Hi Bears. I'm heading back out to Vail for 9 days with Bazzer Jr. (aka The Kid.)
The Kid and I will be skiing from Dec. 21st through the 29th. He's 17, and would be delighted to meet some skiers/boarders near his age. We've got some friends in the area, but are always open to making more.
We've spent a fair amount of time skiing at Vail, and would be happy to show any visiting/wandering Bears around a bit. Of course, we'd be equally glad to learn some more about the place from any locals.
We may have reliable Internet access at our digs, but if anyone knows that they’ll be around and would care to hook up, let me know prior to our departure on the 20th and I'll send along my cell phone number via PM. Otherwise, I’ll just check the forums and make connections on the fly.
We almost always hit the lifts as soon as they open, and ski until closing time. Should be easy to arrange meeting time & place.
Only caveats; we’re flatlanders and this will be our first trip of the season. It takes me a while to acclimate to the altitude, so anyone who wants to spend the day charging hard may want to wait until the 22nd to hook up.
We may miss a day on the mountain as we want to pay a visit with some friends in Denver. I’ll try to arrange this day so as not to interfere with Bear hook-ups.
