Taos Sports Associates is a 501 (c) 3 organization established in 1976, operating under the name Taos Winter Sports Team (TWST). TWST is dedicated to providing opportunities for athletes to become great skiers and pursue personal goals. TWST promotes development of good sportsmanship, healthy competitiveness, sound technical skills and a reverence for the ethos of the mountains. The team provides coaching, training and competition support in three different snow sports: Ski Racing, Slopestyle and Big Mountain.
The endowment fund held at TCF is in memory of James Herrera, a former ski team athlete and coach who entertained team members, coaches and families with his exceptional personality and skiing skill. The fund will provide need-based scholarships for local athletes who want to train and compete. Funds could assist with program/coaching fees, season passes to TSV, Inc., equipment, competition entry and/or travel expenses.
