The Nisei Ski Club is a non-profit organization founded in the late 1950’s by a group of Japanese American Nisei (second generation) skiers interested in promoting the sport of skiing/snowboarding, friendship and fun within the community. The current membership consists of Japanese Americans (Nisei, Sansei, Yonsei) as well as other Asians and Non-Asians.


Our membership annually consists of over 100 members. While the majority of our members reside in the San Francisco Bay Area, we also have members from Southern California, Washington, Colorado, New York, and Hawaii.
