I'm sorry I missed your post.

I did see several posts in the ESA threads about folks meeting up to ski. I posted one of those myself, and ended up spending an enjoyable day Sunday skiing with leadfoot.

Guess you missed mine, too.

So dare I ask: how was ESA?

Thanks...

The whole thing was a big disaster.... lots of money.... far more expensive than private lessons in Europe.... nearly as expensive as privates in Oz for real people and twice the price I pay there...

Wow, it's strange, cause I managed to meet up with people on the Sunday before the ESA, and the days after it. (and I managed to arrange accomodation, transportation, meals out, drinks, etc for disski after the ESA)

Disski, with all due respect, if you have criticisms, suggestions or
recommendations for ESA, please direct them to ESA via the appropriate
communications. I don't think the forum is the appropriate place to make such comments as ESA was a rip off. I don't know the whole story and I don't want to. It appeared that you were unhappy about a number of things and voiced your opinion. It appeared to me that Weems and others responded to your issues. I don't see anything in your posts about that, only complaints.

I know that several ESA participants offered you a place to stay when you had none. I don't think the ESA participants are as unfriendly as you portray them.

From what I experienced it was a pretty damned friendly bunch. I'm terrible in rooms full of people where I don't know anybody. Just awful.

By the end of the clinic I felt like I'd found a room-full of new friends.

Hey DAWG, maybe next season, after your paw gets healed up, you can bring you Machetes over to Snowbowl for some turns, and given the 48m radius of the McH, I guess that would be BIG turns.

VA... Sounds kick a** to me... I'll try to grow my beard into an "impenetrable ice shield" but I'm not sure that gives me enough time.

48m radius on the McH? Brutal... How about the McG... Please say 42.

Silly me, I thought you said you had Hucksters like mine. The McG has a puny 19m radius. Might as well get a pair of them fokin' Metrons.......NOT!

BTW, a long beard is not required to ski The Bowl, only to earn a nickname like "Father Time" from ski patrolers.

So if I get a pair of Metrons in the off season, are you revoking the invite: :

I think I might have bent my Volants on the season ending yard sale so I definitely need some new skis... Even if I didn't it sounds like a good excuse to tell the Mrs...

Metrons are too easy to ski. You want something much harder to carve...
