Would this be on a weekend or a weekday? If it's mid-week, I vote for a Tuesday....

December IS tough. We have ESa the weekend of the 13th and Christmas/ New Years at the end. That doesn't leave a lot. Let alone the weather concerns, December runs the full range of conditions from No snow to dumpage.

This looks like an interesting adventure. Unfortunately, it would take my whole skiing budget for the season just to get to beautiful downtown Ludlow, and then I'd be outta money.

Something to look forward to another time, I suppose.

For those interested, we can revisit the logistics after Thanksgiving.
I'm sure we can squeeze this in somewhere before say Jan 11th...

MC,

I'm gonna try and combine a ski/cycle vacation Mothers Day weekend @ A-basin....so if that works out, we'll maybe see you out your way

I'm usually done by mid-April, but who knows? Have to get permission from mama before I can use "her" weekend, though.

Mothers Day at the Basin rocked last year. Hope to make it again this year too.

Do you get to New England at all (except for the Stowe ESA)?

I'm hoping for the amount of snow we had last year again

Its a little tougher since my sister in law lives in Colorado.
I made a trip to Kton/okemo for Bumpphest 07, but that's not likely in the cards for me this year.

I was thinking about seeing if Volklgirl would be interested in a road trip to NE.

Maybe I'll throw my Atomic Race Stock SG's (only 208's) in the car too

Bump....

As we are getting closer to December (would seem to be the prefered month) let's try and iron out a potential day plus a fallback.

For me Dec. 6, 7 or 21 would seem doable. (Epic ESA Stowe is the 13,14 weekend)

Weekday would also work for me (actually prefered) but lets hear from others to get the most participation

This would be fun. I haven't skiied the 218 Rossis in a decade or so. I'd have to see if Whiteroom can make my boots fit them.

edit: they won't even fit in my Yakima box, or in my car!

Gonna be tough for me..I will be working extra those weekends because I am taking off the 13-20 to go to Steamboat.
post #46 of 51
Yeah, I would be up for it as well but those dates don't work. dec 13-27 at the boat.

Will Okemo be ready for us if we moved it back farther...say the
Nov. 29-30 weekend? Or would that be equally bad for everyone because of the holiday???
post #48 of 51
Flawed. It should be in April. Retro days usually mean daytime drinking... and somehow this always seems the most appropriate in the spring!

Thats when we usually had it, warmer weather, longer days.

Looks like we will do both this year, worse things can happen.

Thanksgiving weekend? you are a braver man than me. I will never travel on that weekend to ski again.
post #50 of 51
I like April as well.

I almost never ski before December these days. I have a family/guys ski trip going on the same weekend as ESA Stowe.

I don't think that we should wait until april to get some non ESA attending eastern bears together in VT though. Any other opportunities/suggestions?

Anyone have thoughts on now doing this sometime in January?
