FWSA:
Your Best Option for Snowsports,

G

Travel & So Much More!
by Steve Coxen
President, FWSA

reetings and welcome
to the 30th edition of the Far
West Skier's Guide. This magazine is the annual publication of the Far West Ski Association (FWSA). It will
provide you with information
to plan travel to new places,
and introduce you to many
choices for fun adventures,
and help you find likeminded friends who enjoy
skiing, boarding and many
other recreational activities.
FWSA was founded in 1930. Our mission is to develop and provide benefits for all
affiliated ski clubs and members. In doing so,
FWSA has benefited all skiers. We are a nonprofit, volunteer organization that is one of the
largest ski associations in the U.S. Our nine
member councils represent skiers and boarders in 12 western states including Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho,
Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Our clubs have over
50,000 members. If your club is affiliated with
one of our councils, you are a member of
FWSA. We welcome all snowsport enthusiasts, young and old, and we encourage participation in all snowsports. Our member clubs
have active year round social and recreational
events including ski trips, recreational ski racing, water skiing, hiking, river rafting, dinners,
theater, cruises, diving, biking, softball, wine
tasting, camping, parties and more. Many of
our activities welcome families and children.
Visit our website at www.fwsa.org or follow
up on our Facebook page to learn more about
our organization.
Far West Ski Association is offering several exciting ski trips in North America during
the 2018 calendar year. Our annual FWSA
Ski Week is our kickoff event for the year. For
one week, February 3 - 10, 2018 our members
will ski and have fun in Banff, Alberta,
Canada. We offer a full week of skiing, racing,
parties and dinners.
Our second trip is a special once-in-a-life-

time trip to the Alaska Iditarod and skiing at Alyeska,
February 25 - March 4, 2018.
Information about each of
these trips is available on
our website on the North
American Travel page and
in the travel section on the
following pages.
FWSA is also offering
several international trips in
2018. We are taking a group
of Far West skiers on a fabulous ski trip to Brides les
Bain - Les Trois Vallées, France, March 4 11, 2018. Participants can extend their stay
with a post trip to Lyon, Beaune and Paris,
March 11 - 18, 2018. If you are only interested in the Lyon, Beaune and Paris travel,
you can sign up for it as a "stand alone" trip.
Plans are underway for another dive
trip in September, 2018. We have a Windjammer sailing trip in the British Virgin Islands
in May, 2019 and other trips in the planning
stages for 2019 and 2020. You can take part
in all of this, and more, by joining a FWSA
member club or joining as a FWSA direct
member.
In addition to our trips, our member
clubs and councils offer their own trips and
activities. You have many opportunities to
visit new places with other active social people whenever you're ready. Don't wait!
Many of our member councils offer
recreational ski racing sanctioned by the Far
West Racing Association (FWRA). Racers
are classified by age and ability level so
everyone can have fun and be competitive in
their class. Recreational racing is a great
way to improve your skiing. The FWRA
Championships are held at the end of the
race season. The FWRA Championships
will be held at Mammoth Mountain, April 6
- 8, 2018. Everyone from FWSA is invited to
come and have fun. All Far West members
can take advantage of the discounted lift tickets and lodging specials that weekend, plus
the Silent Auction on Saturday afternoon.
