AWSA Personal Best Stickers Available

As a reminder, within the My Stats feature of AWSA's mobile app, when a member achieves a personal best within the previous 12 months, a yellow Personal Best banner appears. Clicking on the banner creates an email requesting one of these Personal Best stickers, which we hope people will collect and display proudly as a symbol of their recent achievements. Up and coming skiers may collect several of them, and who knows, they might become coveted like the reward or pride decals on the back of high school and college football helmets. Skiers and officials can earn a handle for a number of achievements, such as winning Nationals, being a chief official at a major event, or other significant accomplishments.
