Meadows resort skiing/ boarding/Rotary Night $10

Thank you to everyone willing and able to drive.

Below is an description of the event and a disclaimer. Please read once. It will not change much from week to week. The description last edited[masked]

Number of members who can attend: We are limited by the number of drivers. As more drivers sign up more seats will be made available. The people on the waiting list will automatically be moved up.

Meeting place: We meet in the SE corner of the parking structure at the Gateway Transit Center. I drive a grey Subaru Forester. For some reason a number of people have had a hard time finding us so please make sure you are in the right place. If you are concerned about finding us feel free to email me earlier in the week and I'll send you my phone number so that you can call the day of the event if need be.

Timeliness:  The event begins at 1:00, so naturally, you should be there by 12:45.  If you arrive after 1:00, you are late and have probably missed us.  We LEAVE at 1:00. We can not wait around wondering if people will show up late.  The parking lot at Meadows fills too early, we need to keep the group together, and it's not fair to make everyone wait and miss runs for people who can't arrive on time.

Riding up: There is no need to arrange rides prior to arriving at Gateway. We'll always drive the fewest possible number of cars to the mountain and will divide up at Gateway. No one will be left behind. Be on time, though. We don't wait for stragglers.

Gas money: Each rider pays $15 to the driver for each trip. Please have cash ready and offer to the driver without him/her having to ask.

On the mountain: Most of us prefer to ski/board with others. Once at Meadows we meet up by the outside ticket booth and group up according to skill level. You can of course take off on you own if you prefer.

Helmets save lives. Please wear one.

Disclaimer: While this is a regular Meetup event it is not “led” in the same way we might be used to having Meetup events led. I'll see you long enough to get you in a car at Gateway and possibly again at Meadows long enough to get you hooked up with a group but unless you are skiing with me we will have limited contact. Each person needs to self manage, come prepared for the weather conditions and ski/board according to his/hers ability.

Liability Waiver:

As with User Agreements on the Internet that we all click on but never read hundreds if not thousands of event organizers around the country have event participants sign boiler plate liability waivers prior to events that aren't read by the participants. I have little faith that those waivers would hold up in court should something unfortunate happen during the event and the organizer get end up in court being sued. In plain language I want to make it real clear that you are participating in this event at your own risk and that by signing up you are releasing the event organizer of all liability. All outdoor events are potentially high risk and you need to use your personal judgement in keeping that risk below your comfort level. You should never do anything you feel might result in injury or worse depending on someones judgement other then your own. Should injury or worse still occur you realize the fault is your own and you agree not to pass the blame to the event organizer or another team member.  Getting in a car with a stranger is also a risk.  We can not possibly evaluate drivers and vehicles. We merely provide a meeting time and place for people with a common interest and you decide if you care to go together.  You may participate in the event only under these conditions.

    There is no way I am going back to Meadows or anywhere else for that matter until there's more snow. The ice and crap conditions aren't worth any price.

    Had a fun evening, but I wasn't expecting the crowds. Meadows wasn't either. It was nice to make some new friends.

    January 23, 2013

  • noelle

    I had fun! Thanks to Nicole for coordinating and to all the drivers! It was a little nuts up there! I think next time I'd just spring for full price night ski tix and hope for less ice & less people but overall I'm glad we all went! :) Nice to meet everyone!

    January 23, 2013

  • Nicole

    Super crowed night with lots of people skiing/riding fast and out of control. I got hit by a snowboarder from behind. I don't recommend going up on this night unless you can't get up there otherwise. $10 tickets didn't make it worth the stress of all the people and the ice.

      I got hit too!

    MHM was very disorganized and slow in getting people tickets, even the prepaid ones.

    January 23, 2013

  • Courtney

    Awesome deal! I think everyone had an enjoyable time except for the large amount of people up at the mountain. Pretty crowded.

    January 22, 2013

  • Csaba

    Meet at 630pm by flag pole for dinner break. 9pm at cafeteria. A few of us are riding stadium chair.

  • Shey

    Hey guys, I've been here for about 5min, but I am unsure of location.

    January 21, 2013

  • Courtney

    I'm running late but on my way, work kept me late against my will, sorry,[masked] if you need to get ahold of me, see you soon!

      January 21, 2013

    • Mark P.

      Everyone have a ride? I could still swing by on my way up? I'm about 15 minutes away.

      January 21, 2013

  • Jim G.

    I can drive and carry 2 passengers.

    January 21, 2013

  • Crystal

    Was going to head up with friends today but they both bailed this morning... so I'm flying solo. I'll be driving up a little earlier than the group so I can be there right when cheap skiing starts and heading back around 6pm. Text me if you want to meet up on the slopes... I'd love the company (skier- mostly blue/black). [masked]

  • Mark P.

    I'd like to attend and able to drive. I have added myself to the wait list.

    January 10, 2013

    • Nicole

      Hi Mark. How many people can you drive including you?

      January 14, 2013

    • Mark P.

      Hi Nicole, sorry for the delayed response. I could accommodate two (additional) skiers, but it looks like you already have everything set. No worries. I'll see you on the hill. Going offline, so if you wish/need to call me, I'm at five-zero-three, seven-zero-two, 4044. Thanks.

      January 21, 2013

  • Damon

    Last minute hopeful... I see that RSVPs are closed but if someone still has room in their car I have gas $. :)

    January 21, 2013

  • Nicole

    Here is what we've got so far for drivers. Me (+1 and with room for 3)
    David (with room for 3)
    Wendi (+1 with room for 1)
    Courtney (+1 with room for 3)
    Luke (with room for 4)

    That's 22 total spots in cars. If anyone on this list is not able to take as many as I wrote above, let me know soon.

    January 17, 2013

    • Nicole

      We lost Luke as a driver, added Csaba, and came out with the same number of spots. Sweet!

      January 19, 2013

    • Nicole

      Okay, added David as a driver from waitlist. That's enough for the waitlist. See you all at Gateway at 12:45.

      January 20, 2013

  • David

    I can drive, but cannot carry skis/snowboards with me. I can drive three others.

    January 20, 2013

    • Nicole

      Thanks for driving. I can fit gear in my car/roof rack.

      January 20, 2013

  • Csaba

    I plan to attend and added myself to the wait list.

    Not sure if my wait list comment appeared as it should. I can drive and have room for one passenger plus gear.

    I have a sedan with a fold down rear seat. I could carry up to three passengers if skis/boards are carried in another vehicle or if my passengers are renting and another vehicle carries my snowboard.

    January 18, 2013

    • Nicole

      Thanks for driving. I've added you to the list. I have room for gear in my car.

      January 19, 2013

    • Csaba

      Sounds great. I'm fine to stay until closing or as late as your vehicle plans to if you need to leave earlier.

      January 19, 2013

  • liz d

    buy your ticket online for $10 by noon Monday, or pay $15 at Meadows. http://www.skihood.com/Store/Products/Day-Passes/Rotary-Night-Lift-Pass

    January 18, 2013

    • Christina M.

      Thank you for posting this...just bought my ticket. Otherwise I would not have known.

      January 19, 2013

  • liz d

    In general, What time are we thinking of coming back to Portland?

    January 18, 2013

    • Nicole

      It really depends on the day. On most trips, I've found that people stay until the end (9) and get back around 10:30. I think there are people interested in leaving early this time though. We can coordinate rides at Gateway based partially on leaving time.

      January 18, 2013

  • Marcia

    Thank you in advance to whoever ends up taking me and my gear to the mountain on Monday!

    January 18, 2013

  • Priscilla

    Would anybody be willing to meet at noon, have lunch in Sandy and be ready to ski at 2 and leave at 4:15? I have to be back at the transit center by 6. I have AWD Subaru Outback and can take 2 or 3. Thanks.

    I can drive but may have a friend coming with me already, but it will leave room for one more...if anyone needs a ride please let me know.thanks.

    January 15, 2013

    • Nicole

      Thanks Wendi. I'll update the RSVPs for your 1 spot and add your friend. See you Monday.

      January 17, 2013

  • Courtney

    I'm what you would call a green snowboarder I believe. Never been on a lift. Can kids go too? I have a 5 year old but I can find him a sitter if I have to. I am driving and can haul 3 others besides him and myself. I left a note when I asked to be put on the waiting list. Please add me as a driver. Thank you!

    January 13, 2013

    • Nicole

      Hi. He is welcome to join. Thanks for driving. I'll update RSVPs. Let me know ASAP if anything changes.

      January 14, 2013

    • Courtney

      Possible he won't be coming, will let you know for sure by Sunday! Means I will have room for 4 besides myself, instead of 3!

    Is anyone a green skier or blue? I haven't been up in a few years, so I'll be slow, but would like to know I can ski with someone before I sign up. Thanks!

    January 8, 2013

    • Nicole

      We meet up once we all get to meadows and split into groups from there.

      January 10, 2013

    • Cheryl

      Hey Kathy - I ski mostly blue runs, with an occasional black diamond. Like you, I haven't been up in a few years so would be happy to ski with you. I'm on the wait list....

      January 11, 2013

  • David B.

    Any Tele skiers out there? Will be driving, using a smaller, lower impact vehicle to get there and sharing the benefits amongst those concerned about global warming.

    January 10, 2013

    • Cigdem

      I am a tele skier but will probably bring my fixed AT gear. I've been curious about your other meetup group so looking forward to discussing this with you in person. Thanks.

      And at the bottom of the page it mentions "On Monday Jan. 18, you may buy the lift ticket at Meadows...from Rotarian Chuck Hinman." - Yup, someone's confused. Next Monday is the 14th.
