Time to dig out your boots, tune up the skis, and exercise our quads within day drive of Boston. Its early season conditions on limited trails, but we can get good group discounts. Destination Sunapee, Cannon, Ragged, or whoever has snow or best discount.

    Three hardcores made the 3 hour drive to Sunapee and skied a fresh foot of snow - best opening day!! There were ~4 top-bottom trails open - Sunbowl lift was closed in morning, but we noticed the lift started running and waited for the rope to drop. Freshies !! My legs were pretty much mush by the end of the day. Great to spend the day with Bruce and Chandra. Let's do that again soon (as soon as my legs recover).

    Forecast calling for one FOOT of fresh snow. Our meetup time will be delayed to 9:30 because roads will be messy and slow. Take time and arrive safe. Call me @[masked]

    I've heard some are concerned about the storm coming in this weekend. Forecast is saying storm hits Saturday night and continues into Sunday, making for a messy drive in the morning, but we'll have GREAT conditions for skiing. The cold temps have accelerated their snowmaking and hopefully more will open by Sunday. Don't forget 5 food-pantry items for $35 pass. See you there!!

    Note that I just changed the date for this trip to SUNDAY, Dec 15. This is for $35 passes if you bring 5 non-perishable food items. I will send out more details later, but please remove your RSVP if you cannot make it on Sunday

    Nice to see white this morning! It will melt today, but this week will turn cold and resorts will open more trails by Sat.
    I found $35 passes at Sunapee !! This is our plan - will provide more details (meeting place & time) this week. Does anyone need a ride, or would like car pool? I am driving from Newton area and can take a couple of people.

    Here are the options: 1) Cannon offers $39 pass with > 15 persons, 2) Ragged offers $43 for > 10 persons, while Sunapee offers $46 for > 15 persons.
    Lower half of Cannon is open (mostly off Zoomer lift) and tends to get scraped off by lunchtime, Sunapee has better grooming (so I hear), Ragged has only 2 top-bottom runs open (others have 3).

    I've only heard from a few folks, so finding 15 participants might be difficult. Our open house is next Wed, so I will decide on Thur morning. Any thoughts, input, comments??

    Jay always get more snow(, but a long drive for a day trip. My criteria is that time skiing must be greater than time driving. Given the limited trails, not worth a long drive.

    Dec 14th sounds great Jay Peak will have the most snow that time of year. Good rates prior to xmass dosen't hurt. (Weekend)

    AMC is a large org comprised of small groups like our skiers. Except for one trip to Quebec, we don't rent bus or vans. On the other hand, we do encourage car pooling, so chances are good you will find a ride. Obviously this depends on where you live and if someone nearby is participating.

      Ah, Ok. Well, right now I have a conflicting appointment that I am trying to shift around on this date, but I live right off of Joy St if anyone is from that area and willing to car pool, please let me know!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
