Thread Starter 
In speaking with Phil this AM, it looks like theres a demo day at Elk. I am going and I know Phil's in, who else? I e-mailed Elk to see if I could get a list of which lines will be there.

Well now, with my work travel schedule that week, I may be able to do this.

Did Phil mention something about a bump clinic?

planning on elk, too.

Hi, I was just browsing and caught this thread. I too will be up there for the CAD/ demo day, hard to pass-up a cheap lift ticket.
This being my first post here and all, I can't say that I've gotten to know any of you by reading all your banter, however I'm always happy to share a lift up the mountain. I can usually be recognized by my green pants and some type of volants for sliding. Probably not near first lift since I end work and get to bed usually around 1 a.m, though I anticipate numerous runs prior to the lunch hour. later v.varmit

The snow at Elk was ok this past Saturday. Some trails had great snow while some of the others had pretty thin cover. The moguls were big and humbeling (I can't ski moguls). It is a fun mountain, I bet it is great to ski there midweek.

I can't make it on Fri. I should be there Wed if anyone's interested.

I'll be with Phil, I'll be wearing black jacket and either Orange or Brown pants (if it's real warm, then brown), Silver helmet and Red, Hot rod boots. If you PM me, I'll give cell #.

Any response on what lines they will have there? I have never been to a demo day but I plan on going to this one. I figure I will take advantage and try some different skis since the ones I am using now I bought without trying (having never bought a pair of skis before, I just went on advice from ski shop... ). Would be interested in finding out what they'll have so I know what my options are...

updated forecast

Forecast for Elk is looking up. I searched a few weather sites and it looks like the forecast is 30% chance of showers and cloudy. There is a good chance of snow showers Thursday night.

The Weather Channel has it at 60% rain. Before I go and buy tickets...Do we have a cut off day?

If you go on the Elk site , they are sayiing "periods of rain" not sure what that means, If you guys want to call it at the end of today, that's fine with me. If it looks bad, I'll go to Blue Thursday. Any one in if Elk doesn't work? I don't mind some lite rain, but I don't want to drive 2 hours to get soaked/
