What we do
Registered yet?
Membership is free, but you need to register (or renew) your SKI BUMS membership before you sign up for a trip.
Space is limited
To maintain an intimate, tight-knit atmosphere on our trips, we limit the number of participants for every trip we host. It's a big part of what makes SKI BUMS trips so unique and cool -- you'll feel like you're really part of a group of new friends.

After a trip sells out, you're invited to sign up for our
Wait List; members get special priority on our lists!

SKI BUMS began as a local LGBT skiing and snowboarding club in New York City, then quickly grew to become the world's largest club of LGBT skiers and snowboarders, with more than 2,500 members from all 50 states and 20 foreign countries. You're invited to join a SKI BUMS trip no matter where you live.

2015 marked our eleventh season. Over the last decade, we've hosted more than fifty overnight trips to ten US states and eight foreign countries, and we've packed fifty buses for fun-loving day trips, too. The best years are still ahead!
