Canada West Competitor Pass
The Canada West Ski Areas Association believes that deserving young ski and snowboard athletes should be given all the support possible to reach their goal to one day represent Canada in Olympic Games, World Championships or World Cups. For this reason CWSAA created the ALL AREAS COMPETITOR PASS to facilitate eligible athletes access to participating CWSAA ski areas for the purpose of training and competition. All athletes must understand that the use of the competitor Pass is a privilege that carries with it the responsibility to conduct themselves in a sportsman like fashion, showing leadership to their fellow athletes. An athlete who is disciplined for pass infractions or other disciplinary issues at a host ski area, such as breach of the Alpine Responsibility Code or other irresponsible behaviour, or who has received sanctions from their provincial sport organization will automatically be disqualified from the All Area Competitor Pass Program.
All relevant 2016-17 CWSAA information and application documents are posted below. All FIS athletes need to submit the application form, printed and signed in colour as well as a digital photo, to their club when submitting their FIS registration. Please review all information carefully prior to submission. Applications are due by Friday August 19th, 2016 at 4pm MST.
Please note that an application does not guarantee a pass, however must be completed in order to be eligible for a pass. This is an application and each province and discipline is allowed a quota from the Canada West Ski Areas Association. In past years, Alberta Alpine has received enough passes for all FIS athletes who compete full time with Alberta clubs.
The Competitor Pass may only be used by the passholder named on the pass. The pass is not transferable and will be revoked for misuse. Athletes who discontinue regularly scheduled training programs or competitions, except due to injury, must return the Competitor Pass to their respective provincial sport organization. A pro-rated refund will be provided.
In the case of a lost pass, the athlete should contact Member Services at Alberta Alpine as soon as possible to report the loss. All Western Canadian Ski Areas will be notified and a new pass will be issued to the athlete. A $100 administrative charge will be applied to replace a lost pass.
