Far West Skier's Guide 2013-2014 - (Page 7)

is through the Foundation that we work to support the Athletic Scholarship Program, Skier Rehabilitation Program, Snowsports History Program, and Women's Ski Jumping. The Foundation is growing, and we will continue to work hard to make each year more successful than the last. We appreciate all of our generous donors who have made the Foundation strong. It is with anticipation that we enter an Olympic year, with the Sochi Winter Olympics to be held February 7-23, 2014. Our U.S. Ski Team is stronger than ever. The Far West Ski Association and Far West Ski Foundation have generated funds and support not only for junior racers and future Olympians, but also for Women's Ski Jumping USA. We will especially feel a great sense of pride as we watch this team compete in their first-ever Winter Olympics. FWSA has a wonderful team of volunteers who contribute countless hours of time and expertise to our organization. In addition, we could not have the outstanding level of success that we achieve year after year, without the generosity and support of our industry partners and sponsors. Thank you for all you do on behalf of FWSA! Great things are happening at Far West Ski Association, and I look forward to seeing you soon, on the slopes or at our 82nd Annual Far West Ski Association Convention in Bend, Oregon next June!
