Updated Covid19 Protocols for the 2021- 2022 Season

Dear Members,

As Covid19 continues to change and evolve, AHS has been updating its protocols and restrictions to meet the new challenges.

AHS Protocols

AHS has terminated the REP program as of 11:59 pm February 8th, 2022.

Covid19 Protocols for Alberta Alpine sanctioned races.

With the ending of the REP program AASA will no longer require proof of vaccinations to participate in Alberta Alpine sanctioned events for all ages.

AASA requires all members to follow the AHS Covid19 current protocols, along with the Covid19 protocols at both your local ski resort and any ski resorts that you plan to visit this season. Ski resorts may have enhanced protocols that go beyond what AHS has put in place, and this needs to be followed.

If you are traveling to another province or internationally, please contact their local health authority on what Covid19 protocols they have in place.

AASA strongly recommends that everyone who is eligible, get their double dose of the vaccination as well as getting a booster if eligible. It is very important that all coaches, officials, and volunteers are vaccinated not only to protect the community but also to ensure their jobs can be done safely.

Accepted Covid19 Vaccines in Canada.
• Pfizer-BioNTech (Comirnaty, tozinameran, BNT162b2)
• Moderna (Spikevax, mRNA-1273)
• AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD (ChAdOx1-S, Vaxzevria, AZD1222)
• Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (Ad26.COV2.S)

The Covid19 pandemic has shown us all that it is always changing, and protocols will need to change with it.

If you have any questions, please give me a call. Best regards,

Patrick Gillespie
President of Alberta Alpine Ski Association
