Sadly couldn't make ESA this year - Denise had a back op that's left her with a season off :( (prognosis good so ESA2012 is on the cards \o/ )
Still, the silver lining is that work just said they will be sending me to Portland (Oregon - I'm told you have more than one) at the end of February - so I do get to do a bit of skiing in this season.
Now of course I need to know where to go. We (work friend and I) have decided to take the 26feb - 6Mar so... any suggestions?
I like Snowmass, Snowbird, Whistler and Big Sky - great places with lots of room. I guess I'm trying to avoid places that are a bit too small for a week-long stay.
Certainly I'd be looking for some good steeps and maybe some kind of guide program (even like the Whistler ski-esprit or Extremely Canadian thing which gets you all over the mountain).
Oh - and if you have any suggestions for 'basic but not grungy' lodgings for a couple of guys sharing...
Even better would be if there are any meetups in the area that we'd fit into...
