UPDATE NOV 12:
Looks like we'll need 5-7 cars for the trip to the mountain. Let's meet at 7am at the Target parking lot on 28th and Pearl (park closest to 28th St) on Nov 23 and head out around 7:15am. We'll figure out carpools that morning, or if some of you already have carloads, just head over and meet the rest of us there around 9am.
Once we get there, let's all meet in the rental shop (around 9am) and we can split into ski/snowboard groups there (beginner/intermediate/etc). I'm thinking to bring some dot stickers that we can put on our helmets/jackets so we can tell who's part of our group while on the mountain, in case someone gets lost or wants to join another group.
Itching to get some skiing/snowboarding in... let's try to get at least one trip in before December. Depending on number of people, we'll have a couple of drivers and parking at A-Basin is free. Just pay your drivers for gas. We'll head out early morning for a 1.5-2 hr drive and head back after sunset.
