    Thank you Julia for organizing this trip! Very well organized and very accomodating (esp. with 53 ppl on the trip)! You made it very easy. Fun trip and nice people. Got some useful skiing tips from others ;) - Berlina aka the beginner

    Julia really did an amazing job organizing the trip - everything was planned well, would definitely go again.

    Was ski rental included into the lift tickets deal or is that separate? Also, there is downhill skiing here (I only see cross country as an option for rentals).

    January 11, 2013

    • Thomas Dwyer I.

      Equipment rental is not included because many people have their own equipment. I recommend renting from Sports Basement ($20 for the whole weekend). The ski resort has downhill skis to rent but you'll spend $30 or more per day there.

      1 · January 11, 2013

    • Julia M.

      Hi Maria, I didn't put downhill skiing rental on the website, because too much money at Northstar. They are asking $42 per day. You better rent at Sports Basement.

    Folks boarding in Daly City: Regarding the parking map that Julia posted ( http://pictures.yourasianconnection.com/DalyCityBART.jpg ), our larger bus has difficulty making the sharp turns in & out of that parking lot. Instead, we will stop on De Long St where the picture shows two white buses on the far right-hand side. You should park on the east side of the lot (where the picture shows a row of cars directly underneath the green "Park in this outside lot." bubble).

    • Mase

      I am assuming that we can leave cars there overnight?

      January 11, 2013

    • Thomas Dwyer I.

      Yes. We've never had a problem with this in the past but please check the signs to be sure. See also: http://www.bart.gov/g...­

      hi julia, I'm so sorry for the dumb questions - I just found out I was confirmed, and it's my first time with this group. Does everyone take the bus, or do some people drive? It looks like the Richmond pick-up would work for me (I live in Piedmont) - can I leave my car somewhere all weekend? Also, I've skiied before but don't have my own equipment - I assume I can rent?

      January 10, 2013

    • Julia M.

      We have 52 people on the bus now, I don't know anyone drive at this point. We have 8 people at Richmond location for pick up, you can call Richard at[masked] for good parking spots in that area.

    Awesome!! Just got an email notification that I'm off the waitlist and confirmed! Very excited! I live in the East Bay (Piedmont) and would love to carpool, can also offer my comfortable car (Nissan Murano SUV) if needed. Can leave as early as Friday afternoon. Are most people driving up on Friday, or Sat morning? Cell # for calls or texts is[masked] (is it okay to post that here?)
