The convention attendees will exploring public affairs programs, safety programs, athletic scholarships, racing, ski industry and outreach to their local communities.

The FWSA is a non-profit organization that’s run by volunteers.  It represents 150 different ski clubs across our region in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

The event is being hosted by the Bogus Basin Ski Club and Intermountain Ski Council.

Some of the highlighted events inclue A Taste of Idaho dinner on Wednesday June 7th, Rafting on the Payette River and Pub Crawl, Thursday June 8th, and golf tournament and time around Boise Friday June 9th.  The bigger convention activities will be at the Boise Center Saturday and Sunday, June 10th and 11th.
