Kirkwood/Heavenly/No­rthstar day trip or overnight: Dec. 15th

**If you haven't already done so, please pay your $2 annual membership dues which covers the Organizer Fees that Meetup charges me twice a year. PayPal $2 ($2.36 will cover the transaction fee) to [masked].

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

For now, this is just a placeholder to see if some members would prefer to hit Tahoe this weekend vs. the weekend before. If you want to go, specify in your response which resort(s) you'd prefer to go to (I would go to Kirkwood for sure but can designate an organizer for Heavenly or Northstar), if you can only do a day trip or would be interested in an overnight, say what day(s) you're available, and if you're a driver (how many passengers are you willing to take, what area are you coming from) or a passenger who needs a ride. I'll try to add more details closer to the date and will help to organize carpools the week before, as well as accommodations if-needed.

The way that carpooling will work is you will PayPal me $5 (please make sure I get the FULL amount: $5.45 covers any transaction fees) upfront to hold your spot in someone's car, I've found that this prevents the flake factor quite nicely. FYI, I will assign spots in the order in which members pay the carpool fee and is in addition to splitting gas with whomever is in your car; all the money I collect will go directly to the drivers. If you end up not being able to go, I'll offer a refund only if your spot is able to be filled. If you don't need me to organize a carpool for you and are catching a ride with a friend, then you don't need to pay the $5 fee.

Let me know if you have any questions!

    Looking for carpool space for weekend 12/22-25 (Sat-Tue) to go to any Epic resort (NS,HV,KW) and staying in Reno. If your plan is matching and have not had lodging booked yet, I have extra room (2 queen beds) in Grand Sierra Resort for 3 nights (Sat, Sun, Mon) for the car I am carpooled with, which I booked back in Oct 65% off promotion for this 3 nights to trade with carpool ride, so you only pay the promotion price 3 nights; which is around $100/for all 3 nights (+tax and resort fee)

    If interested, please email [masked] with contact #. I am from milpitas but can meet with you near highway exit.

    Regards, Maria

    I hope everyone had as great a day playing in the snow as I did! Sorry if I missed you or didn't get to chat with you, but I'll be back on the slopes mid-January :) Until then, have fun shredding without me!

      Sorry our car is full but Teresa I believe has space. Sorry for the late reply.

    Is there a contact list; or, listing of where to meet? thanks! I'll leave from San Jose early Saturday.

  • Mari

    I don't know if I'll be able to go now, I have so much to do before I take off for Brazil next week! Regardless if I go or not, I'd like to help people with finding a ride if I can. Looks like Anthony has room for anyone who wants to do a day trip and RH is offering a ride (and lodging?) for anyone who can do an overnight. I'll collect a $5 driver's fee and can assign passengers that way. If anyone flakes at the last minute, at least the drivers will have some money to help with gas.

    I plan to drive. I should have my suv. I'm planning to rent my gear up there. I can drive early Saturday; and return Sunday afternoon. I have a place rented in south lake tahoe for Sat.; which should have extra space.

    December 10, 2012

  • Mari

    Can anyone volunteer to drive???

    December 6, 2012

    • Stephen P.

      I can drive if needed. My car isn't that great for carrying gear though since I don't have a roof rack and my seats don't fold down, so the boards and skis would probably need to go through the middle of the car. I'd most likely want to leave Friday night or Saturday morning depending on whats better for other people and return Sunday afternoon.

      Mari, we are taking ski bus...tahoe sun and snow company. you can join us on the ski bus, or if you want to drop off 1 person's skis or board with me on Friday night, we can take it on the bus because 1 of my girlfriends will be renting, and won't have gear of her own on the bus. L

    Hi Mari,
    Where do you plan to stay?

    November 30, 2012

    • Mari

      don't know yet. if there was more interest, i would have looked into getting a house for the weekend but maybe the better option is getting a cheap motel room on hotels.com or something like that

    Hi Mari:

    What is the estimate overnight lodging stay as well as carpool share gas cost? (I know it might change just a number/range) and where is normally meeting place for carpool in Saturday early morning.

    November 24, 2012

    • Mari

      meeting spot is usually someplace in the south bay, typically around campbell. but it depends on the drivers as well, they might want you to meet them at their place or somewhere along the way. dublin bart station is a good meeting spot (at the 580 and 680 interchange) as well as a safe (and free!) parking garage to leave your car
