END OF THE SEASON PARTY: NYC Thursday, April 7, 2016, from 7 to 10 PM Boxers HK -- 742 9th Avenue, at 50th Street, NYC FREE -- no cover, must be 21 to enter
This year’s End of the Season Party will be unlike any we’ve ever hosted — because we’re launching the signups for some of most thrilling 2017 destinations. Take a moment to re-connect with the BUMS you met in the mountains this season and begin dreaming & planning ahead for when you’ll rendezvous next winter!
Come meet the BUMS! Get a feel for our laid-back, friendly vibe. Chat us up about your favorite skiing and snowboarding destinations. Get advice on gear, or find a roomie for an upcoming trip. Meet the skiers and boarders who you'll be tearing up the mountains alongside this winter. And then, after a trip, reconnect with all your new friends and maintain those new friendships all season long. This is Avalanche, and it's our ongoing party for SKI BUMS and friends. It's a come-as-you-are, relaxed evening at a local bar, and it's the perfect way to check out SKI BUMS and get a good sense of what we're all about.
We host Avalanche parties in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, London (UK), Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City, Paris (France), Salt Lake City, San Francisco and Sydney (Australia).
It's funny how sometimes, the simplest things can be so powerful.
Like walking down a street.
Participating in a Pride event is empowering. Whether you join us for the NYC Pride March, the Washington DC Pride Festival,San Francisco Pride our NYC Pride Party, we hope you'll take a moment to reflect on how great it is to enjoy the freedom of simply being yourself, surrounded by incredible friends who relate to you.
In The Bums Rush, competitors race through historic places and undiscovered corners of New York City, determined to outpace and outsmart their competitors. Inspired by the hit TV show "The Amazing Race," the contest explodes LIVE onto the stage of The Bums Rush Prize Party, where our finalists compete to win our Grand Prize: a free vacation to a spectacular world-class ski resort.
The 2015 edition awarded trips to the Italian Dolomites!
Huge congrats to Chris and Kira, this year’s Grand Prize winners!!!

You might not expect it when you look at our photo galleries, but SKI BUMS has a lot of female members. The big challenge, of course, is getting them to come out and meet one another. That's why we host Powder Room, our special party specifically for the ladies of SKI BUMS! After successful all-girls grips to resorts in New York, Vermont and Colorado, we've had the chance to build up an amazing dynamic among the skiing and snowboarding women of SKI BUMS. If you're someone who's thinking of joining us this season, we've got some awesome girls that we want you to meet.
Everyone is welcome at Powder Room -- so whether you've already signed up for membership or you're simply curious about us, mark your calendar, RSVP on Facebook and plan to join us.
