The Convention will be held at the spectacular Grand Sierra Resort and Casino.

    A Grand Sierra Standard Room is $79.00 and the Summit Suites Grand II upgrade is $104 (double occupancy). To book your reservation, call 800.648.5080 or 775.789.2129 and use the Group Name: Far West Ski Association 2013. For booking online, go to https://resweb.passkey.com/go/FarWestSki.

    Optional Activities
    The fun begins on Thursday evening, with a River Walk Pub Crawl. Friday's events will include the 7th Annual Michael German Memorial Golf Tournament, Reno Run Whitewater Rafting, Tahoe Rim Trail Hike, Grand Sierra Spa Day, and Grand Sierra Resort Fun Day, followed by a raucous Beach Party in the afternoon, hosted by Central Council, and sponsored by Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort.

    Convention Incentive
    This year, FWSA is offering an "economic relief" program to provide a ski club the opportunity to send more delegates to the Convention. For every six (6) delegates that have paid the full registration package, the club would get a rebate of one (1) paid registration after the convention.

    Direct Members
    If you do not belong to a ski club, you are still welcome to attend the Convention. See the FWSA website for detailed registration information for direct members.
