September 2011 -- thru April 2012

We host Avalanche parties New York City, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Denver and Salt Lake City. Coming soon: Minneapolis, Atlanta, Toronto, Paris & Sydney.

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.

Everyone is welcome at our Avalanche parties -- spread the word and invite your friends!
