Originally founded in 1960 as a ski and social club for single adults, the Single Ski Club has evolved to now include married members. What has not changed for the Single Ski Club has been the many diverse programs offered to its members: athletic, racing, social, cultural, public affairs, domestic and international travel, awards, ski heritage, skier safety and community service.
Founded in 1934 and incorporated in 1937, the Fresno Ski Club is one of the nation’s oldest incorporated ski clubs. The Club traces its origins to the early development days of the local ski resorts, Badger Pass and China Peak/Sierra Summit. Photo of Edie Reynolds, president form 1959-60.
Skiyente Ski Club was started in 1955 when some members of Associated Women Skiers (AWS), the first all women’s ski club in the United States, decided they wanted to focus more closely on ‘mountain activities’ vs. the ‘social and non-mountain community events.’ These women sought out others with the same objectives and formed Skiyente Ski Club, which loosely translated, means “Ski Maiden”.
North Island was founded in 1977 by a few North Island Federal employees interested in skiing. The original name was “North Island Ski Club.” The founding 12 members, led by the first president, Jerry Jakel, had visions of chartering buses to Mammoth and renting a condo or two for the club. Many of the original members are still members today.
