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.

We will be going to Big White in December & April. Big White typically has the absolute best early and spring skiing. Our Cabo trip was cancelled due to the Odlie Hurricane. We've managed to reschedule at the same low prince

  • Big White, BC, Canada, April 4–11, 2015
  • Cabo San Jose, Mexico, April 23 – May 3, 2014
  • Italy, TBA March 2016
  • New Zealand & Australia, TBA

Wine Maker Dinner for MS—
The 2015 Wine Maker Dinner for MS will be held October 3, 2015 in San Diego. To date we have raised (with your help) more than $36,000 for Can Do MS (formerly The Jimmie Heuga Center for MS).

Executive Chef Mary Trimmins and Sous Chef Gene Fulkerson spun their magic with the wines and matching food pairings and both plan to back this year.

Read all about the 2013 fun, wines and food HERE. Photos and details from 2014 should be available soon.

We are hoping to have a fundraising BBQ and previewing of the Jimmie Heuga movie in the Summer. Will be sending out an email blast as soon as we are able to finalize the details.

Pac Rim Website is getting a Refresh—
It's a slow process but we are in the midst of refreshing our website. It is still fully functional but you will notice that some pages may look out of place. We hope to have the website completed shortly. Please let the webmaster know if you find anything broken.

Pac Rim is a Triple Winner at the Far West Convention—
At the 2014 Far West Convention held in Bend, OR, June 12–15, 2014, Pacific Rim Alliance was awarded Outstanding Club, Newsletter and Web Site in the smallest division AA (100-199 members).
