Jazz Ma Tazz is a group of skiers who gathered together in 1989 and chartered as an affiliated club under the Mid-West Region of the National Brotherhood of Skiers (NBS). In 1993 Jazz Ma Tazz became a non-profit corporation in the State of Louisiana and now promotes, as well as, participates in activities that benefit the National Brotherhood of Skiers.
Jazz Ma Tazz aims to encourage and promote the sport of skiing among skiers, bring together people who are interested in promoting the sport of skiing among minorities, and collectively enhance the sport of skiing through social and educational activities including group and community involvement.
So what does a ski club from below sea level do in the mountains? Bring the Big Easy to new altitudes! We share our Crescent City flare with a second line to the beats of a brass band at the Opening Ceremonial parade- complete with Mardi Gras throws, twirling parasols, and waving handkerchiefs. While proudly wearing our purple, green, and gold we bring the flavor of New Orleans' traditional Cajun and Creole cuisine by serving up gumbo, red beans, jambalaya, fried seafood, and smothered chops. It’s all about skiing and sharing our unique culture while we… laissez les bon temps rouler!
