New Board Members Selected

We are excited to announce two new volunteers have joined the Cannonsburg Challenged Ski Association's Board of Directors.

THERESA FLORIAN- This is Theresa's second time on the Board. She was an original member of the board back in 1989 and helped incorporate what was then, an informal group providing lessons to persons with disabilities, into the association that it is today. In 1999 Theresa left the Board to spend more time with her growing and active family. Currently Theresa is an Occupational Therapist with Early Childhood and Elementary Special Education for the GRPS system. Since her return in 2013, she has been active in developing and teaching our stand-up training program. Theresa is excited to re-join CCSA's Board and will play an important role in helping us improve and lead our program over the coming years. Welcome back Theresa!

JOSH SZYMANSKI- Josh, a lifelong skier, is a former ski instructor and ski patroller. He joined CCSA in 2010 and quickly established himself as a key instructor in our sit down program. Josh is an engineer and is currently the Business Develpment Director for Owen Ames Kimball Company of Grand Rapids. He is also actively involved with the Michigan Society of Professional Engineers and the Grand Rapids Economic Club. When he isn't at work or helping us out at Cannonsburg he stays busy with his his wife and two young children. Josh has a passion to help individuals with disabilities get out on hills at Cannonsburg and enjoy the sport of downhill skiing. We are looking forward to Josh's contributions and leadership over the coming years.    























Welcome to

Each year, Cannonsburg Challenged Ski Association (CCSA) provides lessons and the use of adaptive downhill ski equipment to people with disabilities in West Michigan at the Cannonsburg Ski Area. We are a non-profit (501C3) corporation, a chapter of Disabled Sports USA, and completely staffed by unpaid volunteers.

By developing the unique abilities of each skier, we foster a level of self confidence that carries over into other aspects of life. Participants learn to do things they thought were impossible. And if that's the case, we've done our job!

It's United Way time!
