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!

Ken

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.

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.

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"

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

Heli Skiing is on my list, too.
My LOTTERY LIST .

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

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
