Hey Everyone!

Thanks to everyone who made it to last month social; we ended up with close to 120 skiers and boarders. The beer and wine was most definitely flowing as well as talk of the upcoming snow conditions and the ski areas who are opened in Tahoe.

In short, we're into the season and the conditions look great  - so, get geared up, socialize, find friends and people to car-pool with, connect, mingle, share your stories about the 'good old 2010 winter' and get excited!

This social is another one of the first of the monthly "Socials" for everyone in the meetup to hang out and get to know each other.

Also, please feel free to start posting about lift ticked deals, ride shares and resort conditions and check out the discussion(s) on the discussion boards.

If there is an idea for a meetup event you would like to see please contact Leonard or Jan.

The 2013 ski and snowboard season is here and we are in for another great season!

We will meeting again at Palomino on the Spear street which has validated parking, an awesome Happy Hour with great drink/food specials and close to BART/public transportation.

Invitations have been again extended to the Bay Area Skiing and Snowboarding so we will be meeting other people who share our desire for the snow in Tahoe.

Looking forward to seeing everyone

Leonard and Jan

    NEVER snowboarded before and I want to. Friends want to teach me but uncertain of their teaching skills ahaha... A couple of friends and I are going to Tahoe Fri., the 11th -- Mon., the 14th 'ish.

    Any pro(s) in SF kind enough to give me some beginner pointers/lessons? I'll buy you lunch! I'm cheap, I know! but I'm broke! Anyhow, would love to meetup with anyone who's going up to Tahoe around those days o___O -cheers!

      January is a "Learn to Ski/Ride" promotion month for a number of the resorts so check their websites; also Shelll has a 2for1 Ski/Snowboard voucher on Sunday if you buy 10 gallons of gas. See you at an meetup event soon.....

    I like powder snow and steep slopes. My favorite places are Snowbird/Alta, in the US, and I want to go to Europe in February, to ski at La Meije, La Grave (7200' vertical, no lines, no grooming, no ski patrol, no "closed area" signs) I would like to share expenses, and have a small condo there that rents for $25/night. A day pass is about $40...

    I also have a Subaru Wagon with Real Snow Tires (no Chains required), and want to car pool when there is good powder...probably Squaw/Alpine or maybe Sugarbowl. I taught skiing for several years, so perhaps some intermediate skiers would like to trade a few lessons for Sandwiches and Beer, or a place to crash on the floor...

    I am a Bamboo Technologist, interested in Sustainable Alternatives for all of the right reasons...check out:
    Bambooisgrass.com
    for more about that. Miller Ski Company built Bamboo skis back in the 70's, and Bogner sells them now (even a Bamboo Helmet to match), I'm doing R&D to build Bamboo/Carbon Fiber Skis.
