Clare Magee became a XC ski instructor in 1973, when this certification was still under the auspices of Canadian Ski Instructors Association. He was certified by Heinz Niederhauser (co-founder of CANSI in 1976). Clare’s influence on Nordic skiers, instructors and coaches is still felt today. More words about this influence can be found below - from Cheri Doman (Mike’s widow, on right) and Peter Rasberry (his longtime friend).
