Introduction to EpicSki regional and resort threads for 2015-16 - A Beginner Zone thread  

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Are you interested in finding someone to ski with in a specific region?  Or want to ask for a little planning advice but don’t want to start a separate thread?  For many places, there are on-going regional threads for 2015-16.  Mostly for the U.S. but there is one for Europe and others could be added later.
 
The easiest way to find ongoing regional threads is to go to the home page of Resorts, Conditions & Travel (under Mountain/Resort).  Go to the home page and roll over text in blue to access the link for the topic of interest.  You can use the menu bar Forums drop down or the Forum Nav drop down at any time to change sub-forums.
 
 

 

 
For Gatherings or on-going resort threads, go to the home page of Getting Together, Gatherings (under EpicSki Community).  Roll over text in blue to access the link for the topic of interest.

One way to get to a subforum is to hover over Forums on the menu bar to get to the drop down.  Resorts, Conditions & Travel is under Mountain/Resort.  Getting Together is under EpicSki Community.

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.

Another way to learn about potential ski destinations are the Trip Report threads.  That forum is under EpicSki Community.

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.

 

2015-16 Taos weather and stoke

2015-16 Mammoth discussion and meetups

2015-16 Steamboat trip dates

2015-16 Sun Valley trip dates

2015-16 Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee trip dates

2015-16 Alta, Snowbird trip dates

2015-16 Squaw Valley/Alpine Meadows

 

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.
