Here's the report from the last one, wish you were here
To add to Jimmy's post about gathering at Timberline, WV ski area, you can get $38 lodge rooms that weekend at nearby Canaan Valley Lodge along with other deals:
Didn't know if there was a 2011 version of this thread...
Timberline, WV Snowy Luau is this weekend, Mar 18-20, 2011
Looks like there will be skiing and if the weather is reasonably dry and spring-like it will be a lot of fun. I hope to ski there on Sunday, believe a number of others here will be there all weekend. Good times.
Chip offered to ride Canaan's lift to ski Weiss the weekend before last but I couldn't get the family motivated Sunday morning during the rain. White Grass has 22"@ 4000ft. and 25"@4300. Weiss should be about the same or better. Are you going to make it down on Sunday? Here's a link to some video chaga posted a few days ago:
For any non-DCSki Bears, meet-up times are 10 AM and 1:30 PM (Sat, Sun) at the bottom of the hill at the Ski School meeting area (uphill side of the fence, close to the Silver Queen lift.) (Sometimes we get lazy about the 1:30 meet-up.)
As of last weekend, there was still plenty of snow in Cherry Bowl glades to keep beers cold.
(Remember that Timberline runs on Island Time and about as efficiently as a third-world government. Same as we ski.)
