Being a Member
Buckhorn Ski and Snowboard lodge is a privately run cooperative member facility. Anyone can apply to be a member however, membership requires an annual fee and annual maintenance hours as well as participating in social functions when possible. The lodge has been around since 1948 and to keep it going we need everyone to pitch in and foster the great community we strive for. In addition, the lodge operates in the Angeles National Forest, off-grid and has very specific rules and operation guidelines to keep the facility and members safe. Potential members must show a willingness to help as well as keen interest in the outdoors and making Buckhorn last for generations to come.

We welcome members to join Buckhorn. We have a selection and probation process as we want to make sure members are aware of the responsibilities and requirements and what is available to each member. Before applying potential applicants are required to attend orientation. These are usually held once a month. After attending an orientation, you are welcome to visit as a guest for a probationary time period (typically one year), ideally helping out with work at the lodge when possible. New members must be approved by the board of directors.
New members will be in a probation period for the first year and membership can be revoked at any time.
If you are unable to attend on the designated orientation day we will make an effort to accommodate outside of this date. Email us to coordinate a day/time. We will not allow orientations to anyone who just shows up on the property. Please do not drop by without an invitation or you will be turned away.
