FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – March 18, 2020


FAR WEST SKI ASSOCIATION SUPPORTS SKI AREA CLOSURES

As an organization of passionate skiers and riders, we are disappointed that ski resorts are suspending operations or closing for the season depriving us of the activity that we love; however, this is the right decision and we applaud and support our industry partners for having to make this very difficult decision. The health and safety of our members, families, ski area employees and our mountain communities far outweigh the risk of continuing to spread the COVID-19 virus. 

This pandemic affects us all and we are all in this together. We urge you to do your part and comply with the “Social Distancing” to help slow the exponential spread of the virus. With your help, we can “Flatten the Curve”

FWSA is one of the country’s largest ski associations in the United States, now with ten active councils representing more than 53,000 skiers and boarders from more than 160 clubs in twelve western states – Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. For additional information regarding the Far West Ski Association, please visit our website at www.fwsa.org.
