What we're about

"Fagowees" is an acronym that stands for: Fun And Games On WeekEnds Especially Skiing.

The first Fagowees chapter was formed in 1966 in Washington D.C. to promote competitive & recreational skiing along with many other year-round activities and social events for its members. Many other chapter followed, including the Cleveland Branch. As winter sports have evolved to include snowboarding, so has our club.
