YAHOO! I have been a passive spectator to this terrific website for quite some time now, and thought I'd step over the line and commit, odd sensation as it may be. Anyway, I have officially joined and look forward to loads of fun, and yes, even recieving great advice from time to time. I suspect I will be better at "taking in" such advice rather than "dishin' it out" lol. As selfish as that may sound it is not inmtended that way, just aware of my limitations and respectful of yours. Best regards to all, mtbakersnow ... or ed

Welcome!
I'd begin by warning you about the contagious Philitus, but if you've been lurking, you already know.

Have fun!

I don't think either one is Grant; look at the spelling.

I agree, rarely happens, hurried and/harried at the same time, didn't spell check, apologize ... as it drives me crazy too. Actually won a spelling championship ... albeit, it was about 40 years ago.

Ed,
If you're interested in Epicski then you might also be interested in the Northwest Ski and Recreation Club. It's a bunch of skiers who like to get together and recreate. We meet for refreshment in Bellingham on the third Thursday every month and the club sponsors trips and events. PM me if you're interested in finding out more.

Seems to be the common consensus.

For some reason I thought you lived in the Seattle metro area. Your information about your location just says Washington. You're more than welcome. Heck, all of the Epic community is welcome as long as you're 21 or older. If you don't live in Whatcom or Skagit county it's a long haul for club night, though.

Hey, when the strawberries are in season around Bellingham can you send me a couple flats? All we get here are the flavorless California styrofoam imitations.

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.

You'll find plenty of folks in the club who like the same terrain you do, and there are a few who will amaze you with their chops.
