Please take note of the following SKI BUMS policies:
Our trips are exclusively for members who have signed up for them.
SKI BUMS trips are exclusively for our dues-paying members. We cannot allow non-members
to join us on a trip. There are two reasons for this:

1. Legal liability. Anyone who travels with us, stays in our lodging, or skis or snowboards
with us must have signed our legal liability waiver (below). There can be no exceptions.

2. Fairness. SKI BUMS staff and volunteers work very hard to plan our season. It's a
tremendous amount of work. Our members have paid for the privilege of enjoying these
trips. It's unfair to our membership (and our staff) to take advantage of a trip's organization
without contributing.

Any member who invites a non-member to join any element of a trip ("trip
crashing") is subject to having his or her membership revoked.
This includes the
official SKI BUMS social events during our overnight trips. If you would like to break away to
spend time with other friends, you may -- but if have a friend who would like to join
us, he or
she must  become a member and sign up for the trip.

In addition, members may not join a trip for which they have not signed up and
paid via SKI BUMS.
Doing so is unfair to the SKI BUMS staff and the trip's other participants.

I will not invite a non-member to "crash" a SKI BUMS trip:
