FWSA’s mission is to sustain and grow the sport of snow skiing by attracting and building upon the family and youth market. With a focus on short and long-range planning for family and youth involvement, the objective is to develop programs and services that will welcome families and youth into our ski organizations.

Strategy and Objectives

Our strategy is to build interest in family ski outings through events hosted at the Council and at the FWSA levels. We will provide the opportunity for the youth/family audience to get familiar with our ski councils, FWSA, and the experience and value that we provide. We will continue to offer FWSA level programs to serve this growing member base. The intent is to build a program that would not disrupt service to our member base that enjoys adult-only activities while ‘growing’ our membership base by including youth and families where appropriate.

Volunteers and Participants Needed

Future programs and services for family members will depend on interest from our membership and availability of volunteers to plan and lead family activities. If you are interested in volunteering to help plan a family or youth event at the FWSA level or thru your council, please contact the Youth and Family Involvement Chairperson.
