Another Spectacular Event

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
My wife and I had such a great time at the ETU. Unfortunately we can't go to the main event (ESA), because of a conflict. I got to discuss the possibility of yet another big event with Ric, Bob and Tom. The timing for such an event would be in late February or early March. The three cabelleros have expressed a willingness to conduct another session, depending on interest. I think that PSI-Man would probably be willing to attend and give us an on snow demonstration. The purpose of this post is to solicit any interest in attending another great chance to participate in some quality instruction. Don't be concerned with venue at this juncture. If you have any desire for an additional teaching experience, please indicate this, as well as if weekdays or weekend are best. I'm sure that we can develop a good lodging and dining experience for the attendees. You can also PM me or reach me at my winter hideout at Bretton Woods at hld12@worldsurfer.net. I urge you to respond if you have the remotest inclination, since this can only happen if we can elicit a significant level of interest. Best wishes, Harvey Dickstein

Depending on Where, When, and Cost I'd be interested. Weekends would probably be better for me then...

Are we discussing another East Coast evevt?

I know we'd be interested Harvey though I'd be surprised if we could work it out logistically. At that time of the year, it would have to be a weekend event--probably restricted to driving distance in the East.

Event Location

RiDeC58,
The location of the event could be East Coast, but it could be anywhere. It will depend on the demographics of the responders and where most folks want to have it.

I'd be interested in another East coast event.

My demographics (and snow outlook therefore airline tickets) vote for FRSW in early March.

I'd go in a heartbeat weekend or weekdays, east coast. Am not available Feb 18-March 4th (in Vail - Yippee!) weekend of 5th-6th would be difficult because of that as well.

I would definitely do another eastern event, particularly if the following conditions were met:

1.) Linda came ;-) (that's a quip for those who were in my group at the ETU)
2.) It was held at an ASC mountain (it's crazy for me to keep paying lift tickets when I have this pass)
3.) It was held on either a weekend I could break my reservation for (assuming I have one) or one that I have nothing planned for.

How's that for a tentitive yes!

Killington is a good host mountain for mid-late march. Joe, I too have a pass and a house there!

maybe someone needs to make a "flawed poll"?

Great idea klkaye on the poll! How about this, you create it and I'll be the first to call it flawed (or vice versa if you prefer.)

Sharing a house with a bunch of us is a great idea!

Front Range Spring Workshop

A definate maybe.

It would be great if you guys could see what Stowe is like when we have the whole mountain open! You know, that thing about let the mountain be your teacher?

Negative comment on new poll idea

Rather than starting a new poll, it might be better to just let this thread run. We need to get as much feedback as we can as quickly as we can. I still don't know what FRSW means.

I would be about 90% certain of attending if it could be an easily accessible place. West or Northeast, either is Ok with me as I would have to travel regardless.

Wish I didn't have a conflict with the ESA--it sounds great! (And I'll already be in Breck until Jan 22nd).

Ah, skiing, again, don't you guys ever let up ...well, ok, if you insist.

How about the middle/end of February?

The CO coaches will have generously travelled to 5 events by the end of January to bring the events to us. Would it make sense to bring one to them?
post #19 of 24
cgeib, it makes sense to me, and it was behind my original suggestion of another Front Range Workshop. So, my first vote of Copper in March.

It does seem rather slanted, though, with FRFW/ESA/Gathering, tiny ETU holding down the right end of the scales quite courageously. Also, FRSW would really turn into a makeup session for ESA, somewhat diluting ESAs impact and draw?

Clarification

Upon further discussion with the coaches, the event would be another ETU. Since Stowe is already such a good connection, it could be a likely candidate, although other sites are not ruled out. So come on all you Easterners or those in the Midwest who have any interest, let's hear from you.

An ETU like weekend event at Stowe or another Eastern area would greatly increase the likelihood that we could attend.

Sounds great to me!
February works best! It could even be midweek if it were the week of the 16th - 20th.

If we did it during this week, maybe we could also add a jr. program for 12-18 yr olds.

Other that this week it would have to be a weekend for me.

I'd like to see the "Spring" edition at another area...there is more of NE to explore. Central/Southern VT or Areas in NH (Jackson area) might be a good option.

March 11-12 is out for me...that is the weekend of the Hannes Schneider Meister Cup race at Cranmore...I volunteer for the New England Ski Museum.

A second ETU... Hmmm. After we've all gotten our 'gruuvs on' out west... Sounds like a great idea - How about Sunday River? Eight great mountains: Oz has some great gladed runs, steeps and bumps, White Heat can be a blast, and there is everything else - except crowds (those mountains really spread the crowd around excellently). The snow is usually the best to be found in the Northeast (with the possible exception of Jay Peak - which ought to be another contender).

These places are all a little harder to reach, but considering the goals for which we attend, I'd think we'd want to be on the most interesting mountains around - and ones with the greatest likelihood of having good snow...

Just our $.02 - We're definitely interested.

Great idea Harvey. My only complaint about ETU is the timing -- it's end of semester time for me, not to mention getting ready for Xmas. So I'm sitting here with an enormous stack of exams to grade, and what do you think I'm doing instead.....
