Rokka Club newsletters got the downlow on the pow pow
The Rokka Ski Club started in 1936 by a small group of people of Japanese ancestry who loved to ski and race. The word Rokka was chosen because it translates from Japanese into “six sided snowflake.” World War II forced the club to disband due to the relocation of people of Japanese ancestry to the concentration camps, but was resurrected shortly after the war ended. The members of the club would meet in Seattle’s International District to carpool to the ski resorts in Snoqualmie Pass. It is the oldest Asian ski club in the United States.
Shortly after the ski club reformed, the ski school was developed to help the Rokka members improve their skiing. The Rokka Ski School has taught thousands of students, members and non-members, and is recognized member of the national association, Professional Ski Instructors of America (). The ski school is a voluntary organization and its instructors are non-paid. This helps Rokka keep its rates low and affordable to all. Rokka is recognized for its high level of quality instruction and the majority of its instructors are certified by the national association, PSIA.
So, become a member or sign up for a class. The staff and volunteers at Rokka will welcome you to the group. Also, we are known for the best potlucks on the slopes!
