    This. At Bachelor last 3 days also. And, yes, very good snow! I was gonna check in to see if there were any adv'ers in Bend who wanted to ski, but I got caught up with fambly the 4 days we were there.

    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 :D.

    But, as I said above....
    I *think* mtbdemon will be doing Meadows on the 27th also, we'll see if he confirms here. Get on the "bus" with us WB!


    matloik, you just can't seem to fit into my work schedule......
    But you're a boardhead now, anyway; so :flip you, you boardhead punk..... :lol3
    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?:freaky

    Face of Buttercup!!:rofl
    What a stud!!

    So, I'll try and get up there early Monday. Look for the Big Red Chevy AppleVan in the Main Parking lot. Ya can't miss it. Really.
    They just added a new US Cellular cell tower this last summer, so my cell reception ought to be good in the parking lot now.

    WB? You got a Subaru to get yourself there Monday morning, dontcha?

    There's a joke in there, somewhere.
    Maybe it'll come to me when I see the truck Monday.

    I've been sick all week, sleeping for about 12 hours a day, and spending only 4 hours in the garage. :lol3

    Hopefully better luck in 2011.
