Seconded

Wow, this sounds great.  Phil and I are working out some details on how long we can stay on March 1st but would love to do this if we'll be around for the bigger portion of the day. 

Thanks for the hook up @Bob Peters 

 

@tetonpwdrjunkie , who wouldn't want you?  I had a great time skiing with you the last time we were there.

Count me in.

I'm in.
Response from the AMS,(altered mental state), Cats I'm coming with has been confused so I can't add them without a Ouija Board consult.

Here are a couple of updates:

 

1.  @tetonpwdrjunkie has generously agreed to serve as one of the instructors for this shindig.  This is outstanding news because he knows this mountain as well as anyone alive.  

 

2. I've talked with the senior manager of the mountain sports school (Kathleen Roe) and here is how we would like you to confirm your interest and attendance:

 

Please send an email to Kath at this address -  kathleenr@jacksonhole.com - stating that you want to join and will be there.  We really need your help with this so that we can schedule the number of instructors required for the size of the group.  Please email Kath before 5pm on Saturday, February 28.

 

Once you've emailed your interest, you only have two more things to do:

 

A. Stop by the Mountain Sports School lesson desk and purchase for the $25 "Tips & Tours" ski school product for EpicSki group members for Sunday, March 1.  The MSS desk is located inside the doors on the ground floor of the Bridger Center Building, which is adjacent to the base of the Bridger Gondola. It would be great if you would buy this well before the meeting time - you can buy it the day before if you would like.

 

B. Show up in full gear and ready to ski by 9:00am on Sunday, March 1.  We'll meet in the Private Lesson Meeting Place, which is located right outside the ground floor of the Bridger Center, just across the sidewalk from the lift ticket sales windows.

 

Here's the Bridger Center Building:

 

 

The door just behind the head of the guy in red with the green helmet is the where you go through to get the ski school lesson ticket.  You can buy your lift tickets at the windows under the sign that says "Lift Tickets"  Heh.

 

The Private Lesson Meeting Place is about twenty feet to the left of where the guy in black is walking next to the ski rack.

In also.   Will follow instructions and send email, but not arriving until 28th in the evening, so will need to pay fee Sunday morning.   Assuming that works okay.

post #37 of 43

Email sent

post #38 of 43

Email sent...  I'm not getting in until the 28th as well, but I PM'd Bob Peters who said that the logistics shouldn't be a problem.

post #39 of 43

Also not getting in until late on the 28th, but definitely in! When I asked my friend if he was interested his response was 'can we do that every day?" ;)

 

He also had this nugget:

Any idea exactly where to meet and what "THE GATHERING" is?  We're not going to end up sacrificed to the ski gods are we?

 

:D

Hi, all.

 

This is just a quick update.  A good number of you (nearly 20) have emailed Kath Roe that you're joining.  That's a GREAT response and we're really excited about it.

 

Kath is sending each of you (who have replied to her) an email with a few details.  She's asking that you stop in the ski school lesson desk by 5pm on Saturday to confirm and buy your $25 lesson ticket.  We know that some of you don't even get into town until the afternoon or evening, so that's fine if you come in on Saturday - oops, I meant SUNDAY morning.  We just ask that as many of you as possible get the ticket by Saturday afternoon.

 

The second thing is that she's asked - and I've agreed - that we have people collect at the private lesson meeting place at 9:20am (rather than 9am) with a goal of heading to the lifts at 9:30.  This is to avoid a lot of congestion in the private lesson meeting place at 9am.  

 

For those of you who can't stand the thought of not skiing for that 20 minutes between 9am and 9:20, you do have an option or two.  It would be very difficult to ride the gondola and be back down by 9:20 (although it CAN be done), but what you COULD do is take a couple of warm-up laps on the runs accessed by the Teewinot chair, which is adjacent to the base of the Bridger Gondola.  Those are very easy, groomed runs but it would at least get your glutes activated before you met up with us.

 

Any questions?

 

See you all on Sunday.

I went to the ski school desk today to pay for Sunday's Tips and Tours and the guy behind the counter didn't really know how to process things and twice had to go to "the back room" to get more info. HOPEFULLY I was the test dummy and things are now figured out.

I'm sorry.

 

I'll try to help get them clued in tomorrow.

Bumping this because I missed the change in start time and I figure others might have too.
