2006 EpicSki Academy--Salt Lake City Program Announced! - Page 2

post #31 of 84
aha, didn't know that the Gathering is after the Academy, suddenly things look much more interesting!

Thanks Coach and Fox. (Fox, cheers also for the reply to my snowheads PM, I'll try to work out what I need to do and will let you know shortly).

Not recently, but he has taken on a major role in charity work in London for a year, and this is eating up most of his time.

Ah. I'm not surprised.

With the Fox Hat (and Spyderjon)
How long could you put up with me?
I cannot see me skiing with you two (way too fast) but it would be nice to have some friendly faces around to have a beer (or two) with in the evening.

Hello all,

I will be attending the Epic Ski Academy at Snowbird this year and have a "FREE" bed for someone that would like to share at no cost for lodging. It's at the Cliff Lodge for 29 Jan - 3 Feb. The room has 2 queen beds, bath and small beer cooler (I mean fridge). The room is free to interested parties but keep in mind that I'm a dreaded SMOKER who ski's. Let me know if anyone's interested and I'll probably post the same offer for the Gathering.

Still wrangling

I've given up on ESA East for this year, but I'm still trying to wrangle a way to do ESA Utah.
If I take call on Saturday night, I could have Sunday as Post-call and hopefully leave the hospital by noon. If they let me have Monday and Tuesday as two of my 4 whole days that I am allowed off for the month of January, then they wouldn't count as "vacation" days. But that then means that I'd work the preceeding 4 weeks with only 2 days off the whole time

Trying to find a flight to SLC on Sunday that allows me time to get from the Hospital to Pitt airport, and doesn't involve too many connections where they can lose my skis or boots.: Arrrgggghhh!

Somebody tell me.....What would I miss on Sunday if I don't arrive until 9 or 10 pm???? Do airport shuttles to Snowbird run at that hour or would I need a car?

Advice?

If you are arriving after the Welcome party, no problem. We'll have your packet for you to pick up at check-in (assuming you're staying at Snowbird). If you're not staying at Snowbird, we'll meet up at the Tram dock Monday morning and I'll help you find your group.

Okay Great.Thanks! My flight isn't due in to SLC until around 7:30 pm on Sunday. With baggage claim and catching a shuttle I'd be surprised if I get to Snowbird before 9:30 or 10pm.
Deposit check is going out in tomorrow's mail.

Anybody want to share a room ???????

Linz is also coming out, but I'm not sure how long she'll be staying.

Cedric, WTFH

Will be great to catch up. Adrian and I are going to be hanging around Park City until the Friday following the Gathering, but we won't be at the Academy. And we will have a vehicle for verturing out of Park City, eg. Snowbasin. Not sure what size vehicle we will have but should be able to squeeze 3 in the back seat for day trips.

What are the best ground transport options from the airport to Snowbird? I'm landing at 4:50 PM on Sunday.
post #44 of 84
Canyon Transportation is Snowbird's listed shuttle company at 800 255-1841. I believe they have a kiosk at the airport. The shuttle runs from 8 a.m. to midnight and departs every 20-30 minutes from the airport.

Perfect. Thanks!

Oboe - I think she means she has to find a "locum tenens" person to fill in for her at work before she knows if she can come.

I don't actually have a room yet - haven't made the reservation. I was waiting to see if someone else NEEDED someone to split costs with first. I actually have an offer from someone who is "already" splitting costs, but thought I'd see if I could do the most good by splitting w/ someone who is coughing up full price and doesn't want to.

However it works out, I am REALLY looking forward to meeting folks and having a blast!
post #49 of 84
locum tenens? New one on me.
post #50 of 84
That arcane term has been explainted to me now by Dr. RiDeC56. I'd guessed that "locum" was some Aussie expression meaning "locumotion" [mispelled].

Guess I have no suggestions for locating a locum.
post #51 of 84
I thought use of "locum" as "replacement", usually used in regards to a professional position, was a universal one in the language?
post #52 of 84
Certainly used in Uk & Ireland.
post #53 of 84
It is in common usage here, for doctors, dentists, pharmacists, vets, librarians... not sure about lawyers though.

it's OK - Fox threatened to make Daddy Fox (what is HIS name fox ? so far we only know Hugh's name?) come & look after me if I get desperate....

As of tomorrow I will hopefully be employed so we can start hunting for my replacement

Academy or ???

My family just approved my winter escape. Now where???

I am thinking about the Academy, but the Straightline Adventures sounds like fun also.

Has anyone done both? I am interested in opinions of each.

Obviously the Academy has the best instructors available, but the people doing Straightline sure know how to ski.

Any advice?

Thanks
post #56 of 84
skion, do you really have to ask? You know what we'll say here...
post #57 of 84
I thought maybe someone knew something about one of the other camps.

Maybe I will try a new post to see if someone has experience with the other.

Won't be anything like what they say about ESA on TGR.
post #59 of 84
I have the same problem as skion...

Straightline is more expensive but flight tix from London to France cheaper...

what to do, what to do...
post #60 of 84
Come to the ESA. Really.
