2014 EpicSki Gatherings List of dates?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

It has come to our attention that we area starting to organize the Gatherings for next season and it may be nice to have a list of dates so that we can try to avoid stepping on each other's events. 

If you're a Gathering coordinator, please list the dates of your GTG as soon as you know it, as well as a link to any thread or group associated with it.

 

Gathering List

  • East Coast
  • Blue Knob
  • Utah
  • Mammoth
  • Europe

Although I am not an official organizer, I think I can say with relative certainty that the Mid-Atlantic/Blue Knob Gathering is the weekend after Presidents' Day. So, in 2014, that should be 2/21 - 2/23/2014.

JamesJ, please feel free to correct me!!

D, basically correct at Blue Knob in recent years. 

 

But back in past Mid-Atlantic's also been on President's weekend. I know

since another club of mine always goes Presidents Weekend. 

This one should have good flexibility since everyone drives & don't fly.

 

TC's idea is great. Getting some dates worked up allows some wiggle room here.

We usually try to do the Mid-Atlantic Gathering the weekend after Presidents Weekend because the crowds are smaller and the snow is typically still good. In 2012 we held it at Timberline, WV and did it the weekend before Presidents Weekend primarily to avoid conflicting with the Epicski Gathering at Tahoe that year. This switch did not seem to cause us any problems. We could flex again if necessary to avoid a conflict in 2014. We will probably not set a date and venue for the Mid-Atlantic Gathering until coordination with core participants in the Fall and by then should know the dates of the other gatherings.

There will be a New England gathering, either in Northern Vermont of Maine in one of the first two weeks of March.

Add this list to any Diva gatherings and you get a very full season.

-I'm definitely in for the Mammoth gathering.

-Utah is also up there as a strong possible.

-Europa my Europa, ai-ya-yai, when will I be seeing you again, I do not know and cannot say.

This place seems to have gathering fever these days.  Glad I'm not the only one who starts thinking about the next big ski trip practically before the last one is finished.smile.gif

As instigator of the Euro trip, I'm afraid there's no date yet (nor a destination: besides the French higher areas and the Northern French Alps, people are lobbying for Austria an Italy now - it's European comprimise politics, I love it!). I'll keep reading this thread, obviously, and I will opst a date as soon as there is one.
