86th Annual FWSA Convention in Reno, NV June 7-10 2018!

The Far West Ski Association invites all snowsports enthusiasts to attend its 86th Annual Convention, to be held at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, June 7-10, 2018, in beautiful Reno, Nevada.    

Delegate Registration Packets were sent out the end of February, so all Far West ski clubs should have theirs in hand.  (If you do not, please contact your ski club council President immediately).  Your four-day weekend will be busy with all that is planned, including:  discussions on programs in public affairs, skier safety, ski heritage, athletic scholarships, racing, communications, travel, council development, ski industry and community outreach. The event will be hosted by the Bay Area Snow Sports Council and Sierra League and Council.

Lodging at our group rate (single or double occupancy) is available at Atlantis Casino Resort Spa three days pre and post convention, based on availability. Rates are plus tax and $2 daily tourist surcharge:  $80 Sunday through Thursday, and $129 Friday and Saturday.  Per our contract, we have NO RESORT FEES and Wi-Fi is FREE in the guest rooms. Parking is FREE and transportation to and from the airport is FREE.   The Room block release date is May 17, 2018 - the group rate will no longer be available after this date.  

The Silent Auction & Trade Show Friday night gives attendees the opportunity to bid on ski and travel packages which often go for a fraction of their value.  This event is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.  

The rest of the weekend will be filled with Education Sessions and Public Affairs sessions on Saturday morning and afternoon, followed by our Awards Banquet on Saturday evening, recognizing outstanding club members and industry partners.  Sunday winds up with our Annual Meeting and Elections.  

Your registration price of $159 (if paid by May 7) includes all educational sessions and most of your meals for the weekend, including all meals on Saturday and the Sunday Brunch.  The cost of registration goes up to $175 after May 7, and goes up again to $190 after May 21.  You can sign up and pay online through the FWSA website.
