The more I think about this idea, I just think who ever is going to deal with the headache of making the arrangements should just do it for where ever. Even if it is Mammoth. It's not like people have to go. If they want to do this thing, they'll figure it out.

Getting a block of rooms at a discount is less committing than renting a huge house. That puts it back on the individual not the organizer to some degree. You'll just have to have a cut off date to reserve by and such.

There is just no way people are going to agree on a spot in the West. Unlike the East Coast, it's a dime a dozen for world class spots. Every Western state has awesome riding.

Just my thoughts.

So, who's gonna plan? Also, what would be the most central/enjoyable location for people who would be willing to come? I'm in Scoal with Bear being my closest. But I'd be down to travel to Mammoth or Tahoe for some good conditions.

Bachelor would be central if you're not including the states to the east. If so, it would seem Utah.

So far from what I can see, this has been appealing mostly towards local Cali people. Narrowing it down to that, who within that list would want to/be willing to meet up at Mammoth or something this spring? If we can figure that out, we'd be that much closer to actually planning something

Once we can get a decent head count, we also need a timing window. We got 16 yes's in the pole so there's a start. Its hard for students like myself to plan trips out because of tests, class, etc. Spring break for me is March 25-31. SO, if I were to plan SOMETHING, that would be the time frame...for this year at least. If that doesn't work, then I guess I'd be assed out of my own idea! hahaha but at this point it doesn't matter, just about the vibes

So I got some details down, and finished up my convo with the Mammoth Rep.

Keep in mind that this is during SPRING BREAK WEEKEND (so the prices can go down if we plan different dates) and this is just to give people and general idea of what we are trying to establish here:

I tried making this as similar to the East Coast Trip as possible, since they seem to have things down. It's a ski in/out resort, we can share rooms. Group rates only apply however, when we have at least 20 people. (20 People = Group Discount)

Mammoth Mountain Inn, Standard Hotel Room
5 nights (March 24 29, 2013) @ $129.00 per night + $20.00 Resort Fee and 13% tax =
$168.37 per night
$168.37 per night X 5 nights = $841.85
$841.85 / 2 people per room = $420.93 per person

$420.93 (lodging) + $276.00 (5 day adult lift pass) = $696.93 per person

Constructive thoughts/feedback are welcomed/encouraged. Again if this does not appeal to you, please from refraining from down playing it for the rest of us!

I think what they do at Jay Peak is get 6 person condo units. Then it's more of a "meet" and I think it's much cheaper per person for accomodations. Do they have any slopeside condo's at Mammoth?
