Ski Month

Safety Awareness Month


The Pacific Rim Alliance is a non-profit organization dedicated to the real appreciation of snowboarding, skiing, sight-seeing, photography, travel, public awareness and so much more.

The Alliance is further oriented to the building of international relations among skiers, snowboarders and sports organizations throughout the Pacific Rim. The Alliance is a member of the San Diego Council, the Los Angeles Council, the FWSA (Far West Ski Association), the NSAA (National Ski Areas Association), and the NSCF (National Ski Council Federation).

Surplus moneys above reserve requirements, for deposits for our subsequent expeditions, will be donated to tax deductible organizations devoted to charity, research and education. We are especially interested in, but not limited to, supporting Ski Area Development, Adaptive Ski Programs, Can Do MS (formerly The Jimmie Heuga Center for MS) and Olympic & Junior Racers. Our governing documents can be found HERE.
