This magazine will provide you with the information you need to find like-minded friends who ski and board, while exploring new places and fun adventures with members of the Far West Ski Association. The Far West Ski Association (FWSA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization that is one of the country's largest ski associations. Our 11 member councils represent skiers and boarders in the 13 western states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. In California, there are six councils: Bay Area, Central, Inland, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego. Arizona council is based in Phoenix, Intermountain is based in Boise, New Mexico is based in Albuquerque, Northwest is in Portland and Sierra is located in Reno. If your ski club is affiliated with one of these councils, you are a member of FWSA! If you like snowsports, you have come to the right place! 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 just about any other fun activity you can think of. FWSA and its member clubs and councils are the place to join with other, active social people, and get discounted rates for your favorite event. You can visit our website at www.fwsa.org, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to learn more about our growing and vibrant organization. Far West Ski Association is offering several fabulous trips during the 2014 calendar year. We kick off the year with our FWSA Ski Week during the week of January 25 - February 1 where we ski and have fun in Beaver Creek, Colorado. If you are looking for a shorter ski trip, we will be traveling to the Davis Area, Utah, from February 22 - 27 for our FWSA Mini Ski Week to ski Snowbasin. If you are interested in international travel, from March 6 - 23, we are off to Zermatt, Switzerland, followed by an optional extension to Spain. But, that's not all! We recently returned from a fun and successful dive trip to Belize, and we will set sail from November 9-16, 2013 to explore the Caribbean on the cruise ship The Norwegian Epic. In the fall of 2014, we will be venturing to the continent of Africa to go on safari and visit Victoria Falls. You can be a part of all of this, and more, by joining a FWSA member club and council. Or, you can become a direct memeber of the Association. See page 10. In addition, our member clubs and councils offer their own trips and activities, so you can find friends and visit new places whenever you are ready to go. So join us! From June 12-15, 2014, we will host our 82nd Annual Far West Ski Association Convention in Bend, Oregon. Our Convention will have special guests, a silent auction and travel expo, and lots of optional activities. These will include hiking, biking, golfing and our not to be missed Pub Crawl. On Saturday night, we will have music and dancing; and an Awards Banquet to recognize outstanding achievements in snowsports. In addition to all the fun, we host a Snowsports Leadership Academy where we offer seminars in ski club leadership and management, safety, and snowsports trends. We also host a Public Affairs Panel with special guest speakers that are not to be missed! This fantastic weekend of events will be hosted by Northwest Ski Club Council. Put it on your calendar now! Far West Ski Foundation is a public benefit corporation, a nonprofit and tax exempt organization under IRS category 501(c)(3).
