The FWSA Safety Award is graciously being sponsored by Telluride Ski Resort and Mountain Lodge Telluride. Aspen/Snowmass had sponsored this award from its inception in 1998 until 2014.

The first year, the award was presented to the person who coined the phrase that would best sum up the FWSA safety position. Jim Ortiz contributed the appropriate tag line — a clever safety acronym for FWSA.

Ski With Pride - Watch All Sides - Let It Ride
First With Safety Awareness

In subsequent years, the Safety Award honors the person within FWSA who does the most to promote safe skiing and safety programs at the club and/or council level. Individuals are judged through the utilization of organized events, educational forums, print and electronic media, on mountain activities and partnering with other, safety focused community and industry organizations.
