About Us

The Longest Running Ski bus in the Seattle Area

Burien Backsliders Ski Club is a dedicated group of members who enjoy eight consecutive weeks, from January through February taking a charter bus to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort. The bus leaves from Burien and makes a stop in Auburn but members come from all over to catch the bus and partake in sitting back and relaxing with a cup of coffee in the morning and a glass of wine on the afternoon ride home. So if you enjoy snow sports, camaraderie, but hate to drive snowy passes, please join us!

Membership Benefits

Snow Activities

Love skiing, snow boarding or snowshoeing, Crystal Mountain has you covered! Advanced, Intermediate or Beginner our members cover all the bases, you will find great people to ski along side. Discounted ski tickets and passes are available or if you have a season pass that works too! And best of all there is no waiting in long lift lines on Wednesdays, ski right on the lift. More bang for your buck!


We provide eight consecutive trips on Wednesdays (weather dependent) beginning the first week of January. Often times if funds are available and conditions remain favorable a ninth trip will be added as a bonus to your membership. Our pickup location is in Burien, but many people come from other areas so there are carpool opportunities. And then we also make a stop in Auburn to pick up more people on the way. You'll ride in comfort in a deluxe motor coach with climate control, AP system, reclining seats, tinted windows, restroom, overhead luggage racks and under coach area for skis and snowboards and a area to keep your beer and wine cold. No more getting out to put on snow chains ! And you don't have to worry about finding room to park, you will be delivered right up front in Lot "A" so no more waiting for shuttles.

Make Friends

Lifetime friendships have been made on the Burien Backsliders Ski Bus! Many of our members spouses and friends are no longer interested in skiing but being a member of the Backsliders you will find others to share your passion for skiing and you won't be alone on the slopes. We also have an annual business luncheon in November with fun door prizes, so old friends can reacquaint before ski season starts and meet new members who have just signed up.
