Today marked the end of LGC. We had a small group out at Loveland today and had some good snow along with some cold and lots of wind. Fun none the less!

I would like to thank Jim for his organization efforts this season. It's not an easy job to pull and hold this thing together. A big "hat tip" goes off to him.

I'd like to thank the guides (who each made it out one day, Icanseefor milesandmiles, Rick (Fastman), Bong and SugarCube. Yep.....my terrific wife was promoted to guide status for the "all K2 chick group". GO NANC.

Most of all I'd like to thank those who came out. Without all of you, it would have been "just another ski day".

Enjoy the rest of the season if you aren't done yet, or have a good summer if that's what applies.

Could be a whole other thread, but I'll let it go hard as that may be

Looks like I missed another good time.

I would like to personally Thank everyone that came out, helped guide and played on this thread.

I met many new people and renewed friendhships from seasons past. I'm a richer person for it.

I would like to make a special mention of Mr Vertical, Uncle Louie, Sugarcube, DonDenver, Bong, spdskier, Madmike and anyone I forgot for making enough discount Tix available for anyone that needed them.

Another hat's off to the same clan and Rick for patiently guiding people around unfamiliar terrain and making them comfortable.

More thanks to Rick for trying to help get the Nastar thing going at Breck, but both days we had scheduled to try this were POWDER days:

As a matter of fact, It was a POWDER trip and conditions were fantastic

Thanks again to all who played in any capacity and hope to see you on the hill next season.

Jim & Annie

I heard a rumor that this is the last year for an "official" LGC? Any truth to the rumor?
post #583 of 594
I certainly hope not. We purchased Colorado passes for next year Saturday!!
post #584 of 594

No more LGC

Me too (and my hubby)! I just read UL's post about ending LGC...very disappointing. Glad I was able to attend one day. I had a great experience and our group had a fantastic guide (Sugar Cube)!

I have to say that I admired the focus on safety though and wouldn't have hesitated to go to another gathering because of that focus and the general welcoming atmosphere. The one day was a blast!!! So, again, Jgiddyup, Sugar Cube, UL and all of the other folks I met, it was great! Hope I get to hang out with you again some time!

The end of LGC as we know it?
Wanted to post this in the other thread, but it's CLOSED!

D-Day: War's over, man. Wormer dropped the big one.

Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Otter: Germans?

Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Bluto: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...
[thinks hard]

Bluto: the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!
[runs out, alone; then returns]

Bluto: What the #*%@ happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my #ss from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer...

Otter: Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.

Bluto: We're just the guys to do it.

D-Day: Let's do it.

Bluto: LET'S DO IT!

Bummer. Just read about the LGC events. Just as Ashley and I are moving out there too; crap! At least we got to meet some awesome people and be a part of the final LGC. For some reason, I have no doubt that finding bears to ski with in Colorado after we get there won't be too hard.


4 weeks and counting!

Don't worry Brandon you'll have plenty of company out there and Annie & I as well as others I'm sure will be visiting during the winter without a doubt.:

It appears that it will not be LGC as we know it, but I prefer to think of it as the seed for amazing Bear GTG's for many years to come.
Heck, look what happened to the little group at Copper back in January

Here's my pix from the Breck outings in April:

post #594 of 594
Better hurry if you're gonna hike. We are melting fast this week.....flood warnings in effect :. It pains me to see my mtn turning brown, but at least it was an awesome season.
