Registration for World Snow Day closes on 15th December 2011 and the momentum that it has gained has been astonishing, particularly as this is only the inaugural year. On 22nd January 2012, World Snow Day will see over 130 events staged in over 30 different countries, however two of our events are much larger then they seem.
The Canadian Ski Patrol System (CSPS) was founded in 1941 and since then has been providing first aid services to 230 Alpine and Nordic areas around Canada. On World Snow Day, the CSPS will be holding their annual Injury Prevention and Safety Day across all ski hills they currently patrol. There will be various events held at these hills with an emphasis on promoting safe skiing and boarding. World Snow Day welcomes this nationwide initiative and encourages the Canadian World Snow Day participants to become involved and listen to the Ski Patrollers as these men and women are the ones who will be protecting and helping the children at the snow should they require it.
Our second enormous event takes place across all of Poland. The Polish Snow Sports Instructor's Association will be partnering with World Snow Day to launch an annual "SITN PZN open day" for free teaching and play. This event will take place on 22 January 2012 across the whole of Poland. The Association has 103 licensed Snow Sport Schools who will participate in this arrangement. Beside ski schools, individual ski instructors will also be involved in this action where ever they will be on slopes.
World Snow Day aims to give as many people as possible around the world the chance to Explore, Enjoy and Experience the snow. World Snow Day may has more than 130 events registered for its inaugural year so next time you are in the Event Locator on the website at www.world-snow-day.com have a close look at the events because some of these events are much larger then they seem.
