founded on October 7, 1930 at the Palace Hotel
in San Francisco. Although we could not conduct our celebration in San Francisco as
planned, John Watson, our 90th Anniversary
Committee Chair, with a large group of contributors and guest authors, compiled an historic
90th Anniversary Commemorative Booklet, published by Leigh Gieringer. Jane Wyckoff was
the managing editor. This Booklet is available
for purchase through our website at
www.fwsa.org, and is also a Digital Insert in
this issue of the Far West Skier's Guide.
Our councils offer recreational ski racing sanctioned by the Far West Racing Association (FWRA). Since we use a handicapping system for our racers, they are
grouped with other racers in age groups who
have similar racing skills. It allows members
of all abilities to have fun and be competitive
within their racing class. Recreational racing
is a great way to improve your skiing techniques.
FWSA has established important relationships with the National Ski Council Federation (NSCF), National Forest Service
(NSF), International Ski History Association
(ISHA), United States Ski & Snowboard
(USSA), the United States Ski Team,
Women's Ski Jumping USA, North American
Snowsports Journalists Association (NASJA)
and Snowsports Industries America (SIA).
We are strong supporters of the National Ski
Areas Association (NSAA) Environmental
Charter and have endorsed their " Sustainable Slopes " objectives. We are active participants in the informal and bipartisan Congressional Ski & Snowboard Caucus. Our
goal is to effectively represent the interest of
all our members and the snowsports public.
The Far West Ski Association is one of
many snowsports organizations who will continue to educate and inform our membership
in its support of the call to end racial injustice
and inequity. Industry leaders have been conducting a variety of frank and open conversations with their memberships through
webinars and workshops. The goal has been
to examine ways to create a more inclusive
winter community. They have included a historical perspective of how we got to where we
are today, and to develop short and long term
goals for the organization. The FWSA Board
of Directors included this topic at its July Meeting. You will find several articles of interest in
this publication addressing the issue of diversity
in snowsports and in our organization.
We will host our 88th Annual FWSA
Snowsports Convention in San Diego, CA at
the Marriott Mission Valley, June 10 - 13,
2021. The fun will begin with activities starting on Thursday, with a Sail around the San
Diego Harbor, Bike Ride by the Beach, and

the Taste of San Diego Pub Crawl. This is
a great way for the ski industry and delegates to meet and greet on an informal
basis. On Friday, events will include the
14th Annual Michael German Memorial
Golf Tournament, a San Diego Trolley Tour
La Jolla/Mt. Soledad Memorial, Aqua Adventures, or other activities unique to the
area. After the Friday optional activities,
there will be a Pool Party followed by an
all club's Happy Hour, then the Annual Silent Auction and Snowports Show which
is open to the public. Participants will have
the opportunity to bid on terrific ski and adventure packages. Saturday begins with a
Travel Expo, the Snowsports Leadership
Academy and Public Affairs Panels. There
will be an Awards Luncheon, a Keynote
Presentation, Cocktail Party and Awards
Dinner and Dance. The final day for the
Convention is on Sunday where elections,
club and council awards, and a brunch will
end the convention.
FWSA has a working relationship
with the Far West Ski Foundation (FWSF),
a nonprofit charitable organization that is
tax exempt under IRS Code Section 501(c)
(3). We work with the Foundation to support our Athletic Scholarship Program,
Adaptive Sports and Skier Rehabilitation
Program, Fly Girls - Women's Olympic Ski
Jumping, and Preserving the Legacy - Ski
History Program. The Foundation continues to grow, and we will continue to
work hard to make each year more successful than the last. We thank all of you who
have made generous donations to the FWSF.
We have an outstanding Board of Directors, Trustees, Committee Chairs and
Committee Volunteers who make an exceptional team and are dedicated and committed to making our Association the
success that it is year after year. With our
strong working relationship with our Industry Partners, these volunteers have come up
through the ranks in their clubs, councils
and the Association and have a ton of
knowledge and history with the FWSA. I
would like to thank all the volunteers for
all they do for our organization.
I encourage everyone to check out
www.fwsa.org where you can find information about FWSA's future events, travel
plans, convention, member benefits and
much more.
I look forward to seeing you on the
slopes, in my travels and/or at our 88th Annual Far West Ski Association Convention
in San Diego. To all of you, have a fun filled
season on the slopes and in your travels.
Stay safe, stay healthy and have fun. ss
