chrisandy, I'll definitely do that, and thanks for the "inside connection!" I'll probably be dropping off a pair by the end of the season if not earlier.
I did a few trips with Emilio's last year that were fantastic, including one to Stratton, and if my rides peter out by the end of the season and I'm still holding on to my passes at Hunter and Windham, I'll definitely go on their bus again. It was just a tad annoying to have to get up at 3am to get on the subway to catch the bus, only to have the bus pass right by my apartment in Inwood on our way north. Could have gotten an hour and a half more sleep!
Heh, don't get me wrong, I'm super grateful for any day on the snow I can get, and those bus trips are a great backup plan if I'm unable to hitch rides and help pay for gas.
PM me if you ever hop on one of their buses, I just might get on board as well.
