Thursday, February 2 to Sunday, February 5, 2022
Just moments from the lifts, we've got well-appointed two-bedroom condos at Stratton's own Long Trail House Condos. They've got four beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and interior hallways -- which makes it wonderfully easy to say hi to the BUMS in the other units without gettin' chilly.

Our condos feature a heated outdoor pool, hot tub, sauna, high-speed internet, ski and snowboard storage, laundry facilities, and more.

Our trip includes a 3-day adult lift ticket to Stratton Resort. Non skiers / boarders may use their lift tickets for a day of snow tubing, snowshoeing (with snowshoe rental) or cross-country skiing (with rental). The cost of your lift tickets is included in your Event Pass.

We are carpooling for this trip. You may make your own arrangements; the SKI BUMS trip leaders will also help assemble a carpool for those who are traveling from New York City. If you'll need a ride -- or you have space to offer -- you may indicate it on our signup form.
Our trip includes invitations to a private Welcome Party on Thursday night at 8 PM. We're also hosting a group dinner at Stratton on Saturday (which is not pre-paid) and a super-fun private party on Saturday night. The cost of these events is included in your Event Pass.
Through our Flexible Lodging option, we are happy to arrange roommates for you. Typically, more than half of our participants ask us to arrange roommates for them. Our sign-up form has a few easy questions to accommodate your preferences.
You may add a discounted 3-day ski or snowboard rental package for $80.
We recommend this trip for ALL skiers and snowboarders. Stratton's a fantastic place to learn to ski or snowboard, polish your skills, or push yourself on fun, challenging terrain. SKI BUMS hosts skill level groups at the start of each day; you'll always have others to ski and snowboard alongside you who enjoy the same terrain you do. View the Stratton trail map >
If you're a beginner, we
recommend our 2012 trip to Stratton! It's a fantastic place to polish your skills on runs that are right up your alley.

You should only complete our signup form if you have received an individual invitation from an official Stratton Trip Leader or a Condo Captain. For all others, please sign up for our wait list >


SKI BUMS does not permit "trip crashers" to attend our trips. If you would like to ski or snowboard with us, attend our private events, join our parties, etc, you
must sign up via the SKI BUMS website. Space is limited. See our policy on trip crashing & custom trips >

The BUMS have been begging to go back to Stratton, Vermont ever since our fun-loving trip there in 2007. (Ahhh, relive some memories here!) Stratton does everything right, and makes it easy. With a self-contained ski village that's got lodging, restaurants and shops all within easy walking distance -- and condos that are connected with interior hotel hallways -- it's the perfect weekend for easy socializing. Add on the fun of a terrific ski area with a 2,000 vertical drop and plenty of runs for every skill level, and the BUMS will be set for yet another weekend you'll never forget.

SKI BUMS trips are always
extra fun when you've got a few friends along for the adventure. Best of all, if your friends don't ski or ride at the same level as you, they'll still have a super-fun group of people to join them on the mountain!

There are three different options for our lodging at Stratton:

FLEXIBLE LODGING | Most participants choose this. You'll be placed a 2-bedroom condo, and we'll provide roommates for you. (You may still request people with whom you'd like to share a unit). These are four-person units with four beds (a queen, two twins, and a queen sofa sleeper). Typically, couples or friends will share the queen bed, and the other two roommates will be in the 2nd BR, but you may decide with your condo-mates how you'd like to do things.

CONDO CAPTAIN | If you would like to pre-pay for the lodging portion of an entire unit, you may do so -- then invite up to 5 additional BUMS to join you. The maximum occupancy for each unit is six adults. You'll collect lodging payment from your participants, but everyone who you invite must sign up for the Stratton trip via SKI BUMS and obtain an Event Pass (see pricing, below).

CONDO CREW | Those who are in a Condo Captain's unit are called the Condo Crew. They pay their Condo Captain directly for their lodging costs.
