2017-2018 Far West Skier's Guide - 7

Our Association has established important relationships with the National Ski
Council Federation (NSCF), United States Ski
& Snowboard Association (USSA), United
States Ski Team, Women's Ski Jumping USA,
National Forest Service, International Ski History Association (ISHA), North American
Snowsports Journalists Association (NASJA),
and Snowsport Industries Association (SIA).
We are strong supporters of the National Ski
Areas Association (NSAA) Environmental
Charter and have endorsed their "Sustainable
Slopes" objectives. Our goal is to effectively
represent the interests of all our members and
the snowsports public.
Our 86th Annual FWSA Snowsports
Convention will be held June 7 - 10, 2018, at
the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, Reno, Nevada.
The fun begins on Thursday, June 7, with two
optional events, kayaking during the day and
our annual Pub Crawl in the evening. Friday
events will include the 12th Annual Michael
German Memorial Golf Tournament, hiking
along the shores of Lake Tahoe, a spa day, and
a pool party.
Our Convention will have special guests,
a keynote speaker, the annual Silent Auction
and Travel Expo. The Silent Auction on Fri-

day evening is always a popular event where
participants can buy terrific trips, often at
much less than market value. The Travel
Expo on Saturday gives participants a chance
to meet ski industry representatives to learn
more about their ski areas so our members
can plan trips for the next year. We will host
another Snowsports Leadership Academy
with seminars about club leadership and management, safety and snowsport trends. Our
Public Affairs panel will have guest speakers
who will provide valuable information on issues affecting all skiers. Our Awards Banquet
on Saturday night will have music, dancing
and awards to recognize outstanding achievements in snowsports. This fantastic weekend
of events is co-hosted by the Bay Area Snow
Sports Council and Sierra League & Council,
so save the dates and make your reservations
at the Atlantis soon. All details will be posted
on the FWSA website. I hope to see you there.
FWSA has a working relationship with
the Far West Ski Foundation, a nonprofit,
charitable organization that is tax exempt
under IRS Section 501(c)(3). We work with
the Foundation to support our Athletic Scholarship Program, Skier Rehabilitation Program,

Snowsports History Program, and Women's
Olympic Ski Jumping. The Foundation is
growing and we will continue to work hard
to make each year more successful than the
last. We thank all of you who have made generous donations to the Foundation. Your contributions qualify as an itemized tax
deduction. More information is available at
http://farwestskifoundation.org/.
I would also like to thank the many volunteers in our clubs who contribute countless
hours of time and expertise to their clubs,
councils and FWSA. We have a terrific Board
of Directors and Committee Chairs. They are
all volunteers who have come up through the
ranks as volunteers in their clubs and councils. Also, we could not maintain the outstanding level of success, year after year,
without the generosity and support of our industry partners and sponsors. Thank you for
all you do on behalf of FWSA!
To all of you, have a fun ski season and
stay safe. I look forward to seeing you on the
slopes, on some of our trips, and at our 86th
Annual Far West Ski Association Convention
in Reno, Nevada next June. ss
