Far West’s 85th Annual Convention: The 85th Annual Far West Ski Association Convention will be held June 7-11, 2017, in beautiful Boise, Idaho, at the Grove Hotel and Boise Centre. The theme is ”BOisE IS…” with the event being co-hosted by Bogus Basin Ski Club and Intermountain Ski Council. Their Convention Committee has been hard at work planning activities and events to keep everyone busy for the four days we will be there. The resort is located minutes from the airport, in the heart of downtown Boise, so there will be plenty to do, whether you are doing a Far West activity, or just want to take some free time to shop and see the town.
Lodging at our group rate (single or double occupancy for $134 per night plus tax) is available at The Grove Hotel in Downtown Boise three days pre and post convention, based on availability. Per our contract, we have NO RESORT FEES and Wi-Fi is FREE in the guest rooms. For room reservations, call the Grove Hotel at 888-961-5000 and refer to our group name: “Far West Ski Association.” You can also register online at the FWSA room reservation site located HERE.
Proposed optional activities include A Taste of Idaho (Wednesday); Rafting on the Payette River and a Wine Wobble & Pub Crawl (Thursday); and the 11th Annual Michael German Memorial Golf Tournament, A Day on the Mountain, Boise Greenbelt Biking, and a Fountain Party (Friday). Friday night will be the annual Silent Auction & Dance, where you can bid on ski trips, tickets, and gear, which usually are sold at a fraction of their value!
Registration will be available and payable via PayPal or snail mail using the PDF Registration Form on the FWSA website.
