Where will the Bears meet?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
This is about the only way to get some feel for where people want to meet pre and post (and pre again and possibly post?) Academy who will not be travelling to the Gathering in Jackson Hole. While I'm sure this poll will be FLAWED , it is a useful measuring tool. (Did I say "tool"?)

I think we'll just go with majority rules, and close the poll New Years Day (THE best day of the year to ski, by the way, as all the Drunks are hung over and not on the hill!) What ya think? Good? :

Just can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friends nose....but you CAN pick a place for Bears to meet!

There's only one day that applies for me, so I really wanted to just voted for that day - could have done with a N/A for the others.


P.S. I vote for Alta on the Sunday.

I know it's still early, but I might get to play Tour Guide Ken. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

The final day has Christy leading the Canyon's tour without Ken! What the hell is that about . . . . <font color=red>BONNI?</font>

1. I want to point out that I didn't flaw your poll, so it's really not official.

2. I'm not going to skew the poll by taking it as I'm not going to the Academy, but I would like to meet up with you guys while your here for a beer or dinner or sumptin.

3. Have fun!

Sumptin like ski-een perhaps?

So, if you would also like to ski with the group, cast your vote. I'm not going to the Academy either, but I would like to ski with the Bears whom I regularly spend time with.

I didn't vote either, as we can only join you for 2 days (Sun prior, and Fri after), and didn't want to skew the days we aren't going to be there. We had planned to ski Snowbird on Sunday, to get a feel for where we'd be skiing the rest of the week.

Casey (and Bill)

Anxiously awaiting mid January! Gotta ski! Hopefully some snow locally soon (enough to ski!)

Casey & Bill,

Should we pencil the two of you in for Snowbasin on Fried-Day?

Shooting this to the top...only 31 days left to vote! :
post #13 of 21
I am wondering about the desires and intentions of the people that have voted in Bonni's pole and those that may wish to ski with the Bears before and/or after the Academy. So far, twenty people have voted.

For example, at this stage of the game, The Canyons has the most votes for Saturday January 25 with six. This means fourteen people voted for (five) other resorts.

<font color=blue>I ask the following question so I know whether I should waste my time trying to get group discounts on lift tickets:</font>

If Resort X gets more votes than Resort Y, but you cast your vote for Resort Y; would you ski with the group at X or thumb your nose at the group and ski at Y, the resort you voted for.

I will thumb my nose in your general direction, IG, and taunt you a second time.

There are still a fair number of days left to vote. Are you planning on taking a group cat skiing, IG, and if so, what day so that we may plan on Tour Guide Ken to be with us at The Canyons, since it has many votes and I am sure we'll be there at least one day?

Subject to the will of the Bears, this is what I envision:

  • Saturday January 24th. - The Canyons</font>
  • Sunday January 25th. - Powder Mountain & cat-skiing on Lightning Ridge? BYOC</font>
  • Friday January 30th. - Snowbasin</font>
  • Saturday January 31st. - The Canyons</font>
  • Sunday February 1st. - Tie for first between The Canyons & Alta/Snowbird. Tie for second between Brighton & Deer Valley.</font>
I might be wrong, but I'm thinking that some of the Bears skiing the first weekend won't be skiing the second and vice versa; thus, skiing The Canyons twice may be acceptable to the group. It would be great if the interested parties would post their tentative plans for the respective weekends. Otherwise, a new poll that includes a choice for Not Present, Nor Accounted For may be in order.

No one has voted in a looooooooong time, so I guess here are the results.

Saturday and Sunday both tied for the Canyons, and since I won't be able to ski Saturday (24th), ya'll can pick a place. I also won't be skiing on Sunday (Feb 1), so that is open too. Post here to get together?

The rest will be as follows:

Saturday Jan for further discussion

Sunday Jan 25th....The Canyons with Tour Guide Ken

Friday Jan 30th....Snowbasin

Saturday Jan 31st..Solitude

Sunday Feb for further discussion

Would you like to take charge of meeting places, Inspector? I'm unfamiliar with the best places for meeting. I'd sure appreciate it!

Okay, what's the scoop, Bonni and IG? We were penciling in the cat-skiing, then checked this thread, and now its not there! (Gasp!)

Is anyone still planning on going cat-skiing? If so, we'd like to join you! That would be me, sheskis and Mr. Sheskis. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

We'll leave the little darlings [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img] with Gramma that day.

Let us know if its still on! 22 sleeps til Utah...


PS: 9 feet in 8 you think any will be left? [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Inspector Gadget has graciously offered his services to take over the meeting times, places, etc. that this thread addresses. I'm very grateful that someone local is running with this ball, and I can't think of a better person to hand off to for this event.

Thanks, man! You're the greatest! Take it away! :
