    I have a car and could transport exactly 2 other people plus boards (compact sedan, not a ton of space) , but am curious if anyone has yet worked out the transportation situation.

  • Joe B.

    Good news - there's snow in the forecast!

    If you still owe money for the trip I've sent an invoice through PayPal today. A prompt response would be greatly appreciated, and thanks to those that have already paid.

    Also - I can't go on this trip anymore due to an injury, so Brandon is going to be the man in charge and help you guys get your room keys / lift tickets / beer fest admission, etc. Post here or message with each other if you need (or can offer) a carpool to the mountain.

  • Joe B.

    They've got snow at Smuggs already and the mountain is opening up this Friday!

    Good news Ted, Patricia, and Emily G.: I've confirmed we can still sign up more people right now at the same $204 rate!

    Please paypal your balance due (or whole payment of $204 if you are just signing up now) to the [masked] PayPal address. As before, please be sure to add any credit card transaction fees to your payment if not using a bank transfer.

  • marc p.

    ...ops, there goes the neighborhood, about time too! Joe, how far into Nov do we have to get in our fifty deposits for the $204 rate?

    Fwiw, most diehard skiers aren't haters, we credit boarders for keeping areas off the list!

    October 31, 2013

    • Joe B.

      I've extended the deadline for deposits till the end of day tomorrow. Please RSVP if you want to go! I can't guarantee anything without the advance deposit.
