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 will be schedule for late October - early November in 2016.

Fund Raising for Can Do MS—
The 2016 Wine Maker Dinner for MS was held October 1, 2016 in San Diego. To date we have raised (with your help) almost $40,000 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 2016 fun, wines and food HERE. We raised $2,250!

Our next Wine Maker Dinner for MS will be held September 30, 2017 in San Diego, CA.

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

Pac Rim is a Triple Winner at the Far West Convention—
