Epic Ski Academy - A fresh thread - Page 4

post #91 of 101
All right everyone--I'm down at Tom Burch's ranch in Pagosa Springs. You should see this place! It rained hard last night, probably the biggest rain of the summer, but this morning the sun is breaking through patches of blue, and the mist is rising all around in the mountains.

Tom is out rounding up some cows with Rustler, his cattle dog, but when he gets back, we'll get to work and get some things as settled as we can for the EpicSki academy. Stay tuned....

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

Bob,

You're not out helping round up the doggies?

George W. likes ranches, maybe he can visit you.

Tom Burch and Bob Barnes, please check your e-mail.

Mmm, just thinking:
Tom Burch/George W Bush
Bush sounds a bit like Burch, and Tom is easier to spell than George W.
Has anyone seen these two in the same room at the same time?

I have been discussing with Bob and Tom the possibility of having one or more expert boot fitters and alignment specialist participate in the Epic Academy. We are inviting prospects (one already doing business at both Solitude and Snowbird) to take a look at this thread on our event so I thought I would see if I could elicit some comments/interest from our community in having such experts involved. With a positive response here we might be able to more easily recruit one or more to participate, so please chime in.

Personally, having heard many comments from partcipants of this forum, I know there is a lot of expertise and interest in these issues. From my perspective, having someone who will ski with various groups, work on-slope and off-slope with the intstructors on alignemnt analysis, and follow up with appropriate modifications and/or new boot selections first at Solitude and then at Snowbird would be a tremendous asset for our event. I would go so far as to suggest an opportunity for off-slope alignment analysis Sunday night before we start if at all possible.

Yep - I'd be interested - if I can afford to get there.............

Finally--details of the event are coming together. Please see the thread The EPICSKI ACADEMY 2003--details and agenda. I've posted what we know, and there are a few details still unresolved. Please check it out, and keep Tom Burch and myself posted on your ideas. We'll keep that thread updated with the latest information, as it comes available.

I'd especially like to thank Si, Oboe, and Ydnar for your help contacting (and convincing) the powers-that-be, and for your advice and counsel.

Now--tell all your friends! This thing's going to be great, and the more participants we have, the better it will be. More people means more clout, more opportunities for group rates and special consideration, more ability to break up into special-interest-compatible groups, and so on.

In particular, if anyone knows a NON-skier who wants to give it a try, I would love to form a group of beginners. It's unlikely that we have many non-skiers here already among the Bears, so this one especially needs word-of-mouth. Spread that word!

Best regards,
Bob Barnes

As a matter of curiosity, anybody planning to bring kids? I know most schools will be in session, but ...
