THE 2000s - The Scholarship Program
In 2004, FWSA resumed its involvement with sanctioned competition with the initiative launched
by Tucker Hoffman of providing some support for a junior racer. It started with two racers. With this
modest beginning, the Association and its sister Far West Ski Foundation has awarded 199 athletic
scholarships to 117 different athletes for a total of $165,000. Four scholarship recipients have World
Cup starts: Lila Lapanja (Diamond Peak/US Ski Team), AJ Hurt (Squaw Valley/US Ski Team), Foreste
Peterson (Squaw Valley/US Ski Team), and Garrett Driller (Squaw Valley). Several other scholarship
recipients have made the US Ski Team, but had no World Cup starts.
THE 2000s - The Far West Ski Foundation
Four FWSA members completed the management transfer in 2009 of the Far West Ski
Foundation to serve as the fund raising sister organization focused primarily on the Scholarships
program of the Association. The original four - Alan Christian, John Reinhardt,
Richard Shawkey, and John Watson - have been joined by others and the roster is open
for new individuals who support the four missions of the Foundation: scholarships for
junior racers,support to schools providing on snow rehabilitation, preservation and
education and from time to time support to international competition. The latter
mission is the original purpose of the Foundation when it was established in 1964.
WHAT'S NEXT?
The Association faces a challenging future in 2020 because of the rapid evolution and
consolidation of the ski industry. The consolidation movement impacted participation by individual
resorts in the FWSA's industry partnership programs. The current Pandemic forced an early closure
of the ski season, and brought changes to resort summer programs. But, if history has taught us
anything, the Far West Ski Association and the snowsports industry will continue to adjust to
challenges and emerge even stronger in an ever changing sport. n
