  • Fill out ALL the information, including the emergency information (someone not on the trip).
  • Pay by credit/debit card online (in full for day and New England overnight U-drive trips) or send a check or money order for fly trips to the trip leader, payable to the Cape Cod Ski Club. DO NOT MAIL TO THE CCSC P.O. BOX!


Where do I get the day trip bus?


Day trips are with Bloom Bus Lines. The bus loads at the Park and Ride lots at (old exit number / new exit number) Harwich (exit 10 / 82), Barnstable (exit 6 / 68), and Sagamore (exit 1A to Visitor's Information/Parking for Bus). The bus departs:

  • Harwich (exit 10 / 82) at 4:30 AM
  • Barnstable (exit 6 / 68) at 4:50 AM
  • Sagamore (exit 1A) at 5:10 AM

Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time so you are sure to have time to stow your gear and get settled before the departure time. If you miss the bus, try to catch it at the next stop. Fly trips have their own bus line and pick-up schedules.

Fly trips have different bus schedules. Trip leader will send pertinent information to each registrant.


What can I expect on the day trip bus?

  • Stow all gear under the bus (skis/snowboard MUST be in a travel bag). There is limited storage on the bus --- just bring what you need in the bus. Ski boots are not allowed in overhead bins!
  • We suggest changing into your full ski/snowboard clothes at the mountain
  • No smoking or e-cigarettes / vaping on the bus
  • Use headphones with your i-Pod or personal entertainment device
  • Quiet time for sleep until about 7:30 am
  • Complimentary donuts / muffins served --- bring your own beverage!
  • Be considerate when reclining seat if someone is behind you
  • Make a new acquaintance on the bus and make a few runs or your first lift ride with them
  • Arrange to have lunch with Club members
  • Skiing and riding with a group is fun, invigorating, and safer! Get your Cape Cod Ski Club pole flag!
  • Upon arrival at the mountain, stay on the bus until the trip leader returns with lift tickets if you need one; you will receive your ticket as you leave the bus. If you have a pass, you can get off the bus.

Question:  What if I have to cancel or the trip is cancelled due to insufficient sign-ups?

If you cancel your day trip reservation 7 days prior to the date of the trip, you will get a full refund of the bus cost in a credit to your member account. Cancellation on day trips less than 7 days before departure or no-shows results in a full forfeiture of bus fee for the trip. If a trip is cancelled by the Club due to insufficient sign-ups, you will receive full credit for the trip.

Overnight and fly trips have varying cancellation guidelines. Visit the trip page or ask the trip leader.

All refunds will be credited to your member account. You can apply your credits when you pay online by checking the appropriate invoice and payment on your profile page. If you have a credit and are mailing a check for a fly trip, or have enough credit to pay in full, notify the trip leader that you have a credit to apply and send whatever remaining amount is due. Member credits can be applied to any future CCSC trip, event, or next year's membership dues. You can see your Invoices and Payments (credits) when you log in and click the pending balance message. Overnight and fly trips have varying dates for cancellation and monetary penalties; the trip leader will know the specifics. Overnight and fly trip refunds will not be processed until post-trip reconciliation is complete. For more information on our cancellation policy see the Club Policies.

Refunds will be made by check upon request (or for larger refunds in general). 

Question:  What's different about overnight or week-long trips?
  • For trips with bus transportation, see the trip description or trip leader will advise and departure times vary
  • If it's a U-drive / carpool trip, you make your own transportation arrangements
  • Other than obvious personal packing needs, not much is different from a day trip
