Shoot, I have to read all your posts. I've been away from this thread for a while.
In the meantime, my employer handed me the vacation calender for next year to pick my vacation. I have a few days to decide.
I still WANT to go out west.
I still have NOONE to go with.
I still don't know WHERE exactly to go.
And I still don't know when.
Can you guys (and gals) mention some of these gatherings again - where and when - filled with people that would gladly adopt an orphaned solitary skier?!
I'm a youthful 46 y/o so I'd probably get along well with youthful people from 30 to infinity!
