An idea for the next season....

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I’ve had this thought for a while now… What if we (the members of this forum) plan a trip for the next season, somewhere convenient where we could gather as many members as possible. Of course the details would have to be worked out but I think it would be a great opportunity to put faces on so many names we’ve kept in touch with over time. What do you think?? Personally, I would love the fun but most importantly, I’d have the pleasure to finally meeting some of you.

If you find my idea too outlandish … well it was merely a thought.

And this is crazy, but how about if we call it...I dunno...a "gathering" or something. Great thought, Euclide. I don't know why this hasn't been brought up before!!! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

actually, Euclide, this is a three-year-old tradition. There was a gathering of bears last jan/feb in utah, one the year before in fernie, b.c., and one the previous year in tahoe. it IS a great idea and YOU SHOULD COME TO THE NEXT ONE, the location of which has yet to be determined.

Glad to see I'm not the only one nuts here Can you even picture how much fun this would be?! I used to belong to a ski club. Few members but we had fun skiing together... EpicSki is a ski club if you think about it; why not gather everyone on a trip?! And this doesn't have to be the only getaway . Fun, fun fun!!! Skiing and apres- ski(ing)...

Ryan... I didn't see any announcements concerning the above trips. Before I injured my knee early Feb. I had planned for a trip to Canada which I had to cancel . I'm thinking... if I had decided to join you, maybe I would have never had the accident. I slipped on ice -- something I would have never had to worry skiiing Utah or Colorado.

Nah, there's always the chance you'd've broken it at Snowbasin, widely known for its deadly ice chunks.
Euclide, if you check the Meet-on-the-hill forum here, you will see much information on various get-togethers. Each gathering thus far has been widely reported on in these forums, particularly the meet-on-the-hill section.
Stay tuned, specifics for the 2004 get-together will be posted (probably) (relatively) soon.

Ryan has set you right. The informal committee of three is beginning to organize in the background. Soon the debate over location will begin. Will it be the PNW, the Co. Rockies, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, North Lake Tahoe, South Lake Tahoe, So. Cal., Utah or Canada???

Don't know?? But that is what makes this fun. When the thread goes up in the On the Hill Meetings advocate for your favorite place.

Why do I suspect "SoCal" won't make it into the final consideration round?

In addition to the big gathering, there are regional events. This year us Nor'easterners met at Sugarbush. But even more important is the Academy, your chance to take lessons with our marvelous instructors. Check instruction section for details!
