IITHE NORTH AMERICAN
TRAVEL PROGRAM
by Nancy Ellis
Vice President - North American Travel, FWSA
The Far West Ski Association Travel Program offers trips for ski club and direct members to destinations in North
America, Canada, and U.S. territories. Our Annual Ski Week is extremely popular, offering activities for skiers/boarders and
non-skiers. We have a week of skiing/boarding, parties with dancing, racing, and opportunities for shopping and winter
activities in the area. Far West Ski Association councils sell the trip and plan their own activities, as well. This is a great
opportunity to meet people from your council, enjoy one of the many ski resorts in the country, and have a lot of fun! We will
be going to Aspen Snowmass Resort January 29 - February 5, 2022. Our destination will be Jackson Hole Resort January
21 - 28, 2023. Recent Ski Weeks include: Sun Valley, Big Sky, Steamboat, Banff, Breckenridge, Telluride, Whistler, Beaver
Creek, Jackson Hole, and Keystone.
We also offer a second ski trip in March which is immensely popular - the Mini Ski Trip. This is a 5-day late spring
trip. It doesn't include as many planned activities to keep the trip more affordable. Participants have flexibility to explore the
area on their own or participate in group activities. This year, we will be going to Zermatt Utah Resort & Spa in Midway,
Utah, March 20-25, 2022. Past trips have been to Winter Park, Mt. Bachelor, Snowbasin, Whitefish, Crested Butte, Sun
Peaks, and Alyeska.
The North American Travel program also plans adventure trips every two years that are non-ski trips. This year, we will
take an Alaska Cruise through the inside passage with a Tour to Fairbanks and Denali National Park. This trip is planned
for June 21-July 2, 2022, and participants have the option to do the entire trip or do the cruise or land trip separately. Past
adventure trips have been a Windjammer Cruise aboard the Vela, exploring the fabulous British Virgin Islands, summer
trips to Mammoth Lakes with fishing, kayaking, and bike riding; Panama Canal Cruise; Caribbean Cruise to the U.S. Virgin
Islands, Bahamas, and St. Maarten; a Mississippi Steamboat Cruise and New Orleans trip, and a trip to see the start of the
Iditarod in Anchorage, Alaska. Check the Far West Ski Association website www.fwsa.org for a listing of our trips, and how
you can sign up. Looking forward to seeing you on one of our trips!

The FWSA 2021 Ski Week Destination was Sun Valley, Idaho.
Skiing and snowboarding are basically activities that should still be achievable as well as safe despite the ongoing
threat of the COVID-19 Pandemic. These sports typically take place outdoors. Face coverings are standard apparel, and
participants are naturally separated as they travel down the trails. Members on this Ski Week followed the rules on
and off the slopes and ice rink. Even the time in the Lodge was safely planned. All were thankful to get back to their
favorite winter activity. Sun Valley was great! Lodge photo - Stuart Brown / Rink photo - Kirk Miles; both from Arizona Ski Council
were not permitted. We held our picnic
and banquet as take out events and had
a great time with an outside ice skating
party.
Those that attended had a good
time skiing and boarding, enjoyed the
great takeout food menu, and were
thrilled to have indoor dining at Sun Valley
Resort and Ketchum restaurants.
Thank you to Shure Sports who donated
One hundred Far West Ski Association
members went on our North American
Ski Week to Sun Valley Resort in
Idaho January 30 - February 6, 2021. We
feel fortunate to have been able to go on
our trip as COVID-19 prevented many ski
areas from accommodating group travel.
It wasn't our typical trip with a Welcome
Party and Banquet as group inside events
two ski jackets for the Athletic Scholarship
raffle. The lucky winners were
Katie Mauldin, Sierra Council, and
Becky Berry, Arizona Council. I appreciate
the support and assistance of Kevin
Bracken, Sun Valley Resort, and Sandy
Gaudette and Mike Agnew, Winter Ski
& Sports, in planning and organizing a
COVID safe trip for our participants!
