Gay Travel: Hitting the Ski Slopes

Published Date Author: , November 5th, 2011

Ski BumsThe Ski Bums have announced their 2012 skiing and snowboarding season and the theme this year is “It is time to power down,” a double entendre meaning it’s time to power down your gadgets and it is also time to power down a mountain.

Ski Bums president Chris French says when new members were asked last year why they joined the group, he heard a common theme. “I just wasn’t meeting the kind of people I wanted to meet.” These days with people increasingly finding each other online, the Ski Bums are hoping that gadget frustration will bring new members to the adventuresome group.

Ski Bums is the world’s largest LGBT club for skiers and snowboarders. They began hosting trips in 2005 and today have about 800 members from the United States, Canada and Europe. They are headquartered in New York with chapters spread out across the country, including one in Washington.
