In memory of Gary MacKinnon and in recognition of David Zerr for their hard work, dedication and support of the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance and the Canadian Adaptive Snowsports.
Thank you for applying for the 2022 CADS Ski & Snowboard Festival GroFund Bursary.
There is $350.00 available for this bursary for either a CADS Student or a CADS Instructor.
My son Jamie participates in CADS because he needs a little extra help on the hill. CADS has helped him get past the challenges of autism and find freedom and success on the hill. CADS has been a life changer not only for Jamie, but for our whole family!Jamie's Mom
I loved getting to meet all sorts of different people, and getting to know my CADS Ski Instructors at Festival. They were so kind, helpful, and so much fun to be around. Now... let’s talk about that award. Canadian Skier of the year! Never in a million years did I think I would receive an award like that in my life. I still struggle to wrap my mind around it! It was a great honor, and certainly a huge surprise.Kate Gibbs
The 'all inclusive nature' of the CADS organization (Instructors, volunteers, athletes and families) are diverse, and we truly felt that all were inclusive. There seemed to be no judgement of others. This is something most groups strive for, but as you know rarely can achieve.Karen and Brad Benoit
