Start Your Own Gay Ski Club!
Don't see your city listed? Consider starting your own ski and snowboarding club! It may sound daunting, but who ever said getting what you want is easy?

Ski Bums' French told RealJock he couldn't believe how helpful the other gay ski clubs were when he first started Ski Bums. So send an email to a few of the clubs asking for pointers, and see what happens. Remember, any movement is made up of a lot of dedicated individuals working together.
