History
The year was 1982 when a handful of intrepid Orange County skiers founded the Fountain Valley Ski Club. Mostly members of the Los Caballeros Racket Club in Fountain Valley, they had been driving to Rosemead to participate in monthly bus trips to Mammoth Mountain sponsored by the So Cal Edison Ski Club. At the first club meeting, anyone who either knew how to ski, had an interest in the sport or wanted to learn was welcome - a friendly invitation that is still extended today.

Over the years, snow sports have continued to be the club's focus, with varied year-round activities such as tennis, golf, bowling, camping, bicycling, rafting, wine tasting, beach parties and the arts. The monthly Bota newsletter serves to keep the membership abreast of club happenings. Since that first meeting with 125 participants, FVSC has maintained a dedicated core of members, operating like an extended family of friends.

The club's weekend trip format has remained constant, though prices have risen - in the early 80's 2-day trips were sold for $85 and Mammoth lift tickets were only $19! Today, club membership dues are a bargain - only $5 more than the original fee of $25.

Each year the club features a week-long trip to a mountain outside of California. The list below recaps the terrific resorts we have visited throughout the west. Ever since the first trip to Sun Valley for $595, the club's aim has been to provide great value for a week of top-level winter fun.
