The Silent Auction features an opportunity to bid on more than $100,000 worth of great deals on ski, sport and adventure packages, plus sports equipment! There is no admission charge for the FWSA Silent Auction and it includes a complimentary drink. The Silent Auction is open to the general public, and we encourage the Bend and Redmond communities to take part in this event! On Saturday Morning there is a Travel Expo where approximately 100 resort representatives and tour operators will be available for one-on-one meetings to discuss planning your group's next ski or adventure trip. Snowsport celebrities will be featured at the afternoon Multi-Media Presentation. Public Affairs and other FWSA programs will have informational panels both in the morning and afternoon. Convention means delegates come to learn about skiing! You can do just this by partaking in the Snowsports Leadership Academy. These sessions take place on Saturday and this year we'll be focusing on ski equipment tuning and safety. Admission to the FWSA Leadership Academy sessions are included as part of the package for all Full Package Delegates, and is available in a Saturday Only Package to the general public. Saturday night is black tie / shorts to celebrate the Volcanic Paradise. This will include the FWSA Awards Banquet and Dance. Serv- ice awards and recognitions will be given to many of our most honored volunteers and industry partners. After the dinner and our short presentation of awards get ready for some serious dancing! All this fun and activity will be followed on Sunday morning with the business meeting of FWSA. Delegates participate in election of officers, by-laws and resolutions are voted on, and all other FWSA business is addressed. The morning's General Session is all planned around a Sunday Brunch.

Our last two Conventions hosted by San Diego Council were in Palm Springs. Members are thrilled to have the Convention at home. The Town and Country Resort has been family-owned and operated since 1953. The hotel is rich in history, charm and character, with a tradition of hospitality and service. It is the essence of a San Diego resort style experience of gardens with over 3,000 blooming rose bushes, more than 2,500 arching palm trees and walkways located on 32 lushly-landscaped acres in the heart of San Diego's Mission Valley. Offering 1,000 spacious guest rooms and suites, the Town and Country provides a selection of accommodations in one of the high-rise towers, or a charming two story garden bungalow. It features four restaurants from casual to fine dining, lounges, three swimming pools and over-sized whirlpool. Indulge yourself at the The Bella Tosca European Day Spa, Salon and Fitness Center. Bella Tosca is a luxurious 14,000 square foot Mediterraneanstyle spa, complete with a yoga room, meditation room and state of the art fitness equipment. For those that like to visit the local attractions, the San Diego light-rail trolley system stops on the property for easy travel to many popular San Diego sites.
