Maybe you're definition of a meet is having to sleep with a bunch of other men, and possibly one or two women . But the point of this isn't to share beds and camp stories, it's get a group that loves snow as much as we do, and have blast with it. Memories, skill improvement, and the chance to hit up our not so local resorts. Yes they do have a slopeside, the one I listed, along with another one is slope side. Has a Gondola from the resort itself out onto the mountain! And compared to Jay, it's really not that much of a difference expense wise. Like I said, this is spring break week. Prices sky rocket at that time

spring break is about the worst time you could choose to try and do this.

I'm aware, I just gave the most expensive example so that we can work it down where necessary. Plus it was the only free open dates I know of for sure. Other dates are very do able, and even cheaper so its not too much of an issue

I'd say try that last weekend in February or for what is likely some of the cheapest the first week in April. Keep in mind, there is often tons of powder in April. If it's not powder, it's generally California sunshine and spring riding. Which is arguably the best in the US. I can't think of any place that gets it better. Just my thoughts.

Mammoth sounds like a good place. But, are there any inexpensive Hostels close the mountain that are fairly decent. Just in case the 2 person room thing doesn't work out as I might have to make a solo trip.

If you want a good turnout I really think the only 3 real options are Salt lake , Denver or Tahoe.........your gonna want something that's easy and cheap for everyone to get too with lots of lodging\food\entertainment options.

Been in contact with a Squaw Valley rep. Prices aren't established yet as they don't even know. But will keep you guys updated on the Tahoe region.
