Kronenstadt Ski Club
About Us and other Stuff
The Kronenstadt Ski Club is unique in offering social skiing opportunities in a distinctly noncompetitive atmosphere (although we do have a few members that wander off to the race course). This year we have scheduled seven drive up trips to Mammoth Mountain. At Mammoth Mountain, we enjoy comfortable four bedroom condo accommodations and the ever popular 'how few people can we fit into a hot tub' for pre-dinner relaxation. We also keep up a tradition of variety in our non-skiing social functions. Click the Social Events Tab.
If you are looking for a small ski club that is strong on camaraderie and friendship, Kronenstadt will meet your needs. Non-members are welcome on all trips and events.
Where did they get that funny name?
Kronenstadt Ski Club first came into existence in 1961, and officially adopted the name "Kronenstadt" (Crown City) in
1963. We are one of the longest established ski clubs in Southern California. As a web search name we are unique.
We are based in Pasadena, but no longer have meetings.
All membership info should go to our Membership Chairman.
All trip info should go to our Trip Vice President.
See Ski Trips for addresses.
NO SNOW. Why we stopped going to Mammoth on Thanksgiving Weekend trips.

Climate change hard at work!
GREAT SNOW. Why we love to go to Mammoth. 14 feet of the good stuff. 25' in 2011. Ten feet above this sign post.

Never too early or too late to get in shape for skiing. But when to find the time? The key is multi-tasking.
Stand on one leg while brushing your teeth. A little more work - bend your knee slightly. In no time both your teeth and your legs will look and feel great.

"Snowjob" This is not about shoveling snow, but it is the name of the Kronenstadt Ski Club Newsletter. Although the club was established in 1963, I do not know who came up with this name or when. (Does anyone know?) The Snowjob was originally published monthly by a team of graphic designers and editorial and publishing specialists. In the early days that meant typing, xerox, cut & paste, copy, fold, address, stamp and mail. With the advent of the internet, the Snowjob has gone the way of many great newspapers around the country. Which is to say it has not been published and >mailed in some time. All information about the club, our trips and activities are now only found on line in this website. The good news is that all the pictures are in color and the information is more up to date. Click on the link below to view an edited addition of an old Snowjob. If you still have an old copy, send me a pdf version of a classic Snowjob and I'll add it to the list.

Elections of Club Officers - Club officers are elected yearly at our June Meeting and Banquet from nominations made to the elections committee. The Club has the following officers: President, VP Trips, VP Social, Treasurer, Secretary, Membership, Programs and Past President. If you are a Member in good standing and would like to increase your level of support and participation in the club let me know and we can discuss how you can help.
Trip Leaders - KSC is a club run by volunteers, and one of these are the Trip Leaders. A Trip Leader takes over responsibility for the trip from our VP of Trips about two weeks before the trip. The Trip Leader's responsibilities include notifying all trip participants of their room and duty assignments. Taking the 'blue boxes' and the breakfast groceries to the condo. Organizing the dinner either by caterer or by preparing the meal yourself (everyone prefers this method). And basically making sure everything runs smoothly. For taking on this responsibility you get to go on the trip for a reduced cost and get the Master Bedroom. In September, call the VP of Trips to sign up to be a Trip Leader.
Next Seasons Trips - In August the VP of Trips establishes the dates for the next season's trips. These dates will be very close to those from this year. The official Trip Application Form is available September 10th and at that time it is first come-first served to sign up for the season. For 2018 there will be three mid-week trips to Mammoth. Please contact the VP of Trips if you have any questions about next seasons trips.
KSC Tri Fold- This handy piece of paper is used to tell newcomers about the activities of the Club. You can print it out on both sides of 8 1/2" x 11" paper, fold it into three sections, hence the name, and pass it out to prospective members. Click the link to download your own copy. 2018 season Trip application to be posted on 9-10-17.
