You can put me down as the ALT for Northstar.

 

And uh... can I get in line for Gaffney's Squallywood tour?  ;-)

post #3 of 62

I thought I'd been told I was doing one of the Alpine spots. But happy to abdicate if someone else wants it.

I knew there was someone I forgot....You are IN!

 

 

If there is anyone else I forgot, sorry. I will update accordingly.

Gathermeister, I have a suggestion:

 

you might direct people in the Gathering info thread to take a look at this group thread.  Or send PM's out to the Gathering roll call list.  I haven't yet gotten in the habit of checking this group regularly fro new info, and I'll bet I'm not the only one.

 

Daron Ralves and Scott Gaffney as guides?  Awesome!  I think we should get GNAR points just for that.

I have been sending group PM's, I rushed to get this up this AM and didn't get a chance.

You can lightly pencil me in for Northstar... if we have good snow I can give one hell of a tour... Plus I may be able to work something out with patrol...

post #8 of 62

I should be able to do N-Star or Heavenly as I have passes there.

Have you in for Heavenly.

 

Are you good for Kirkwood?

post #10 of 62

Why is DeVre the only one with a "yes, THAT"?

Better buckle my boots extra tight to hang with this crowd.

Arguably the best ski photographer in the world. Countless Powder magazine covers and photo shoots all over the world. Here are some examples hoe full he will bring his camera along and take some photos of the group. 

post #13 of 62

Understood.  But I don't think there's likely to be multiple people named "Hank DeVre" around.  Wayne Wong, by contrast, might be more duplicative.

Robb Gaffney at Squaw ! Holy Moly.

 

Are we skiing to get the most GNAR points!           Btw, I have the latest copy of Squallywood.

I hereby declare a moratorium on man-ass.

post #16 of 62

Are any of the guides taking an intermediate to easy advanced group?

 

My wife, Trish P, is likely coming but she won't even try to keep up with

us crazy ones.

post #17 of 62

Terp, I'm sure we'll have something for your wife. It was explained to me that we'll have different groups of different ability levels. I'm sure Daron Rahlves will be taking out a mellow group. And since The Dad won't be BN, he's not likely to get to GNARly.

And there is only one "TheDad"

My girlfriend will also be among the mellower group.

I might have to volunteer to take all the hot, mellow ladies out. I wonder how they'd feel about a hot tub you can ski to, and has a clothing optional policy? Hmmm.  drool.gif

Robbie Huntoon has bee added as a guide. Robbie was a pro freestyler back in the day and was a stunt double in Hot Dog: The Movie.

post #24 of 62

This is going to be some Gathering! Phil and I plan to ski Alpine, Mt. Rose, Northstar and Squaw. My brother may be meeting up with us one of those days too. Really looking forward to it!

I just hope the Gathermeister can keep all these promises.snowfight.gif

post #26 of 62

GM, you can put down Hairfarmr from Snowbomb down as a guide for Kirkwood

post #27 of 62

Perchance Mr. Wong may be able to bring out some of those Anton Skis to the Gnarthstar day. If we're still serving up man-made groomers those suckers will be Full-On Vince Vaughn with a side order of Disneyland.

post #28 of 62

Where the demos were originally to be spread out over the different resorts, The Gathermeister confirmed with me that we will be having all the demos on ONE day, at Mt. Rose on Tuesday. This will allow the Bears to test all the 2013 skis that some of us have been drooling over. 

post #29 of 62

Looks like an AMAZING Gathering. Kudos to the Gathermeister for putting this together and for the great guides/reps who have agreed to volunteer their time and energy. I am EXTREMELY jealous, and if this kid gets here ANYTIME in the near future, the DSloan family will have to make the trip. MrDSloan would definitely benefit from the likes of this crowd (a frightening thing to say, I know . . .).

Wow, amazing.  There's some serious guides here.  I really don't know what they're doing with the likes of us.

Does that mean will be modeling new ski gear also so we look good for the photos?

Which guy was he a double for?

 

I think we're going to have to put together a file for those who want to brush up on our illustrious guides.
