Update: This will be my last update. Check the webpage for any changes.
LJ will be your host on this ski trip due to my car problems. You are all in good hands as LJ is a fun & pleasant person to be around. :) So where to Meetup? Meet at Creekside Cafe before it opens & Local's Cafe (bottom of chair 7) at 12. I will email LJ's contact to the drivers.
Update: Please indicate if you can drive, if you have chains & rack & where you are leaving when you RSVP or update your RSVP.
Christian, Jeff & Roger are the only ones left with space in their cars (driver, city, status & Meetup):
- Christian Lynn, Concord, open, BASS
- Jeff Richards, Walnut Creek, open, BASS
- Roger, San Jose, open, SJ/CRH&AF
- Fabio, Union City, car full, BASS
- Josh, San Jose, car full, SJ/CRH&AF
- LG, Dublin, car full, SJ/CRH&AF
Lots of people from around the Bay Area, mostly San Francisco & Silicon Valley, want to go, but no one else has offered to drive, so please organize a carpool.
Update: If you have a voucher you'd like to give up, please post here. Matt in BASS has 2 for $30 each.
Update: 2-3' of snow at base & summit. Expect light dusting of snow before Friday. All lifts except #2 & #4 are open. Trails are mostly groomed.
A bunch of us went to the SnowFest ski convention and after drinking some free Mammoth beer (LOL), we decided to do a:
* One-day trip to Dodge Ridge this Friday 12/18
The plan: We will get up to the slopes, ski or board our butts off, have a good time, return safely. :)
Note the free DR lift ticket is restricted to M-F. If you work Fridays but want to go, take a day off work.
At this point, things look good, but plans subject to change due to weather, snow conditions or other factors.
There may be some more free lift tickets if you didn't get one. If you have extras, please post here.
