FWSA

The FWSA Safety Award is graciously being sponsored by Telluride Ski Resort and Mountain Lodge Telluride. In 1998, the first award was presented to the person who coined the phrase that would best sum up the FWSA safety position.

About the Safety Person of the Year Award

The association is a constant proponent of safe skiing. Safety should be given the highest regard by both ski resorts and participants. Safety should be a forethought not an afterthought.

Safety is no accident, safety is having fun consciously!

This yearly award honors the person who has done the most to promote safety consciousness within the association. This can be done through a variety of methods including safety articles, on mountain activities, presentations, public speaking, working ski patrol, creating posters or banners, and many other activities.
