The Official Snow skiing thread
 
I'm a season pass holder at Meadows and looking for someone to ski\board with. I'm an advance intermediate skier and get a bit tired of skiing by myself sometimes. No skiing for me this weekend but the weekend of the 18th looks good and possibly I can get away during the week every so often. Thanks!

Oh yeah. I'll go witya.
I describe my skiing skills the same (adding that I feel old and out of shape).
This is the first year in many that I have not bought the regular Season Pass. I pinched $ this year and got the $99 Night Pass instead. Night Skiing starts at 3pm. I could meet you up there the weekend of the 18th.

A weekday after the 18th, I can make, I've got some weekday deadlines to meet before then.

Edit: No board for me, two sticks only.

Would be in for some weekend skiing... No pass for me this year, but need to get up and hit the slopes.

Cool-I can't seem to night ski much anymore as my night vision is failing me. Anyway, have people to ski with would be AWESOME! Perhaps the weekend of the 18th?

I would like to get back into it; it has been a few years.

I used to ski 50ish days a year back east, but haven't skiied in the last 3 years. I was an advanced-intermediate skier.

I think December is out from a financial standpoint, but I would love to go with you guys at some point. Don't worry, I wouldn't hold you back. :D

Come tear it up in January then!! We have a cabin in Rhododendron so access to Meadows is about a half hour-Now I'm really getting excited about skiing-I have been up three times thus far and two of those by myself-Its fun, but the fun factor is much higher when I can watch one of you stick a helicopter landing....

I keep telling my brain I'm ready to do a little helicopter jump, and my body keeps saying "oh no, you don't, you old fart" :D

I'm less than 1/2 hour away from Meadows on the North side of the Mountain. The extra cost of a day pass is (should be) out for me on a weekend with the crowds and limited ski time, but a day pass on a Weekday after the 18th, where I can get more of my money's worth would be cool for sure.

Sounds good as I would love to get up there during the week-Give me a bit of notice and I will take the day off. A Friday or Monday would be perfect and I will just stay at the cabin an extra day

Apple Jam 12-08-2010 09:05 AM

Monday, Dec. 21st ?
Monday, Dec. 27th ?
I can plan easy, If I write it in my schedule book, before I fill that day.
The Fridays this monthe are likely too close to the holidays, for the crowd isuue.

In. Will be down at Bachelor before xmas, but am up for hitting the local mountain between that and New Year's. I am also known to skip work at the last minute for exceptional-conditions up on the mt.

Heli Skiing is on my list, too.

I'll see you in the 'copter over Canada/Alaska just as soon as the rich fuckers around here start spending big money again :huh, like they did a couple of years ago when I bought my bike :wink:.

I found a place up in Washington that offers 7 heli rides/runs for $350 and they supply the equipment. I'm going to try and do in in March-If anyone is interested in joining me, let me know
