The 2009 Epic Ski Gathering - Page 11

post #301 of 305
We did pretty good at the gathering at Kirkwood in March 2007.  Fewer as the week progressed and we went to Alpine and Squaw.

We never did line everyone up for a picture, though most bears seemed to be enjoying themselves..

The daily number is usually around 20 - 25 and that splits into a few groups and sometimes two groups make part of a run together then head off somewhere else.  The Intermediate groups are somewhat smaller....usually 3 - 4.

The biggest DAILY number was April 6, 2007 (I remember that date for some reason) at Let's Go Colorado III.  There were 41 of us.

So I thought about this number and went back to view the photographic evidence.  I think UL may have underestimated the total number for this bluebird day at Vail:

 UL & SC rented out Game Creek lift to better move the group about:

Truly impressive was watching UL organize and lead all these folks…not one accident 

Great day.  A significant day.  One huge lunch!
