The Far West Ski Association Turns 90 - 25

NBS elections were held in 1975 and in the following
year, 1976, George Phillips of All Seasons Ski
Club was elected the first Western Region Vice
President. The two Directors were Ben Finley of
Four Seasons West and Joe Jones of Four Seasons
Northwest.
The NBS Western Region is proud to support
youth and adult outreach programs conducted by
its member clubs, and to directly host two youth
programs. Thus, the Western Region has implemented
two unique programs: Building Essential
Skills and Talents (BEST) is for youth development;
and Operations Improvement Seminar (OIS). The
later program concerns management of club operations.
Paul Ray, President of Black Gold, introduced
these successful regional programs, OIS and
BEST, to the NBS national level in 1989.
Annually, the NBS Western Region hosts
youth and families at its Urban Winterfest at a different
mountain resort during King Holiday Weekend.
In addition to exposing the youth to snowsports,
the weekend includes teambuilding activities
culminating in the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Commemorative Breakfast. The goal here is to introduce
youth to each other and have them work
together to deliver a presentation to breakfast attendees.
The
National Brotherhood of Skiers' pledge is: " To identify, develop and support athletes of color
who will WIN international and Olympic winter sports competitions representing the United States
and to increase participation in winter sports. " The Snowbusters Ski Club of the National Brotherhood
of Skiers - Western Region holds an annual YOUTH Snow Day LEARN to Ski event to introduce the love
of skiing to the younger generations in 2017. photo provided by Todd Hood
