Another highlight cgeib forgot to mention while he was posting this at 12:30 in the morning(when do you sleep?)

 

ESA Stowe is returning to the Stoweflake....

 

post #3 of 42

Okay!  Here we go with another amazing ESA season.

 

Below is a preliminary list of coaches...all of whom have worked with us before.  I'm really thrilled to be working with this team.  They are fully loaded, outstanding coaches.

 

 

 

Arapahoe Basin

Bob Barnes

Annie Black

Weems Westfeldt

Squatty Schuler

Charlie MacArthur

 

Stowe

Bob Barnes

Weems Westfeldt

Dan Egan (possible)

Sue Kramer

Troy Walsh

 

AspenSnowmass

Annie Black

Weems Westfeldt

Squatty Schuler

Bud Heishman

Bob Barnes

Charlie MacArthur

 

Now, as registration increases, we have a whole stable of other coaches available to call on. 

 

BUT GET ON THE REGISTRATION QUICKLY SO WE DON'T LOSE THEM!

 

Two other items:

Unfortunately, because this is an interski year for PSIA, some of our great stalwarts like Robin Barnes (sob!) will not be able to make it (so don't even ask!)  She will definitely return in the future.  We may have to put Bob Binder in detox over this.

 

I'm starting a draft Nolo movement.  I want her to coach more for us.  Nolololololo? Yes?   

post #4 of 42

I'm really glad that you won't make me pick a coach.  I'd have to say eenie meenie minee mo......Nice line up Weems!

Am I THAT easy to read????
 

post #7 of 42

Maybe Charlie B's at Stoweflake will help Bbinder cope, eh?

post #8 of 42
 No, Bob.  You're just a wise man!   Hope you had fun in Ptllo?  Are you still there?

Oops.  I made a mistake in the coaches list in AspenSnowmass.

 

Charlie Mac will be at Interski.  Instead we are going to have Jenny MacArthur, Charlie's better three quarters.  She used to be on the Aussie Demo Team and she is a trainer examiner, super hot teacher skier, and all around wild thang!

 

I'm succeeding in my Nolo push.  She says that if we get overwhelmed with participants she'll be happy to fill in.

 

We are putting together a really interesting idea...Chris Geib's idea....of several boot gurus giving a Q & A at Aspen Snowmass.  I think they ought to finish it with a food fight...using boots intstead of food!

 

So...overwhelm us!

post #10 of 42

Also, I was wrong about Dan Egan.  (I must have been asleep writing this.)

 

His brother, Mike, who did a great job for us last year is coming back.  Also, we could have Tod O'Dowd...also a great and tested coach for us.  And this year, we might be able to get Erik Timmerman...the guy who really was so great in starting this event.

post #11 of 42

Hey Weems,

Looks like you might get stuck with the Landry brothers twice in the same year. Ray and I headed to Mt. Bachelor this past April following the Aspen event and had a blast. Skiing is always fun, but skiing with newly found skills is really fun. And I'll thank you again for that!

 

Ray and I are fishing the Louisiana marshes tomorrow for the first time since the spill. And part of our plan is to talk each other into the Arapahoe Basin event before the end of the trip.

 

It would be great to ski with you at Arapahoe but I know I'll have a good time with any of the coaches listed.

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

 

Bryan

blandry, its good to know that you're considering joining the ESA Gang at A-basin.  The Landry gang is a ton-O-fun!

How do I register for more than one event to get my 5% off?  And I'd like to register for the Aspen event without lift tickets -- how do I do that?

 

I know that Weems wants to hike all 4 days...

We've received your registration and will send you a note explaining the discount and the lift tickets.

As usual, we'll work with you.

Just as you did, Mike!  Register for both events and when I see them come in together I will issue your rebate.

 

You'll have to take that hiking thing up with Weems.  If he's feeling as good this season as last I suggest you carry GS or DH boards up on those hikes!

post #16 of 42

Perhaps he can carry my skis as well.  That might slow him down enough that I could at least see him for 15 seconds or so.

 

Mike

post #17 of 42

Yeah Weems, back from Portillo and back to the daily grind for the past week...good to have ski season to look forward to.

post #18 of 42

Blandriieeees!!  Laissez les bon temps rouler!  Looking forward to y'alls arrival.

 

Habacomike.  I'll be happy to carry your skis.  And you of course will be happy to carry me?

 

Binder Bob!  Welcome back.  Hope the snow was great!

post #19 of 42

I ran up to Aspen for literally 15 minutes on Saturday to check the conditions, while on a special mission. There isn't any snow yet, but the colors are changing throughout Colorado and Indian Summer is happening and the fairest weather of all.

 

I predict winter is after fall, which is after summer and the snow will be white and the ski season will be fun as always. See ya at A-Basin in December and Aspen in January.

post #20 of 42

Regarding ESA Snowmass-

 

I have very narrow feet and own nothing but goggles and clothes. Couldn't do boots last season and now Phil has moved to Tahoe . If I can get there it wouldn't be until late Sunday night. Can rentals/demos be arranged (incl helmet for a big head) so as not to disrupt the Monday morning fun?

Hi!  It would be a real mistake to have someone go in and do that for you...especially if you have narrow feet.  

 

The shops open well in advance of the lifts (and I recommend 4 Mountain Sports).  And it won't take very long.  Really.  And if it does take longer, we'll make sure and have someone catch you up.  Don't worry.  This will work out.  Just stay in touch with me as the time approaches.

Wise prediction!  From a wise man!

You should just come to ESA Stowe in December and buy/dial some new boots with Benny. Then you can arrive in Aspen late w no worries.

Come through Tahoe ;). You can go back to Wicks, Steve Andrews there does a good job.

If only! Daughter's club hockey schedule rules out Stowe and A-Basin. The weekday scheduling makes Aspen remotely possible.

It is a longshot that I will make it at all but I will definitely contact you if it works out. Unfortunately I theorize and read here a LOT more than I get to ski.

I would love to get out to Tahoe some day. My sister just moved to Santa Barbara so one spring we will have to tack it on as a West Coast Swing.  Thanks for the recommendation at Wicks. Was going to PM you eventually. The new Lange boot sounds like an interesting setup for my practically A-width heel in addition to the Kryptons. Unfortunately the magical combo of time and money keeps eluding me...

 

 

post #26 of 42

Keniski, if you're talking about buying boots, the best thing in AspenSnowmass...if you arrive late, is to rent the first day, and then start the buying process later in the day.

 

We've got a lot of folks who can help.  And your coach can get a good enough look at your skiing in order to advise.

post #27 of 42

Thanks, Weems, now I have a new daydream! Phil and I had some preliminary conversations (before he deserted the East Coast) based purely on some hearsay from me and him taking a look at my narrow feet when I was getting some equipment from him for my wife. Wouldn't ever buy without a pro bootfitting. I would love to do exactly what you suggest-- get out there in January, jack up my skiing, and take home a pair of great-fitting boots because I know rental boots can't be a long-term solution for me. Got to make it happen now...
