Official Gathering of the Barking Bears
Don't ride single, come on out to Utah and join the fun at the 2010 Utah Gathering. The festivities begin January 31 at Solitude and continue Feb. 1-2 at Snowbird, Feb. 3 at Alta, and conclude after skiing Feb. 4 at Snowbasin. The Gathering Roll Call is at 40 skiers and counting. There's a rumor that Bill Kerig is going to do a private screening of The Edge of Never for the Gathering assembly on one of the nights. It's shaping up to be another great occasion for meeting and skiing with the people you enjoy chatting with online.
All Smiles at the AspenSnowmass ESA
About 50 participants enjoyed exceptional weather and each other's camaraderie at EpicSki Academy at AspenSnowmass January 10-14. First-timer blandry writes in the Trip Report thread, "This is by far the best skiing experience I've had. Weems is unlike any instructor I've had in the past. I'm heading out for my fourth day in a bit and I'm thinking about how much fun I'm going to have rather than drills, instruction, etc. And you were right; this is a great group of people to spend time with, skiing and socializing."
