Kirkwood/Northstar ski trip

We're planning a weekend ski trip to Kirkwood/Northstar this weekend.

If you want to come by car:

Carpool meetup Saturday 6am at Oakland @ Jack London Square  (One Embarcadero West, Oakland CA). Please show up on time, since we have to depart within 15 minutes.

Free parking over the weekend, bring your car or take the BART to Lake Merritt BART station (three blocks away). Please confirm your ride with the carpool drivers in advance, suggest at least $40/person for gas/toll for the trip.

If you can drive, please start a discussion thread so riders can sign up for your carpool. If you want to ride, please confirm your ride with a driver in advance, do not just show up and expect a ride.

If you are coming by the bus:

    Eric, Likely I can only go on Sunday the 10th only. Probably I will take the Bay Area Ski bus but is going to Kirkwood that day. Let me see if there is other carpool alternative going to Northstar so we can meetup.

    I have not received any confirmations on carpool meetup in Jack London Square (Oakland) @ 6am, so will assume everyone is on their own for transportation.

      I may drive with a friend on sat. Not decided if 1 or 2 days

      February 8, 2013

    • linda

      Ok. It sounds like it is better if you go with your friend Sat as I am definitely not doing the 2 days. I'm not seeing significant accumulation by sat. it will be very cold so I guess not much will be gone. I think today would have been a better day. have fun!

    Hey folks, based on interest so far, most people are just going up for one day. So I'll just send out my phone to coordinate meetup on the slopes. No shared lodging on Sat night this time.
