Sabastian Diaz / Sabastian Diaz Photography As technology advances, the communications program at FWSA is moving forward as well, bringing you closer to exciting trips and travel, to the snowsports world, and to your friends. The past year saw the release of a brandnew website, much easier to navigate, and with more and better content. If you have not yet seen www.fwsa.org in the past year, you should stop by soon. The new website is topped by an extensive menu of content, with a feature article, a calendar of upcoming events and travel, and links to great publications on the front page. It is constantly being updated with fresh material. Stop by often! The next step for the website will be to add more interactive features, allowing you to create your own login, and bringing you access to members-only capabilities. We will be rolling out these features over the coming @??????????? Skiing Around the World: Volume II by Jimmy Petterson Currently in Production Jimmy Petterson's award-winning seminal work, Skiing Around the World was published in 2005 and sold out in 2008. In the eight years since it first hit the shelves, Jimmy has been working on Volume Two of his life's work. At this point, he has skied in a total of 69 countries, and despite a broken neck last year that laid him low for a while, he is heading to Antarctica in November to gather material for the new book. As with his first book, Skiing Around the World: Volume II will take skiers to some of the most famous ski resorts of the world, along with obscure destinations that most people have never heard of. The new book will cover such classic resorts as Kitzbühel, La Plagne, Deer Valley, Aspen, Mammoth, Courmayeur, Davos, Grindelwald, Wengen, Ischgl, and Voss, but it will also take skiers to unusual ski destinations in Armenia, South Africa, Lesotho, Israel, Russia, the Ukraine, Scotland, India, Venezuela, and much more. Simultaneously with the release of the new book will come a longawaited second printing of Volume One. The books will be available to buy individually or as a set. Jimmy hopes to have the book finished in autumn of 2015.
