BBSC Past President / Convention Committee Co-Chair
ISC President / Convention Committee Co-Chair
It's our lucky year, Bogus Basin Ski Club and Intermountain Ski Council are hosting the annual FWSA convention right here in Boise!
Have you been thinking about attending a convention but didn't have the time or budget to travel out of state? This year the convention has come to us. It's the perfect opportunity to check it and get involved.
We encourage all members of the club to consider attending as a delegate. Delegates pay an admission fee* for full access to the convention, including celebrity speakers, panel discussions, Leadership Academy training sessions, trade show, and includes a brunch, luncheon, and awards banquet. Delegates participate in the general meeting and vote in the election.
* BBSC has sponsored admission for 5 delegates, chosen by lottery, to past conventions. Sponsored delegates are obligated to network for the club, and come back with ideas to share and help implement for the advancement of the club. Special, optional, add-on events available at an additional cost are the responsibility of the member.
If you don't think you are able or want to participate in all the events for the whole weekend, but are interested in a few of them, feel free to pick and choose and buy access ala carte for specific days and events only.

Bogus Basin Ski Club and Intermountain Ski Council are hosting the 90th annual Far West Ski Association (FWSA) convention at the Boise Centre East Ballroom 400. This event is open to the public and well worth the admission-NONE, $0, and you even get a free beer or glass of wine.
There will many western ski resorts in attendance with reps to talk to about their resort and offer a package for a silent auction that will take place between 7:00-9:30 PM. It is a travel trade-show for you to ask questions and get answers in person.
