In 1999, E.S.S.V. Avalanche Boarders was founded by a group of friends who snowboarded together. They wanted their community to expand beyond their group of friends and also to be open to other snowboarders who studied in Eindhoven, thus Avalanche Boarders was founded. The first years were a continuation of this group of friends which slowly but surely expanded.
In 2002 the first “Studenten Wintersport” (StuWi) was organised, Avalanche Boarders was a major party in this. Because there were two major groups going on this holiday, a group of serious wintersporters and a group of people who had about as much interest in wintersports as they had in partying, it was decided to split these two groups. As a result, Avalanche was a founding party for the NSSK, the Dutch Student Snow Championships. Avalanche Boarders was often represented in the boards of the NSSK, together with members of the other boardsportsassociations, most notably Spin (Utrecht) and D.E.R.M. (Amsterdam). Unfortunately the 2012 edition had a very poor attendance, which meant the NSSK was merged back into StuWi. However the combination of these two groups does mean massive attendance.
