Welcome to your education vacation.

Created in the early 1960s, SkiCE is one of CVMA’s longest running continuing education programs.

With education in the early morning and afternoon, attendees have plenty of time to hit the slopes, play in the snow, or just enjoy some free time. SkiCE offers veterinarians and technicians quality continuing education credit as well as a family-friendly experience at one of the world’s premier ski resorts.
