is your only opportunity to share your skiing with people.”
It is estimated that about half of the people with autism will experience some form of social anxiety.
This is because social interaction can be hard for people who have autism, and the CSIs report says a significant number of people with ASD have difficulties in socializing.
For example, people who are on medication may be at a higher risk of social interaction difficulties.
The report also says that a lot of people who do ski with their friends can have trouble staying focused on what they are doing.
That can be frustrating for people like Sible.
He said that he thinks a lot about people like him.
“If you can ski and you have your friends and you want to share it with them, that’s great, but the fact of the matter is that we all have our challenges in life,” he said.
“We have our own things we have to deal with, and so we all need to take time to look at each other and figure out what’s best for our individual needs.”
The CSI also wants to get people on the ski slopes to know what to look for on the backcountry, and what to expect on the ice.
The organization says a lot has changed since the days of the “no helmet, no rules” rule, when a ski jump was not allowed.
“As our world has become more and more digital and mobile, it has allowed us to travel much farther,” said the CSRI president.
“And so it is really important to keep people on our side and not put ourselves in a position where we can’t be there for them if they need us.”
In addition to the general avalanche awareness campaign, the CSCI is also encouraging the industry by providing safety information for skiers who are looking to take a trip.
Sibleya says he is glad that his organization is doing what it can to get skiers off the slopes, and even though he has never skied before, he says he hopes that it will make a big difference for those who will.
“I think it will be good for the industry, for the snowmobile industry, and I hope it will keep going and help people who come to us for help to understand that they are part of the ski community,” he added.
Siby says he would like to see the industry get involved with the International Ski and Snowboard Federation’s ski safety training.
“You know, the last time I checked, there was a ski industry that did not even have the ability to have the training that they do now,” said Mr. SIB.
“They’re training the next generation of ski professionals.
We need to do something for them.
We are a young industry.
We can’t afford to be the next big thing.
We have to get our act together.”
The next report is due in February.
