Goin' back to Colly. Colly. Colly.

Yeah, I think so.

I'll be skiing mainly Mary Jane 2.21-2.27 and Copper 2.28-3.7 or so.  I could definitely be up for a side trip or two.  I think a few of the Bears that I've skied with before might be willing to do it again and I'm always up for meeting new peeps, so get in touch with me in this thread or by PM and let's go ski!

Woooooohooooooo!!!

 Hey BF.
Great to know that you're getting your game on again. Woooooohoooo Indeed.
Sorry to say that I'm heading back home on the 20th, or I'd do my best to join you for a day. Snow out here has been superb for the past few days, and it looks like more fresh is on the way. Good fortune for you and the other peeps. Enjoy amigo.

Thanks Bazzer.  Usually I pick my dates in the Fall and that's it.  This year I've tweaked, re-evaluated, tweaked again, totally scrapped and then reclaimed my ski time.  It's been a long held goal of mine to get to the point where I can ski 100+ days a year.  At first it was just because I love to ski so much.  Now I'd like to double my days on skis just so I could ski with more peeps.

So sorry we're heading in opposite directions at the end of the week.

 Do you remember the way?  The Breadcrumbs you left to find your way "home" last year when you came back to Michigan are probably all gone.

So you are resolved to go ski the hard pack or slush of the west instead of coming to ski the powder at Blue Knob this weekend. Well, I don't blame you one bit. Have fun, hope to ski with you again sometime.

'Tis true LHC.  In order to gain the Rockies I had to sacrifice Blue Knob....... and I'm not even joking.  See post #3.  If I skied everywhere and with everyone that I'd like to I think I'd be up to at least 400 days a year.

Have big fun at BK.  I'll be thinking of y'all.

...and an easy sacrifice to make, one I'd make in a heart beat. We've had the Mid-Atlantic Gathering the weekend after Presidents Day for the last three years and I see no reason to change that in the future. Keep it in mind if there's a hole in your schedule next year. Good to see your back chasing your passion. I hope it means that other areas of your life are squared away. You know, 400 days a year is a pretty good goal. It can be done if you count night skiing separately.

Since when is a "night" considered a "day"?  (And Otis Day and the (k)Nights don't count...)

 Hey BF.
Must be Kismet.
We're getting hammered with fresh out on the I70, and I think things should be spectacular on your arrival. Live large amigo.

Think I could convince the locals to fund a six month long vacation?

Copper today!

Jacks at 8:30, hope I can find it.
post #27 of 108
 If we don't get there on time, start without us. 
post #28 of 108
BF - I'm assuming that you're doing Bumpapalooza at the Jane this week.  I may try to get out for one of those days, but it depends on work.

Let me know if you want to sneak in a Loveland day or two again.  I've mostly been at LL this season, but I have the Vail resorts pass too (mostly been skiing Breck on that one).

The fact that you're at Copper today tells me that things have already changed up slightly.  Do me (us) a favor and post up your day-by-day schedule as it stands right now and keep it up-to-date.  Thanks.

That's what I should have said.  I hope no one was waiting at Jacks.  I got stuck in I-70 gridlock and didn't get to Copper 'til 10am

 Bumpapalooza is on the agenda.  For sure let me know when you'll be there.  I'm not sure if I'll be able to hang for the whole thing.  I'm really feeling my lack of conditioning at the moment.

I'd like to do a Loveland day or two but I've been discouraged by the reports I've been getting on the conditions.

I guess this is an odd year for me regarding making plans and sticking to them.  I'm thinking Vail or Copper tomorrow then on to Mary Jane 'til the weekend.  I'm trying to leave things slightly open ended so that I can take advantage of better conditions or other opportunities.
