About Far West Masters

The Far West Masters is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to organizing USSA masters alpine ski competitions in the Far West division. See the Contacts page for a complete list of the current officers and key volunteers.

Far West Masters races are governed by our Rules and Regulations, which supplement the standard USSA alpine masters competition rules which apply to all sanctioned masters competitions in the US.

Note: the FWM Rules and Regulations document has not yet been updated for the 2010 season to reflect the change from 10-year age classes to competing in the standard USSA masters 5-year age classes.

Race Coordinators and Officials

Volunteer race coordinators from the Far West Masters assist race organizers with registration and checkin. Visit the Race Coordinators page for information about what a race coordinator does and standard forms included in the race coordinator's packet for each race.

Members of the Far West Masters who are licensed USSA officials volunteer their time on race day to serve as the TD (technical delegate) and referee on the race jury. Information and standard forms used by race officials are provided for their convenience on the Race Forms page.

Far West Masters Board

The Far West Masters board meets at regular intervals, usually at least once during the summer, along with a fall meeting to prepare for the coming season and a winter meeting during the season. All meetings are open - members are invited to attend and minutes are published to record the discussions.

Visit the Board page for meeting minutes and other board documents.
