FWSA Richard Lubin Safety Person of the Year
Holidaze Ski Tours
and Mammoth Mountain Ski Area
began a joint sponsorship of this award in 2023. Mammoth Mountain Ski Area sponsored this award from 2020-2022. Telluride Ski Resort and Mountain Lodge Telluride sponsored this award from 2015-2019. 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
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.
