There are many benefits to membership, whether it is through your ski club or as a direct
member. Besides the extensive world-wide travel opportunitys, members can participate in the
annual FWSA Convention held in different locations throughout the west. At the Convention,
there is a Travel Expo where attendees can meet with resort representatives who can provide
information about their resorts for future trip planning. It is a wonderful way to get
individual attention to have your questions answered. Learn about recent resort improvements, lodging opportunities, closest airports, shuttles, the best trails to ski or board for your
ability levels, favorite restaurants not to be missed, and anything important to you or your
group. A club delegate speaks with Michael Green and Hannah DeGoey from Mammoth
Mountain at the 2013 FWSA Convention Travel Expo. photo by Sigrid Noack

Far West Ski Association has approximately 50,000 members in 13 western states. It is
the umbrella organization over 11 councils. Within the councils, there are approximately 165
ski clubs. Membership in the Far West Ski Association has so many benefits. The varied programs offered are found in articles written by officers of the Association, committee chairmen,
and council presidents, included in this issue of the Far West Skier's Guide. You will have a great
time thinking of all different ways you can enjoy snowsports.
If you are already a member of a council club, you are automatically a member of the Far
West Ski Association. The FWSA has a member benefits program, as do councils and clubs.
These include discounts on ski equipment, lodging at ski resorts, and even discounts at certain
restaurants in the ski areas. All you have to do is show your FWSA Membership Card, which
is provided by your ski club. There aren't any nicer people than those who join clubs, and
members become a close-knit community. With summer and winter activities that go beyond
snowsports, you can have a very active life just belonging to a club. Many clubs offer kayaking,
hiking, biking, and water skiing, to name just a few fun additional activities.
Another benefit to joining a club is that members carpool together or charter buses so
you don't need to drive to a ski area by yourself. This doesn't just include weekend trips but
mid-week skiing, as well. Many ski clubs belong to a race league, and there are also junior races
for children. If you are looking for a great organization to join, a snowsports club should be one
of your first considerations. Refer to the Club Section (starting on page 66) of this issue of the
Far West Skier's Guide for a local club near where you live. Club listings are by council.
Direct membership in the Far West Ski Association is available for those who have relocated, and for those nationwide who wish to participate in Far West travel and other organizational opportunities. Simply copy and fill out the application on the top left on this page and
mail it in along with the membership fee. L
