The Central Ohio Alpine Ski Troop (COAST) was founded in 1989 in Columbus, Ohio. The purpose of this organization is to promote the sport of skiing among minorities with an emphasis on youth and to enhance the sport of skiing through community involvement, group participation and educational seminars.
