About us‎ > ‎


In 1971, a group of friends decided that they could save money by taking busloads of people up to Mammoth Mountain for the weekend, instead of trying to make the arrangements on their own.

An ad was placed in some of the local papers and the first meeting drew over fifty interested people. And so, the L.A. Asian Ski Club was born.

Since then, the Club has grown into a regional organization that has expanded to cover all of Southern California, with members as far away as Hawaii and New England. There are strong ties to the Asian American cultural community and the feeling of “family” is what binds our members together.

In 2001, the club had a rebirth of sorts, incorporating as a 503(c) non-profit organization with the new name of Asian Skiing & Boarding Club of Los Angeles. The new non-profit status reflected the club’s commitment to the community, while the new name reflected the addition of snowboarders to our “family.”
