First Chair: New Member Introductions  

post #1 of 1238
Thread Starter 

Hey all.

Didn't see another place to really do this, so I figured I'd just spend my first post giving a little hello to everyone here. Just discovered the forum, looks to be a place that I'll be spending a lot of time!

I'm looking forward to getting to know everybody

Okay... back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Okay, I tried it. Did you hear?

Seriously, I play in a local band, mostly covers and such; it's acoustic versions of everything from modern rock, classic rock, folk, alternative, etc. Bunch of stuff. Loads of fun.

Greetings all

I m from Nor*CA and will ski Tahoe all season long. I once *another lifetime actually* was a ski instructor at Heavenly -- but that was before I really learned how to turn

Welcome AllMTgirl
Happy to see you around. Epic can always use a few more Chicks & Divas!

You'll find tons of Tahoe friends! enjoy!

Welcome all you newbees......nolo hit it...this is the best ski site out there (though there are a few folks in the universe that would try to dispute that)!

Get yourselves out to one of our gatherings. The official one in Cali....and/or mine in Colorado. You can find the info in the "meet on the hill forum". The more Bears you meet....the more fun it gets!

Pleasure to make your acquaintance, allMTgrl

Uncle Louie, sounds like a game-plan-and-a-half. I'll check out the meet section.
post #16 of 1238
Welcome Rir and Allmtgrl

Rit definately check the meet on the hill section as Uncle Louie said.

I had my best season ever last year by meeting and skiing with many people from this board and I actually liked all of them. I'll be doing more of the same this year and hope to make your aquaintance.

Cali for life!

Welcome to the both.

post #18 of 1238
There are some real experts on this site (self not included), so ask away, cause, chances are, some of 'em have been there, done that.

First Chair: New Member Introductions

I've been lurking for a while and have finally decided to post!

Just moved from Tahoe to Aspen and I know nothing about the area!
post #20 of 1238
Tahoe to Aspen? Slumming it, huh?

Welcome to Epic, there in no valet parking.
post #21 of 1238
'Nother newbie. Looking forward to hanging out & learning.
post #22 of 1238
Hey I got an idea(actually stealing an idea from Alpine Zone)

Let's make this a sticky and call it "new members introduce yourself " thread

Cool huh?:

Motion seconded.

I frequent www.shoforum.com, ("ritmusic2k" there as well, if there are any SHO owners poking around here) who has a whole forum devoted to member intros. I was looking for one here; gave up and banged out out this thread.

Let's get this thing all stuck up!

From one newb to another, welcome and howdy.

Title update.
post #27 of 1238
I don't think I've ever introed myself either. Darn in anyhow

Anyways. I live in the wonderful state of Montana.
Been skiing since I can remember (which my dad tells me I was about 3 when I started). So a little over 20 years now.

Grew up skiing Big Mountain and I can remember when it was Chair 1 (before the quad), there was no back side and skiing it when it opened and the night skiing lights made the shape of a Seal which used to be Big Mtn's logo (and I think they still do).

I mostly ski MT, but do make a trip to other places at least once a year.

I used to be an instructor at a little mom & pop mtn called Deer Mountain in Lead, SD (anyone heard of it?) worked there for about 4 seasons, moved to Terry Peak (just down the road from Deer) and worked 1 season there. Moved back to MT and let all my certs lapse.

I'm in the MT National Guard, and did a active duty stint too. Got to ski in Korea.

Sorry bout the bio. Just a little background I guess..
post #28 of 1238
I never did intro myself properly either. Live in Beautiful British Columbia (home mt is Sun Peaks). I have frequently benefitted from the wise sages on this board!

So... Hello!
post #29 of 1238

New kid on the block

I am also a new member on this site. Have been a guest last year and just now became a member. Find all the info most entertaining and informative. Ski about 15-20 days a year at a little place with called Brian Head which is in southern Utah. It has fantastic snow, great people and only 3 hours from my home in Henderson, NV. Rumor has it they are going to have a high speed quad and invest about 9 million in a couple of more lifts in the next few years. Am a 60 year old who thinks skiing is the best individual sport ever invented.
Will be visiting daily as it is about time for snow in the west.

Hmm. There is snowheads for us Brits, you know

But this is a great site, too :

I like the idea of an introduce-yourself thread, BTW. I've made only a few posts, here - so I guess I better say Hi, as well.
