SKI BUMS features testimonials from our trip participants, to give a clearer picture of
what we're really like. Although many of our members have found us through friends,
vast majority of new members have told us they found us simply by searching
online for gay skiing / snowboarding clubs. When they visit the SKI BUMS site, they
arrive with all sorts of questions... such as:

What are the members like?  How well organized is everything?  Am I going to have
fun?  Are there other singles?  Other couples?  Will I fit in?  

If you can, think back to when you were first looking into SKI BUMS, or poking
around the SKI BUMS site. What sorts of questions did you have? What were your
hesitations, if any, about joining a group like this?

Then, take a minute to answer these questions, thinking of people like you. We'll use
your testimonials to help paint a better picture of what makes SKI BUMS such a great
group of people!

Your testimonial, if selected, will feature your
first name, plus an optional "tagline"
that says a little more about you.
"I'd gotten a little tired of trying to meet people in bars and clubs, so I
decided to try SKI BUMS. I hadn't skied since I was a teenager, but I found
lots of other green circle skiers. By the end of the winter, I'd made a number
of great new friends. The bus ride home from Hunter was a total blast."

-- Darius, 26-year old grad student, Manhattan

"The girls in SKI BUMS rock. After boarding together this winter, we've
continued to hang out and become better friends, and we can't wait for next

-- Sue, graphic designer and food fanatic, Brooklyn
