We're just waiting to hear fr: Ray on which date is best w/ his folks. According to the 'regulars' who responded to my PM a couple weeks back (Ray, Justin & you - I'm good, too), the wknds that we're cool are:
2/29 - 3/2 <---- !Viva la Mexico!
3/7 - 3/9
3/14 -3/16

But with this South o' da Border WRC going off, it seems that we should be looking to do the Subabrew Snowshoe Deux Fois Deux on the wknd two weeks after that, which is the last one on our list. So the wknd before Easter... Fri, Mar 14 thru Sun, Mar 16.

just came back from squaw and northstar. squaw on thursday and northstar on friday. Weekdays are the best. there were no lines at squaw. The longest we had to wait was about a minute tops. The conditions were awesome and the runs were pretty much empty. I didnt realize how big squaw is. I have a season pass for northstar, but I might reconsider next season for squaw. The summit was windy. I had to face up the summit while strapping in because the gusts would blow snow into my jacket and face. other than that, great times. I took on my first "experts only" run like a champ. now I have the confidence to take on black diamonds

northstar was a bit more crowded. longest wait for the lift was less than 4 minutes. again, the conditions were great. no powder but groomed all over (just like squaw)

there should be another storm over through this week, so i wouldnt be surprised if i make it back next thursday.

Kirkwood: just got back (sunday)

from Southbay 3hr trip left at 4:30AM was suprised.

Snow was semi iced over powder, but really nice groomers, i played in "the drain" all day going back and forth doing wallrides, surfing, hips.

Kirkwood is too steep IMO, unless its a powder day. Otherwise the runs are super short just because of the super steep mountain but i love that drain under the Cornice lift at the bottom, so much fun, did it 8 times or so.

clear drive up, snow on the way down.

88 to 99 do you take Liberty or 8 mile to 99? or go 88 all the way to 99 which seems longer to me. Asking since i passed a guy on 88 and saw him on 99 when he took 88 the whole way.

Cool, video to come.

Any word fr: your folks yet, Ray? Looks like we're down to two choices to do this trip somthin' proper:
3/7 - 3/9
3/14 -3/16

But with the South o' da Border WRC going off, we should shoot for a couple weeks after that to do the Oh-Eight Suba- & Snowshoe- BrewFest. Ya know... maybe help Jeff's & Jeremy's wallets & brain cells w/ some recovery time.

So whaddaya think? The wknd before Easter... Fri, Mar 14 thru Sun, Mar 16?

anyone free to ride bear with me tomorrow?

My work is cutting my hours and I have tomorrow off. Figure I might as well do something with my time besides sit in the rain.


Anyone...
