What we're about

Do you love to ski, but find it hard to connect with others in your age group? Do you have the hard-earned luxury of being available to ski on weekdays, (when it is less crowded and less expensive), but the people you know can only ski on weekends? Then join this meetup group! Our intention is that our group will have events that are member-initiated, and will also act as a site where members can meet others in their area to share rides, connect socially, and enjoy great skiing together. We will look for deals at various ski areas and post them, so that members can take advantage of special offers. I envision that we will start out with day trips to ski areas that are around two hours from Boston, but if there is interest, we could expand to overnight trips. It would be great to include cross-country skiing too.
