lier sites improved with upski capability. FWSA's Competition Committees were busy scheduling
and planning events and qualifying and selecting officials. Competition was a primary focus of the
organization from its beginning. It provided sanctioned events for aspiring racers and attracted more
attention to skiing. The main objective of competition programs, its officials and coaches, was and is
to prepare racers for regional, national and international races.
Far West worked to standardize ski instruction and certification of instructors. Membership
grew well past 80 clubs. A professional staff was authorized by the delegates to the 1946 annual
meeting. Dues paying clubs in the Far West Ski Association (FWSA) (the name was changed in 1947 from
CSA) grew to 80 by 1956.
The Association got deeply involved in its area development mission. It was the only regional
association with area development as an integral part of its organization. Ski area development
necessarily involved the use of public lands in California and that meant a partnership with the
US Forest Service. Owing in large part to the position of FWSA and its members, the Forest Service
accepted concepts for skiing on San Gorgonio; at least three plans were put forward from the 1930s
until it went into Wilderness classification in 1964. In 1949, the US Forest Service solicited ideas for
the development of Mineral King. Mineral King had been cited by many who had explored it as
having great potential for skiing. One of those explorers was the future Executive Director of the
Sierra Club. The proposal by Disney for Mineral King was submitted to the US Forest Service in
1965.
