Vail Dec. 21-29

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm heading out to Vail for 9 days with Bazzer Jr. (aka The Kid.) Mrs. Bazzer will also show up 1/2 way through our stay, but she prefers snowshoes and xc skis so we'll save on lift tix for her.

I'd love to put faces with some of the names I've seen her on Epic. (Strato, faisasy, Roy4President, Wannabe, dp, cgeib, ssh, TheGnar, CoSkiGirl, SkiNebraski, NativeVailGal, DonDenver, and many others.) Might be nice to meet some of you in the flesh, make some turns, and share some refreshment. I posted a similar thread prior to a trip last year and am pleased to have met a few Bears on that occasion, all of whom I can now call my friends.

The Kid and I will be skiing from Dec. 21st through the 29th. He's 15, and would be delighted to meet some skiers/boarders near his age. We've got some friends in the area, but are always open to making more.

We've spent a fair amount of time skiing at Vail, and would be happy to show any visiting/wandering Bears around a bit. Of course, we'd be equally glad to learn some more about the place from any locals.

I'll probably bring along a SLR rig and would be more than willing to dedicate a few runs to making action shots of any friendly Bears. We'll have wheels for a few days and will probably pay a visit to Beaver Creek for at least one day.

We will not have reliable internet access at our lodging, so if anyone would care to hook up, let me know prior to our departure on the 20th and I'll send along my cell phone number via PM.

Excellent! I'll be up in Vail for quite a bit of that time starting on the 24th. Hoping to ski Vail the 24-26th and then over to Summit county for the 27th-31st. I'd love to hook up and do some turns with you and The Kid. Shoot me a PM when you get a chance and we'll make it happen.

Way cool. Vail website shows major terrain opening. Should be nice and bumped up when we arrive.
PM sent.

Hi,
Will be in the the EpicPass area on Dec 19 - Jan 3rd. Open to any resorts, but most likely will be skiing Vail/Beaver Creeck as we are staying in Edwards

Howdy stroller.

Might be a nice opportunity to meet up and make some turns. PM sent. BTW, just looked at the Vail website. Good amount of terrain is open already, and vast majority may well have the ropes dropped before we arrive

Caution…meeting some of us in the “flesh” could be a huge disappointment .

Certainly would like to meet up at Vail or the Beav. Travel safe.

That's why I frequently have on hand a clever disguise; false nose/glasses/mustache.

Bump before I loose interweb connection tomorrow night.

Between old local friends and new Bear acquaintances it looks like our dance cards/ski buddies gang is getting quite full. Way cool. Any other Bears that might care to hook up, please respond to the thread or send off a PM in the next day or so.

Loads of snow reported on the NOAA and Vail sites have us quivering in anticipation of making turns, and meeting new friends is always a major plus.

Bon voyage, and trust that The Kid and I get to share some hill time with y'all.

I'll offer up if anyone needs to grab Bazzer after he looses connection send me a pm and I'll get a message to him.

Bazzer, looking forward to next week!

Thanks for the commo assist COSkiGirl. Trust we'll meet next week.

PM sent to you SkiNebraski. Looks like major snowfall heading that way. May be a bit hairy on the ride in on I 70, but after arrival in Vail Valley all should be grand. I'm not well schooled regarding texting, but Bazzer Jr. will be on hand to explain the 21st century to me
