Yeah, if I was back in the Hamilton area I'd be going to the East Coast meet for sure. Jay Peak is 9 hours from Hamilton but 100% worth it. I'd drive up to that far to go to a meet out here.

I shouldn't say I have no interest in the West Coast... I guess I just keep hearing of the heavier snow and I count my blessings that we get the light fluffy stuff here. The heavy stuff kills my knees by the end of the day!

Ultimately I'd like to try out as many resorts as possible! I think it's going to take a few years to fully explore the Canadian rockies first, and IF we start getting bored with our local hills maybe we'll start doing some touring into Colorado, and maybe over towards Wolfies neck of the woods.

I'm hoping our finances are good next summer, in which case we're going to go check out Argentina for some boarding. I can't get enough of the local hills in the winter, so my tourist dollars would be better spent on a Southern Hemisphere resort in the summer.

A Canadian Rockies meet would be great! Maybe I should take the bull by the horns and get one going?!?

Good luck to this meet, sounds like fun!

Sorry, but Mammoth just doesn't work in that regard.
I like Tahoe. Have you looked into any of the prices before by chance

Yeah but CA alone is about the same size as most of the upper east coast combined. Driving the distance of CA is basically the same thing for people around the east coast to meet in VT. Kinda why I wanted focus on the west coast, not mid west. That should be an entirely different meet, like at CO or SLC.

Just depends on where you are flying from. RT from Denver is about $300 give or take based on time of year and your fly days. Probably in the $600 range for an East Coaster.

Tahoe is great. It's been decades since I've ridden there. Kicking around going out there for the splitfest this season. I'll know in a few weeks if I will commit or not.

Fair enough... If you did it around Mt Hood you could probably get people from Vancouver to California going.

IMHO there aren't enough meets on here. A lot of the car and bike forum's I've been on over the years have tons of meets. Several times a year, and sometimes they'd include other groups to get giant meets going!

It's a great way to put a face to the name, see things first hand, etc.

Colorado and Utah are not the Midwest. They are considered the West. FYI.

By every major regional, news, urban organization FYI. I didn't see fires in the mid west when referring to Colorado. Just because it's on the eastern most edge of what is considered the West doesn't mean it's not part of what is considered the territory.

I honestly don't know where the line is drawn, but it's somewhere along the Kansas border...

Edit

Here you go.
