Thanks Posaune regarding the infor. @ the North West Ski and Rec Club. I have in the past entertained the idea of joining, and maybe know a couple of members currently in the club and some who were in the club but have dropped out for various reasons.
I am fortunate because most of the time my "ski schedule" allows spontaneity with little advanced notice, so I leave on a whim ... usually during the week ... at the mtn in 70 minutes, and particularly at Baker that all is a good thing. However, given the above, sometimes the not so good thing, and no, this is no proposition, (lol), is that I almost always ski solo (no time for other arrangements), which I don't seem to mind. It does allow me to ski what, where and how I wish, and I would always rather be on the slope than inside the lodge. But there are times, particularly now that perhaps I am getting to a more comfortable ski level, (all relative lol), that I might consider the club for that single purpose - to network with compatible skiers who have essentially the same or near-same set of skills as me (if not better cause I love always trying to improve - one of the great things about the sport as I see it is that ceiling is OH SO VERY HIGH, - and of being pushed and I would relish any off-the-cuff ski advice offered as I am self-taught with nary a lesson). FYI: At Baker, of which I love, I generally prefer skiing off chairs 1 and 6, and Gabl's - although sometimes Gabl's will eat me up and wear me out. There ya go.
