What we're about

I started this group back in August 2009 to get people to do adventures and outdoor activities with me. I guess we are all craving fun and adventure because the group took off like a rocket!!
Today we have an amazing team or organizers, and more and more people keep joining us to do more and more fun stuff. Everywhere I go I see great people meeting and making friends with great people. 
We also do trips: international travel and local travel. If you are interested in group travel and finding traveling friends to have fun all over the world, you have found your group! We do amazing off the beaten path trips and adventure trips, and sometimes even some relaxing "drinking margaritas on the beach" type trips too.

So let's keep on having fun, let's see where it takes us, and let's see how much fun we can handle!!!
Here are some of the things we have done and will do. Let me know if you are itching to do anything here (or not here) and we’ll make it happen:
Bungee jumping
Hot air balloon
Rock Climbing
Mountain Biking
Go Kart
Trips all over the world

Ski /Snowboarding Season Kick Off Social! New Friends, Discounts + more!

Burton Santa Monica Flagship Store

The ski and snowboard season is here! Come hang out and meet other people to ski/snowboard with. Or, if you are new and are interested in meeting others that snowboard/ski or thinking about it, join us. :)

The biggest thing stopping you from skiing/snowboarding this winter is if you don't know people who go. Here is your chance - everyone at this events wants to go!

What's awesome about our meet-n-greet? We are hosting our meet-n-greet at the Burton Flagship Store! Besides meeting people to hit the slopes with, we also get a 25% discount on new gear! This includes Step-on!
25% discount EXCLUDES Hitchhiker split bindings, [ak], Analog, and Mine 77 products.

Burton will be raffling off 1 snowboard to a lucky attendee. Everyone attending from Meetup will get a ticket!

If you haven't gotten your season pass, I recommend the Ikon Pass! We already have trips planned to use the pass at Mammoth, Aspen, Steamboat, Big Sky, Squaw/Alpine, and maybe even Snowbird! The last day to buy an Ikon Pass is December 8!

Let's kick off the season and get to know other members by having a Meet and Greet so everyone in the meetup can socialize and get to know each other.

This event is cross-posted on several LA based Ski/Snowboarding groups so other people not on this group will be attending. In past years we've had 50 or more people show up!

Skiing and snowboarding is fun with friends! This is a great way to meet new friends so you can plan your trips!

This event starts at 6 but goes late - so if you get off work late or have to fight traffic you can still come out and make friends. :)

I'll bring some beers to share, but feel free to BYOB!

Dogs are welcome in the store.

We created a Facebook group for people across all the different Meetup groups in So Cal to plan trips and trade tips. Join HERE.

We are doing a group trip to Snowbird (Ikon Pass resort) Details HERE.
