11/6/12 PM update - The house is now full. If you want to join us and stay somewhere else, we have people staying at this motel (http://www.entradalodge.com/) and this motel (http://www.yelp.com/biz/motel-west-bend). There are also a couple of spare seats left in the carpools going up. We may also rent a second house if we get enough interest, email Douglas (http://www.meetup.com/bayareabeersocials/members/524475/) on the beer group via meetup if you are interested.
If anyone wants to join me I'll be heading up to Bend, Oregon for Thanksgiving, and skiing Mount Bachelor (its about 1/2 an hour outside of Bend). They have been getting a lot of early snow this year in the Northwest and Mount Bachelor might a be really cool spot for Thanksgiving skiing (it's a great mountain!). They also do multi-day discount tickets (http://www.mtbachelor.com/winter/mountain/tickets/lift_tickets).
I will head up from San Francisco (FiDi) after work on Wednesday. I probably won't get all the way to Bend in one day, and stay somewhere in Northern California or Southern Oregon Wednesday night.
We will hopefully get an afternoon of skiing in on Thursday, then head into Bend afterwards. We will get a full day's skiing in on Friday and Saturday, return to SF Sunday morning. We will be cooking a pot luck Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday evening after skiing.
For this trip we have reserved a house in downtown Bend from Thursday to Sunday. Its a cool looking place, with a hot tub, and is very close to the center of town, right on the Bend Ale Trail (http://www.visitbend.com/Bend_Oregon_Activities_Recreation/Bend-Ale-Trail/). Here (http://imagesus.homeaway.com/mda01/56332965-d600-4b60-abf7-53af2e7c8be0.1.10), here (http://imagesus.homeaway.com/mda01/0d8d6011-ead7-40ec-846f-33762f411ef2.1.10) and here (http://imagesus.homeaway.com/mda01/998cc700-2c24-4a90-aa1a-a96cfbc26885.1.8) are some photos. There are various beds still available at different prices ($150-$175 for all three nights). Email me (http://www.meetup.com/The-San-Francisco-Skiers-and-Snowboarders/members/7097722/) via meetup to get the details.
We'll definitely be partaking of Bend's amazing beer scene (http://www.visitbend.com/Bend_Oregon_Map/Maps/Bend-Ale-Trail-Map/) on a night, the beer drinking part of the weekend will be its own event over at BABS (http://www.meetup.com/bayareabeersocials/events/144526232/?a=co1.1_grp&rv=co1.1) if you want to just join for that
