CCCSA business memberships are for Nordic resorts or partners, including retail, lodging, or Nordic-related businesses. Membership provides these businesses exposure in all CCCSA's marketing efforts, including the website, social media, e-newsletters, and more. Members meet semi-annually to network, plan and provide guidance for CCCSA initiatives.

Membership Benefits

Personal Service

We have retained the services of 10 Pound Gorilla to help us with our internet marketing strategies, social media, website development, grant writing, fundraising and to further promote the activities of this organization.

As a premium member, 10 Pound Gorilla will check in with you on a regular basis, throughout the season, to ensure your needs are being met and your messages are being communicated.


Our website has high visibility within search engines, social media and the Nordic sports world. Ongoing SEO is performed to ensure our website ranks high for keywords associated to cross country skiing, Nordic skiing and snowshoeing.

If you choose our premium membership, you will receive a full page dedicated to your Nordic center, ranch or club with a direct link to your website. Additionally, we will feature any and all events, news or special promotions you choose.

Event Promotion

If you choose our premium membership, the CCCSA will list all Nordic and non-Nordic events related to and provided by your organization on our website, social media venues and in our newsletters.


We believe identifying and connecting with the movers and shakers of our industry will help us spread our word more efficiently and quickly. We will try to identify sponsorships and relationships with like-minded organizations.

Also, our biannual meetings allow us to share experiences and trends in the Nordic world. We work in a spirit of cooperation to support Nordic skiing and snowshoeing programs and to promote Colorado as the premier places to enjoy Nordic sports.

Social Engagement

We leverage our community of Nordic enthusiasts to help spread the love of our sport. We will feature your resort in varies ways across our social media channels, email newsletter, blog posts, and more.


Currently we place our efforts online, as we find we can get more bang for our buck and direct people to our website with ease to ensure you receive the most exposure possible. With pay-per-click advertising, we can ensure our message in as many places as possible during prime ski season.

Additionally, we are members of the National Cross Country Ski Areas Association (CCSAA) with a direct link from their website to ours. You will find us advertising on various industry websites.
