2026 SHORT LIST BIDDING DESTINATIONS HAVE BEEN UPDATED

The FSC member clubs have voted on the FSC short list for 2026 North America trip bidding. Here are the results:

JANUARY 2026 FSC TRIP BIDDING

*Telluride, CO

Sun Valley, ID


FEBRUARY 2026 FSC TRIP BIDDING

**Beaver Creek, CO 

Park City/Deer Valley (Mayflower), UT



*Telluride, originally selected as a primary bidding destination for the February 2026 trip, has now replaced Palisades Tahoe as a January bidding destination. Palisades is unable to bid due to limited lodging availability in January 2026.   


**Beaver Creek, originally selected as an alternate February bidding destination, has replaced Telluride for February bidding due to a scheduling conflict at Telluride for the FSC preferred and alternate 2026 February trip dates.


The following tour operators have been invited to bid on the above trips:
