Covid-19 Updates

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve in Canada, we are all affected and facing very unique and challenging times. During these difficult times, Canada Snowboard is committed most importantly to the health and well-being of our Snowboard Community.

The ability to meet the government guidelines is not the only consideration to take into account prior to resuming desired Snowboard related activities.  We share your desire to get back to shredding, however, we strongly encourage all clubs and organizers to thoroughly understand the guidelines and create their own detailed and robust plans before resuming.

Canada Snowboard continues to work closely with our Chief Medical Officer, Sport and Funding Partners, and Local and Federal Government and Health Authorities to carefully monitor the situation. We encourage all our member organizations to do the same, and remain informed of the COVID-19 situation through regular updates from health authorities and other governing agencies in their jurisdiction. 

The Canada Snowboard office, located in Vancouver, is currently closed. All staff are working remotely and accessible via email. 

We will continue to use this page, and its associated links, to keep our members updated on the latest COVID-19 information we receive and later on the season to keep you updated on event cancellations and postponements. Please note at this stage Canada Snowboard, in close relationship with our PTSAs, are continually amending our planning for what our 2020/2021 season looks like but we can't wait to all get back on the snow.
