Space is limited, and our daytrips sell out.

Signing up is simple. You'll simply provide your information, then proceed to payment. For daytrips, we ask each individual to personally sign up; if you're a duo, please submit a separate signup form for each participant.

After we've received your signup & payment, you'll receive an
confirmation via email that you're registered for the trip.

We reserve the right to cancel, reschedule, or make changes in the trip itinerary as a result of weather or safety considerations or as otherwise deemed necessary or advisable. If your trip is cancelled or rescheduled due to weather, snow, or mountain conditions, or circumstances beyond our control, you will receive a full credit for a future trip. All trip credits may be applied to any trip in the SKI BUMS future. There is no expiration date.

SKI BUMS is not responsible for the cost of any additional expenses that you may incur as a result of trip rescheduling or cancellation (airline ticketing fees, etc.).

To use a credit for a future deposit or payment, please
contact us directly.
Up to 14 days before your trip, you may cancel your spot at any time and receive a full refund.

If you cancel 7 to 14 days before the trip: you are no longer eligible for a refund. You may, however, apply the full cost of your daytrip toward any other trip on the 2015 SKI BUMS calendar.

If you cancel 4 to 6 days before the trip, there is a $50 cancellation fee.

Within 72 hours of our departure time, there is no refund for any cancellations. SKI BUMS recommends travel insurance for those who must cancel for work or illness reasons.

In order to obtain our bulk group discounts, we must agree to a very strict cancellation policy. It's the nature of group travel. Think of your SKI BUMS booking as you would an airline reservation; even we find someone to take your place,
the cancellation fees still apply.

If you buy travel insurance, you can still receive a refund for a cancelled SKI BUMS trip.

Buy travel insurance. We cannot stress this enough.

A travel insurer can provide a refund even when SKI BUMS cannot. In the circumstance that you need to cancel your trip because of work or health reasons, you should purchase travel insurance within 30 days of your initial trip deposit.

Even if you purchase travel insurance after this date, some coverage is much better than no coverage at all. Our cancellation policy is strict, and after cancellation fees kick in, a travel insurer may be your only chance for a full refund.

There are many travel insurers, and policies are very affordable. We especially recommend, and suggest you add the sports package to cover skiing & snowboarding activity.

It's crucial that you've got proper attire for skiing and snowboarding. Learn about five must-have items: ski pants; gloves; goggles; jacket; and a helmet -- in addition to other advice on our informative guide: How to Dress for the Slopes. You can rent a helmet at the mountain, but you'll need to purchase the other items before the daytrip.

Each resort for the NYC daytrips is varied and fun -- and designed to welcome skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. Although no one would compare the terrain here to something you'd find in the big mountains out West, there's fun to be had for everyone.

Be sure to get a good night's sleep the night before our trip! You'll want to be well rested to have a great day. Thankfully, we dim the lights for the drive up to the mountain so you can also take a nap on the way there.
We've got our own private charter bus to take us to and from each daytrip destination. We pick up and drop off on the corner of 8th Avenue and 34th Street.
Upon arrival at the mountain, we trade names and phone numbers with the others in your skill level group, so you can enjoy the day with others who enjoy the same kind of terrain -- at the same pace -- that you do. This is a huge part of what makes SKI BUMS so fun. Learn more >
One of the undeniable highlights of our day is the bus party home, when everyone shares cocktails, beer and homemade goodies. We crank up the tunes from the SKI BUMS 2015 Party Playlist and rock out on our way back to the city!
5:40 AM *sharp* is our check-in time for the Saturday trips. (Our Wednesday trip checks in one hour later). You'll meet our trip leaders at our bus pick up spot, on the corner of 8th Avenue and 34th Street, then take your seat on the bus.
WE LEAVE ON TIME, at 6 AM sharp. (One hour later for the Wednesday trip.) If you are running late, do not call or message us asking to hold the bus for you. We leave on time. There are no refunds if you miss the bus.
Most BUMS wear their skiing / snowboarding clothes on the way up, but you may want to bring a change of clothes for the end of the day. Additionally, bring money for lunch (or a sack lunch), and food & drinks for the bus party home.

Party planning: think picnic foods. Our party happens during dinnertime, so folks are craving protein. We're always looking for a good mix of savory and sweet items. Pre-mixed cocktails, micro-brews and light beers are popular. Have fun and get ready to impress the BUMS with your culinary marvels!
We meet up as a big group for lunch, then finish the day at après-ski, the traditional toast to the end of a fun day on the mountain. But that's not where the fun ends...
About 2/3rds of our participants rent equipment, and we offer discounted rentals for each daytrip. ALL BUMS MUST WEAR HELMETS. You can rent one at the mountain for about $10 a day.
No matter what your skill level -- from beginner to expert -- we encourage participants to take lessons, especially on daytrips, where we get great rates on group lessons. You may pre-pay for a lesson by adding it when you sign up for a daytrip, or pay in cash on the morning of the trip when you check in with the SKI BUMS trip leaders.
We return to NYC (to the same spot we were picked up) at 8:30 PM, depending on traffic. Our Valentine's Day party will bring us directly to the location of our group dinner and after-party.
We send important information emails in the days just before the trip, including our trip itinerary, which you can print at home or view on your mobile phone. If you don't receive these emails, look in your SPAM (or Gmail's Promotions folder). Contact us if you don't see them.
Our daytrips are the heart of what makes SKI BUMS so much fun.

Talk to anyone who's been on one of our daytrips, and you'll hear the same things. "Soooo much fun." "My favorite thing about the winter." "I met more cool people in one day than I had met all year."

When we say that the daytrips are all about
bonding, we mean it.

It's an easy escape from the city.
About 2 1/2 hours away, the Catskills are dotted with fun-loving mountains like Windham, Hunter and Belleayre. Over in Pennsylvania, the Poconos stretch out across Camelback. And when the SKI BUMS head to these hills for a full day of fun, we do it up right: complete with our own charter bus and a rollicking bus party home.

Whether you're learning to ski or you eat black diamonds for breakfast, the SKI BUMS daytrips are an incredible way to get plugged in and make a whole bunch of new friends. Everyone's welcome -- so join us!

Our daytrips are now sold out.

New daytrip signups are currently paused.

We have beginner skiers and snowboarders on every daytrip we host, but one trip in particular -- January 17th at Windham -- is a a day that's dedicated to our new skiers and snowboarders. On this trip, new skiers and snowboarders receive a free group lesson. Each year, about a third of our 50 participants will be learning to ski or snowboard for the first time. We lovingly refer to this trip as Bunny Hill -- named after the the gently-sloped learning area that you'll find at any ski resort.
If you're brand new to skiing or snowboarding, our daytrips are a perfect way to learn the ropes on the slopes. As a general rule of thumb, it takes most people three days of skiing or riding to really get the hang of things.
See the Preparation area, above -- it's crucial that you've got five must-have items for a day of skiing and snowboarding. Our helpful article, "How to Dress for the Mountain" has great advice on which items are most important to buy now, vs. which items can wait until you've fallen in love with your new winter sport. ;)
Contact us with any questions -- and don't feel dumb if you are unsure about something. You can also post questions on our Daytrips Facebook page -- the BUMS love to help!
About half of all SKI BUMS members are single... but we've never done something special for our single guys and gals... until this season. With Valentine's Day on a Saturday, we couldn't resist the idea of hosting a special daytrip in honor of the single BUMS!

In truth,
anyone can sign up for our Valentine's Day trip -- if you're single now, but you've got a boyfriend or girlfriend in February, we won't kick you off the bus --  but we're going to have special surprises and prizes during the day, and this trip ends with a cool, delicious dinner and after-party back in NYC!

UPDATE: our daytrip is now sold out, but we're going to have fun afterwards...
For 2015, we have a new wait list procedure & policy for our daytrips.

After a daytrip sells out, any
registered SKI BUMS member may add his or her name to our wait list, up until 7 days before the trip. There is no obligation if you add your name to the wait list.

At 12:00 PM EST, 6 days before the trip (the Sunday before a Saturday trip), we will email and text-message all those who have signed up for the wait list with the following information:

+ How many wait listed spots are now open
+ A special
access code to sign up for the daytrip

At that point,
all the open spots will be available to everyone on our wait list. Anyone who's on our list may then sign up to claim one of the spots on a first-come, first-served basis, until the trip is full.
