We are now the biggest winter sports group on Meetup Toronto area !!! Thanks to all those who have joined and participated !!
Meet other local snowboarders and find new friends to snowboard with. We'll rip up the local hills and also try to do a few out of province trips.
All skill levels are welcome to join us ... and we'll even let you skiers tag along too (but be aware that we WILL make fun of you !) ! We always have everyone from a group of beginners to intermediate to those that love the park. Local daytrips are mostly weekends and Saturday's since TTC does not start til late on Sunday's.
Everyone is required to answer the questions asked when signing up for a daytrip. The questions will pop up after you confirm your RSVP (please note that the questions will not appear when RSVPing on a phone app). I need this info to plan carpooling and assign rides. If you do not answer the questions then a ride will not be arranged for you.
Rides will be allocated based on those who have RSVPed "YES" AND have answered all the questions. The rides will be based in the order in which people have signed up and answered all the questions. If you RSVP "MAYBE" or do not answer the questions you will not be allocated a ride.
We need more drivers. Last year we always had enough cars going up but this year we have more people needing rides than cars. Please note that gas money is determined based on just the passengers paying for gas. Drivers do not pay for gas since they are supplying cars. In general, passengers will pay $20 gas for most local daytrips.
Anyone who bails out AFTER I allocated and arrange rides will no longer be eligble for carpooling arrangements. They are still welcome to join the group on the hills but will have to make their own way up (this means you can't take a seat in any of the cars that are part of the group that day). This is to STRONGLY discourage last minute bail-outs since allocating carpool rides then having to reshuffle or leave some drivers short of passengers is a huge pain in the %&$ and also leaves drivers short on gas money ... and even worse if it is a driver who bails.
This is the only group that will arrange rides for you. With all other groups you have to find your own rides which means drivers get swamped with requests and passengers have to e-mail a bunch of drivers to find a ride.
Please note that this is a group for adults only so you must be 18 years of age or older to join and particpate.
I've split off the snowboarding portion from the Beach Volleyball group where we were previously combined. That way each group can focus on members who are only interested in one of our core activities.
If you need new or used snowboard gear (snowboard, bindings, boots, helmets), contact me as I can set you up with some pretty good deals.
Check out our Beach Volleyball group too for you summer lovers. We did all of our snowboarding events through that group last year so check out the past events there to give you a taste of what we will do for the upcoming season.
