Snowbirds Ski Mom Blog Encourages Women to 'Drop the Kids, Hit the Lifts'- December 4, 2013

December 4 2013

SNOWBIRD, UT – A group of local Utah women have banded together to form “Skimums,” a meet-up group for mothers to ski together at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort, without kids or husbands, and are inviting other women to join them.
“Work, housework, volunteer work … women can come up with a number of things they have to do (usually for others), but we seldom make time for ourselves. Skimums at Snowbird is designed to do just that,” said Skimum Paula, who started the group in 2012. “Our tagline is ‘drop the kids, hit the lifts.’”
Skimums meet every Wednesday, beginning Dec. 4, at 9:30 a.m. at Gadzoom chairlift (conditions permitting). Most are intermediate/advanced skiers. There is no schedule or agenda after meeting at 9:30, except to stop for free hot chocolate at some point during the day. Some Skimums stay just a few hours, and some stay all day.
“Skimums seem to come home in a really good mood,” said Skimum Paula, “No one can explain it – exercise, camaraderie, lack of oxygen, lack of teen angst, who knows!”
Skimums write a blog, found at, where readers can find more information about the women, and read about the Skimums’ adventures last season.
“The bottom line is that when women give a little to themselves, they’re able to give more to others,” said Skimum Paula.
