The Far West Ski Association Turns 90 - 24

Bob Carter, President of the Pacific Northwest Ski
Association (PNSA) and Pat Fuller (Cascade Ski Club)
who invited representatives of all the known ski
clubs in existence in Portland to the annual meeting
of the PNSA. This resulted in the organization in
1979 of the Portland Area Ski Club Council
(PASCC). The group decided to become the " voice
of the skiers " to provide a united front to public issues.
In 1982, the council established its status with the
Internal Revenue Service as a nonprofit association
incorporated under the laws of the state of Oregon.
Due to the continuing expansion of PASCC with
clubs from the state of Washington, the name was
changed to Northwest Ski Club Council in 1998 to
better represent the true nature of its membership
and influence. NWSCC has grown to 25 ski and
snowboard clubs, and has a unique charitable associate
program with 13 associate members. The objectives
of NWSCC remain those of PASCC:
n Providing a means of communication
among all of the ski community
n Facilitating the resolution of political
issues of concern to skiers
n Maintaining a resource of information
concerning club operations, political issues,
ski education, etc.
n Providing economic benefits to its
member clubs

Sierra Council
The Sierra Council has a long history dating
back to the early 1970s. But, it has its beginning as
another organization: Sierra Ski Racing League
and it was initiated by an import from Southern
Council - Dan Halcomb from the Wailers Ski Club
in Los Angeles. He started his long sequence of actions
in 1981-82, founding the Reno Ski and Recreation
Club (later changed to the Fagowees) and the
Sierra Racing League. Then, Halcomb went west
to Sacramento to found a Fagowees there. Today,
the League exists concurrently with the FWSA
Sierra Council, accepted as a council in 2002.
Barbara Bryant led the way to becoming a
council, an original FWSA objective since 1970.
Intermountain Ski Council
The idea of a ski council in the Utah area was
hatched in the fall of 2006 when Randy Lew
(FWSA President) and Mike Sanford (FWSA Past President),
met with representatives of Idaho Falls Ski
Club, Pocatello Ski Association, and Hill AFB Ski
Club at the National Ski Council Federation (NSCF)
meeting in Layton, Utah. They were told that while
FWSA would help them, it was up to them to do
the work.
Joe Coles with the Layton Convention & VisWith
a vision of international
skiing, the club in the 1950s
started chartering flights to
Europe for its members and
future Olympians. These were
precursors to FWSA's early
charter flights. Celebrate
skiers all over the world
as one family.
itors Bureau, set up the first organizational meeting
chaired by Randy Lew in March 2007 at the Hilton
Garden Suites in Layton, Utah. Present were representatives
from Idaho Falls Ski Club, Pocatello Ski
Association, Hill AFB Ski Club, Weber State Ski
Club, and Park City Mountain Sports Club. Randy
presented examples of council by-laws, and legal
forms for Utah and Idaho, then led the clubs thru
discussions of their similar interests which they
could use to develop the new council.
The second organizational meeting was held in
24 FWSA 90th Anniversary Booklet / 1930 - 2020
June, 2007. Mark Larsen (Idaho Falls Ski Club) ran
the meeting and led the cefforts to develop all the
legal documents (to which the group unanimously agreed).
Mark was elected President of the new organization
and then led the efforts to get all the legal documents
filed and new by-laws adopted by the organizing
committee.
The Intermountain Ski Council (ISC) was incorporated
in the State of Idaho. On December 1,
2007 Intermountain Ski Council was accepted by
the FWSA Board of Directors, at the Cliff Lodge
in Snowbird, Utah, as the then 11th council of
FWSA (New Mexico then inactive) with five (5) organizing
clubs in Idaho and Utah.
National Brotherhood of Skiers -
Western Region
The National Brotherhood of Skiers - Western
Region, was accepted as the 10th ski council of
FWSA in 2018, has had clubs in California, Nevada,
Oregon, Washington and Arizona. The National
Brotherhood of Skiers, a non-profit organization,
is also one of the largest ski organizations
in the country.
The NBS was formed in 1974 by 13 ski clubs
across the country and now boasts a membership
of over 50 clubs representing nearly 50 cities with
a membership of over 3,000 skiers, snowboarders,
and non-skiers. One of the organization's primary
goals has been to get more African Americans outdoors
and participating in winter sports, and to support
youth with goals of becoming a member of
the US Ski and Olympic Ski Teams. The Western
Region's mission is to ensure the survival and
growth of member clubs and to promote unity and
harmony through fun and education. In addition,
the NBS Western Region seeks to increase the
" Level " of Welcome " at all levels of the snowsports industry
on and off the slopes.

(Oakland), Four Seasons West (Los Angeles), Four Seasons
Northwest (Seattle), and Ujama (Los Angeles).
