"Fun" at Sunday River

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
To "celebrate" the end of a horrific year, as well as Mark's birthday+Christmas, we did a one time "splurge" last week and stayed at the Grand Summit.

I was excited, since it meant ski/in ski/out on to my favorite warm-up trail, Moonstruck. [img]smile.gif[/img]

Too bad it was closed, as were many of the other trails.

The consolation prize: the room had RSN TV, which featured clips from some 1930s, 1940s ski movies, as well as some TGR film clips. And they had in room TV internet access, not that that's important!

Heading out to dinner on Sat. night, we were informed that we just missed the shuttle bus!

But so it happened....
That weekend there were reps from BMW giving out free test drives. A friendly chap approached and asked if we wanted to take the x5 to our dinner spot.
Mark's face lit up like a child on Christmas morning!

Had to convince him that no, we do not need that car.

So despite less than optimal snow conditions, and me, painfully breaking in new boots and footbeds, I guess you can say that a {sort of} good time was had by all! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Glad to hear you had a great time. How many days do you have in so far?

Tell Mark Mark to forget about the BMW. They're way too proud of those cars.

Get the new, Saab 95 Aero. A great car for the money.

Nuthin' wrong with a BMW X5 if you can afford to pay for it and maintain it. The V8 models can tow 5 or 6,000 pounds... No stinkin' Saab can do that. It'll take you to both the supermarket and the ski resort in record time. The cargo area is ample storage for soccer balls and little league gear. Even better, it's not a Volvo Cross Country.

My only complaint is that there isn't enough foot room to drive it wearing ski boots.
