Introduction to EpicSki regional and resort threads for 2015-16 - A Beginner Zone thread
There are a few more ongoing threads for 2015-16. See Post #1 for links to Getting Together and Resorts where the lists can be found.
As an aside, there are tips about getting around EpicSki for those unfamiliar with how online forum software tends to work. Even for those who have experience with other online forums, it can take a while to figure out where stuff is located because EpicSki have been evolving for over 15 years. Note that text used as a link appears in blue.
The list of ongoing resort threads for 2015-16 is easy to find at the top when you go to Resorts, Conditions & Travel. As of mid-January, here are links for the destination resorts that have meetup threads.
Note that anyone can start an on-going thread. They are either in General Skiing (under On the Snow) or Getting Together (under EpicSki Community). The idea is that if people post their trip dates, then they may discover others who will be at that resort at the same time. Always fun to meet people in person for a few runs or a chat after skiing is over for the day.
There are also ongoing regional threads for popular American areas such as Tahoe, Utah, Colorado, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast.
There are a few Gatherings planned for Feb-Mar 2016. While most people who attend a Gathering are advanced skiers, intermediates are welcome and will find people to ski with for at least part of the day. Unlike a ski club trip, you make your own travel arrangements and can attend all days or just one. People who coordinate a Gathering are volunteers.
