Beginners Day Snowboarding Sat to Blue

Plan on leaving the city around 7:00 am to arrive at the hills at approx 9am. Wrapping up usually around 4:30 pm.

All skill levels are welcome but I will be over helping on the beginner hills after lunch along with anyone who wants to volunteer to help with some teaching and instruction also.

PLEASE NOTE THAT RSVP QUESTIONS WILL NOT POP UP WHEN YOU RSVP IF YOU RSVP FROM A MEETUP PHONE APP.

Answers to the questions are required for me to organize carpooling. This is mandatory. If you do not answer all the questions as requested your RSVP will be removed.

All passengers will pay for gas and everyone is responsible for their own lift ticket + $2 meetup fee.

Car pooling will be arranged. Please indicate if you can drive or if you need a ride by answering the RSVP questions. If you do not indicate that you need a ride, I will not know to arrange one for you. Rides will be allocated based on your response order so those that confirm attendance and indicate they need a ride first will be allocated space first

RSVP's will close a week or so before the event if we are a go so I can arrange car pools and rides for everyone.

    Yeah it was very nice meeting most of you! It was a cool, no actually very WARM meet up! :) In the morning I felt a bit lonely in the beginner section as most of you are non-beginners...glad that Eric and Ed came over to the kindergarten area and helped us out in the afternoon! Special thanks to Eric for your patience and effective coaching! :)

    Conditions were definitely better than expected. Had a great time riding. Great turn out at the pub.

    Conditions were actually way better than I expected. I thought I might have trouble finding white links between the grass but turned out a bunch of runs had enough base to survive. Yay

    OK, forecast is showing 9-11C on Saturday and overcast. Probably no rain. Conditions will be like spring conditions so should be fine so we are a go for Saturday. The season is short in Ontario.

      Hopefully they're able to run the snow machines overnight so we'll have something half decent to ride on since it's expected to rain all day Friday up in Collingwood.

    I signed up but im not a beginner and i wouldn't mind helping instruct. i was an instructor for a few years at horseshoe valley.

    • # E.

      Amanad, you did not fill out the RSVP questions. These must be filled out for each event

      January 7, 2013

  • Sarah

    Thanks so much Zack and Eric! Since Zack will be going to Richmomd Hill area anyway, think it'd be easier I join his car then. Zack, I will send you separate message and my contact later, thanks! Look forward to meeting you guys soon! :)

      Well I am new to this group and just didn't know how the carpooling works here, and your 'People...' message came up when I was sending mine...anyway, I was just asking, wasn't trying to arrange anything. In any circumstance, I guess any member's enquiry could be replied in a more friendly way.

      January 5, 2013

    • # E.

      Everyone is asked if they've read the group guidelines to understand how this group works when they join the group. Things run very smoothly when every reads how the group works and reads the event description. It becomes very clear who has not read both if these. The event description specifically states that carpool assignments will be completed by me after the RSVPs close which is in this case on Sunday. If its a few days before the event and you haven't heard from me ... Then you can panic. Those that don't read how the group works and start posting here create a lot of extra work for me. All I ask is patience ... And by Mon or Tues car pool assignments will be posted and by wed or thurs everyone will be called with the final arrangements.

      January 5, 2013

  • # E.

    People please READ the event and how this group works. There are FORTY people signed up for this event that I have to arrange carpooling for. DO NOT POST LOOKING FOR OR ASKING FOR RIDES. IT CAUSES SIGNIFICANT COMPLICATIONS FOR ME IN ARRSMGING CARPOOL ASSIGNMENTS. The event indicates that carpooling assignments will be made AFTER the RSVPs close.

      Thanks ed, was not trying to overstep boundaries here. Was trying to trigger a response from you to clear up how carpooling would be working. ;)

    • Tamara

      Very smooth Eric**smiles**. Yep Ed I think you had to step in here and clear things up.

      January 5, 2013

  • Ryan D.

    hopefully I ll get some passengers to share the gas cost lol

    January 4, 2013

    • # E.

      Ryan you will not get passengers assigned up you unless you are willing to pick up at yorkdale.

    Cannot make it to Blue due to the fact that I teach boarding at Mt. St. Louis Saturday mornings for my club. If any of you make it to Louis any Saturday I can lend a hand most afternoons. Just let me know. Cheers!

    January 4, 2013

  • Eric C.

    Aww yeah, just scheduled to get my board waxed and sharpened. Looking forward to getting out on the hills with everyone in the new year. :)

    • Michael K.

      I usually go to Sportschek to wax/sharpen. Any better suggestions near Downtown?

      December 30, 2012

    • Eric C.

      I'm trying out a guy on craigslist in the north york area to do my tune up, I'll let you know how it goes.

      December 30, 2012

  • # E.

    We have a lot of people signed up for this event so if you have decided not to come then please change yor RSVP ASAP. I see no objections to moving this event to Blue Mountain so I've changed the location.

    December 30, 2012

  • # E.

    Andre, H, Andrew - you did not answer the RSVP questions or you did not answer ALL the questions so your RSVP has been removed. If you want to sign up again please answer the questions.

    December 29, 2012

  • # E.

    Thinking about changing this to Blue Mountain since we have only been to MSM so far this season. Let me know if anyone objects to that.

    1 · December 27, 2012

    • Gerard A.

      Totally down for Blue, you have my vote.

      December 27, 2012

    • Eric C.

      I'd say as long as no one has bought their ticket to MSM, sure switch it up. I prefer Blue anyway.

  • Antonelle

    Hey Ed I want to bring a guest with me, just letting you know for a passenger update ;)

    December 25, 2012

  • Omar A

    Ed: I'll stay off the waiting list for now, but if you need another instructor, I'd be happy to help out. If you do, please let me know and I'll add my name to the waitlist. If not, have fun, everyone! :)

    December 20, 2012

    • # E.

      Antonelle, I have you driving as we need the additional car. Omar, you've been added

      December 20, 2012
