Chapman “Chappie” Wentworth contributed to FWSA for over 50 years. Chap undertook committee responsibilities for the Association in the 1950s and served as Secretary of FWSA when the numbers of officers were far fewer. He was an editor of several Tahoe area newspapers and edited Bill Berry’s book "Lost Sierra: Gold, Ghosts & Skis.

Chap and his wife Janet were always ready to lend support in the Bay Area or Tahoe raising funds for ski causes and the US Ski Team.

2015 saw a realignment of the classifications. The classes are based on experience rather than size. For the first year, first place finishers from the past 4 years are in the Masters Class. Second and third place finishers from the past 4 years are in the Advanced Class. Novice Class is for those who are new or has not placed in the past 4 years.

For subsequent years, if you win in your class, you are bumped up a class. If you have not won in four years, you are bumped down. The window of consideration is over a four-year period.

It was fitting that Chap be remembered for his dedication to FWSA by giving his name to the Outstanding Club Publication.

Chap Wentworth
A native of Boston, Chap graduated from Dartmouth, having skied on the varsity team. Chap was scheduled to participate in the canceled 1940 Olympics and was Southern California’s Downhill Champion for 1941.
