Good afternoon, skiers. Just got done with the second day up on the mountain here at Bachelor. Continued snow accummulation and temps in the 20's, what more could ya ask for. I'll be back over in Hood River mid-week, and am looking to ski Wed and/or Thurs at Meadows. The forecast looks solid.

Well, my boss is an a$$hole and won't let me have any days off this week.

Actually I have a different boss almost every day, and they're usually quite nice.
That is, they're nice if I show up at their house, and don't go skiing instead.

But this coming Monday, the 27th?
Oh Yeah!!
Good soft cold snow

My knees are exploding. Had to take a few days off to recover. The skiing on Bachelor has been very good, lots of cold snow, OK visibility and no crowds - yet.

Last Weekend at Skibowl was very chill - no lines, handful of folks on the uppper bowl and very good powder on Satuday.

Don't let the secret out

Anyone willing to deal with someone who has never skiied on the west-coast sometime between XMas and New Years?

I won't demand to ski with you if it will wreck your day - I just need some guidance on where things are, and it would be cool to do the first few runs with someone.

I fully expect I can still ski at the high-end of the intermediate level.

To clarify for everyone; I ski, and am not worried about handling intermediate terrain right off the bat.

I just expect my form to be less than stellar.

I'm skiing Meadows on Thurs with a couple of work buddies, but I'll also be open starting Tues of next week. I also plan to board mostly, which puts me in the intermediate level too. I'm diggin' this boarding as a nice change from skiing, which I've done all my life.

I have yet to make it this year, so I'll be a Summer's worth of rusty.
And I feel old and out of shape, so if you hold me up in the morning, I'll let you make it up to me when you have to wait for me to rest by the early afternoon .

But, as I said above....

Eric, are you gonna stay around long enough on the afternoon/evening of the 27th for us to meet at the pub at Govy after we get done skiing Meadows on Monday?
