I know I said I wasn't going to go..but.. if it is going to be a day like last time, I could be pursuaded. Salters has $18 ticks, D&Q had $15. Anyone?

that would be this friday, right? I am definitely in then! Are the tickets all day/night? I may have to skip classes for this one instead of heading up there around 11.

IIRC, but you might need to double check..ticket is an 8:30-4:00.

Wait, Wait!

According to the Elk site, they ARE having a winterfest day this Friday, 2/4, sponsored by Buckman's and Nestor's, but not Salter's, with demos. Salter's one is 3/4. Tix will be the normal $30 discount at Buckman's, I guess. Haven't called Buckman's yet. So I AM up for this Friday. This is confusing. Think I'll go do my taxes. Evan.

I see Blue still has Tuesday nites for $16 from 4:30 - 10:00 pm. All you have to do is give them a business card.

Where did you see that, the two sites I look at only mention show showers on Friday? If there was a nice snowfall Thursday nite, then I'd make it for sure.

I called Elk and they said there are $15 tickets at Buckman's. I am so in, looks like I will be listening to the "Wing Bowl" on the way up.

I bought my tickets today, $15 at Buckman's. I hope some of you can attend, let me know if anyone else is going.

I wake up in the AM feeling fine, thinking maybe I can make it, but I get worse as the day goes on. I just can't shake this thing.

Phil what are you taking? When I am ill, it is usually the opposite, I feel terrible in the morning and better throughout the day. Nyquil usually does wonders for me before bed, in the morning I take Tylenol cold and flu and it gets me through the day. Keep me posted...

Like I said to Phil the other day, the weather dies and wil change! That's an old post bud. OK, that said, I'm wih Evan, I am confused. Can someone list the target dates with the mountain? FYI_ I am skiing Blue on 2/8 in the AM (for Blizzboy) it's my birthday and I am compelled to ski

Buckman's is out of the $15 tix for Elk on Fri 2/4, so I'm just going up to Blue and use my pass. Finn: I can meet you on 2/8.

Finndog you have the same birthday as my grandmom! My birthday is three days later on the 11th.

Looking at the weather, it seems to be a bit sketchy, I still plan to ski on 2/8 but if it's raining, I'll pass. I would love to ski on Friday but I am swamped here. I am skiing Holiday Valley, NY 2/13-15.

Finn: Blue was pretty nice today, a little crodwd with a couple of buses, but soft snow & good cover. I'm pretty sure I'll be there Tuesday 2/8. Evan.
post #20 of 23
Elk was fantastic yesterday! I had a blast and the conditions were pretty good for how warm it got. It was crowded for Elk but that means a 5 min wait line for lifts. Not like a 30 min wait line at Blue that I have experienced. I wish some of you could have made it out.

Blizz: So what did you demo?
post #22 of 23
Evan, I should be going tomorrow. I will PM you by the end of the day.


Blizz- what did ya' like?
