It is with great pleasure that I announce the
2009 Epic Ski Gathering in Jackson Hole, Wyoming
February 7th – 11th, 2009
I have a suggestion. Please note your comfort level with respect to your level of skiing. Feel free to post your ability keeping in mind the simple catagories below. This may prevent someone from ending up in a group that is well above their ability level.
Either post your preference on this thread next to your name, or feel free to PM me if you prefer, and I'll keep a running list.
All Mountain- They folks can go anywhere, both on and off piste. YOU FOLKS DO NOT NEED to indicate your ability level.
Expert on Piste- You can ski all inbounds terrain but prefer to stay on groomed trails and bumps with perhaps a few ventures off the edge of the trail in lightly treed areas. (Indicate EP)
Intermediate-Your preference is mostly on groomed Intermediate terrain with perhaps a venture onto short Intermediate bump runs, short (easier) groomed expert runs, and maybe a few turns just off the edge of the trail in the powder.(Indicate INT)
Blue/Green-You like cruising on tougher green and easier blue runs, not ready to attempt any powder or bumps. (Indicate BG)
Keep in mind......No one has any intention of suggestion what group you should go with.
That's up to you, but this will make it a lot easier to split up at the bottom.....rather than find there is a problem.....when it's too late!
There is a good chance that every goup will have a chance to get off the beaten path a bit if they wish, as I am told there is terrain there at EVERY level to get off piste.
Let's keep this thread for ROLL CALL only. Discussion of anything relative to The Gathering should take place on the "official" 2009 EpicSki Gathering Thread.
