I thought it wouldbe a good idea to start a new thread about the 2011 season, and what veryone has in mind for this year. Let's keep this thread going with your experiences, photos and upcoming travel plans, events and so on. I'll start it off..
I'm excited this year to make the trip out west. I've never been out there for skiing, and am STOKED to get some serious ski action in. I just nabbed a set of midfats for the occasion, and am anxious to get some REAL pow pow under my belt. I'm looking for some recommendations on places that are on the MUST SKI bucket list, so please chime in! My wife will be with me, and she's an I/E skier so keep that in mind. In simpler terms we wont be jumping off any rock faces.
I'm also planning on heading up to the mountains in the first week of December (mother nature permitting) to get some time in on the midfats. The last thing I need to take my brand new skis our west and be all over the place on them. HA. My home mountain(s) are Belleayre, Jiminy, and Killington. My wife and I just bought a condo at Killington two years ago, so we're excited to get away for a while and just enjoy the snow. It's pretty sweet being 200' from the Skyeship gondola. We grb the Beast Express pass, throw our garb on, and ski's in the basket and we're off. No life lines, no ticket windows, and best of all, no awkward picnic table boot fittings.
What are YOUR plans this year? Any big events or trips? Let's hear about your upcoming season...
