UA Mammoth Snow Adventure (Weekend Trip, Snowboarding, Skiing, Good Times)

  • December 14, 2012 · 1:00 PM

Only 7 More Spots Left!!!!

Ready for a weekend of playing in the snow, and hanging with the crew? Well, here we go. UA will be invading Mammoth this winter for some good times on the slopes.

 

We will have two side by side condos with 2 bedrooms + loft, and two bathrooms each. Each has a maximum occupancy of 8, but this being UA we will try to accommodate 10 people in each unit (maybe more if there is enough demand) in order to make it a few bucks cheaper per person. The condos are walking distance to the shuttles that take you up to the Village and lifts for free.

Everyone will share rooms, beds, couches, floor space, etc... so please don't expect your own private quarters. If you've been on these type of events with us before, then you know how it works and we always have a blast. If you're new to the group and are apprehensive about spending the entire weekend with so many strangers, don't worry, we all started out as strangers in this group and had to take that big leap of faith that whatever our first event was, was going to be a blast. You wont be disappointed.

As you can imagine, this may turn out to be a bit of a rowdy time, so please don't sign up if this doesn't sound like your cup of tea or if you are an early sleeper or require quiet to sleep. I can't guarantee that you will get it.

Whether you're there to ski, snowboard, snowshoe, make snow angels, or just relax in the condo or the condo's hot tub, there is something for everyone to do.

The cost for this event will be $99.00 for the two night stay. Price is the same whether you go for one night, or two. Price also includes food for DIY breakfast on Saturday and Sunday morning, and a simple casual dinner on Saturday night.  We may even opt for hitting the town again.  For those that arrive early on Friday we can head to the village and check out the local restaurant/bars, or both.

The $99.00 fee DOES NOT include the price of lifts, equipment rental or food on Friday.

This event is BYOB so please bring your own booze/drinks of choice and feel free to bring some to share.

If anyone is up for a 3rd night let me know. If enough people are interested I can look into the price for keeping one condo an extra night. Mention it in your RSVP comments.

Everyone will help to cook and clean. The condos need to be clean before we leave on Sunday, so please do your share before you leave.

There is a 3 car parking limit per condo so carpools will be mandatory as having too many cars will be a sure-tell sign that we are exceeding the occupancy limit. You can arrange your own carpools, otherwise I will try to match up people with rides depending on their location. Passengers, please be ready to drive to the drivers meeting location of choice and please be ready to split the cost of gas with the other passengers.

I know not everyone will be able to head out of town at the same time.  Please list when you can leave, and what part of town you're in.  If you are driving, please also list that as well as how many passengers you have space for (don't forget room for gear).

Check in is at 1:00 PM on Friday, and check out is at 11:00 AM on Sunday.  I will work on getting us early check in and late check out.

Please bring:

  • Towels
  • Toiletries
  • Change of clothes or two (duh!)
  • Snow gear if you have it
  • Sleeping bags, covers, air mattresses, foam pads, etc.. whatever else you may need to sleep comfortably, whether in a bed or on the floor.
  • Money to cover gas and all meals not included in the price of the event
  • Your own booze and booze to share
  • An open mind about spending the entire weekend in semi-close quarters lots of people, some of whom you've probably never met.
  • A fun and adventurous attitude

The way this will work is: If you want to attend this event, you will sign up for the waitlist, and send your payment in via the Paypal link. Once I receive your payment I will place you on the YES section.

No refunds unless event is canceled. In the case that you can no longer make it, a refund may be given only if the event is full and someone on the waitlist takes your place (their payment is your refund).

    Sorry I missed it. I have a couple small condos there (Village and Juniper Springs) and go up often with friends. We'll be there for New Year's Eve and will likely be having a gathering. Will anyone else be there who may want to join us for NYE?? I was hoping to hook up & meet you all this past weekend (snow was amazing but damn COLD!!!) but got there late on Friday & had to tend to my condo being remodeled on Saturday. So maybe next time, but do connnect with me if you'll be there the 31st.

    Hey there. I did not get on this trip but I am going on my own and staying in my own condo. Would love to be able to meet everyone to ski. Is there usually a meeting spot to get on the slopes? I'm a foolishly daring intermediate, do the blacks with no problems, usually enjoy the moguls and going fast on the groomed. I'll be heading up with GF who is a pretty solid intermediate, much more cautious than I. Anyone need skiing partners?

    December 11, 2012

    • Eddie

      Hey Ghada. We won't have a specific meeting location aside the condo since people will head out at different times. I can send you my contract info. Call me and I'll let you know where we're at.

      December 12, 2012

    • Ghada

      Thanks, Eddie. I just emailed you my number. Go ahead and send me yours when you get a chance.

    I have a full carpool with John Hawley and Stella. If you still need a ride please post your location and when you can leave and when you'd like to return. If you are driving and have
    space for more passengers, please post with the same info. Also, please let me know if anyone is interested in staying a 3rd night.

    Hey Everyone!

    One of our own has a friend that is an expert snowboarder and is offering intermediate & advanced lessons during our next trip to Mammoth (12/14-16). If you are interested in taking a small group lesson for a couple hours for only $50, please let me know as soon as possible since space is limited.

    Hi all, I'm looking for someone interested in coming back early Sunday morning. I have something that evening. If I can find peeps to drive back Sunday I'm a go for the weekend, if not, I'll have to wait to go until next year. :(

    November 13, 2012

    • Dennis

      Here's my plan: Do a half day of work on Friday and get up there in the evening. Leave on Sunday morning and return late afternoon. I will have gear with me and will rent a SUV.
