Of course it's all up to you. I certainly don't go out of my way to travel outside of Colorado (Or far within state) if it's a hassle.
Sir, ur right...I guess this year decided to spend my travel budget to do a modest trip under the rope.

pics of you first! lol Okay okay here she is...



NO WAIT that's what I was dreaming about last night! Here she really is...

At Jay Peak:


Nakiska: (still learning to lean back and get more speed in powder!)


In the back bowls of Lake Louise (green board):


Fernie:


And finally hiking with me through Algonquin Park...


She took my advice last year and got laser eye surgery too so no more pesky glasses to piss her off while boarding.

Sorry for the thread jack!

nice! I was going to do a trip up to hood this summer but I ended up buying a forrester with the $$ instead . My old honda died and I hated putting chains on that thing anyway.

that way this I can just go where the snow is but I sure as hell hope it dumps in the sierras like two seasons ago!

its barely 80 today in the valley. Winter is coming I can FEEL it!!

Opening weekend in mammoth for my fellow socal peeps?

omg poutenen Im cracking up at my desk. Hats off to you sir. Hopefully she'll let you live after she finds out you posted her pic on a forum! No pics of me needed, as to quote BA I am a gnargoyle and Im also old.

I'm at a loss as to how this thread wound up with someone's gf's pictures posted. You realize this is going to get at least a thousand views hahahah. But yeah mixie, I remember going up to mammoth lakes area(Robinson Creek/Virginia Lakes area) in July/August those 2 years ago and campsites were still closed because of all the snow still up there.

Anyways back on topic: sounds like we are at three options at the moment:

A.) Set the destination to Tahoe or somewhere more accessable for non CA residents, and its also easier/cheaper for a majority of us west COASTERS

B.) Make this a Mt.Hood summer trip

C.) Make this a SoCal region meet instead of "west coast"

D.) More than one of the above? That also doesn't seem out of the question

I think the Hood trip can be in addition to any of your other options.

Keep in mind, if you organize this, it does put you on the hook. It's a lot of responsibility. MPD has got his routine figured out, and he does it year after year. Things change, personalities conflict sometimes, and most of all you are relying on the weather. It sounds like to me that Mammoth is known territory for you and might be easiest to pull off. Tahoe and other spots get a bit more tricky if you are not familiar with where to go. Deals can be found no doubt.

I would also recommend looking at March for the meet. It is most often the best month every season.

you can blame me, but Ive yet to read a post from poutenen without reference to his gf...so I figured some gawddamn pix were in order...

ahem. as for the rest of your post... And Im only speaking for *ME* here, I can't plan anything too far in advance. I don't have a real job, I do contract work.

However I will do my best to make it to a SoCal meet up if I can. And Im always looking for people for ride share and lodging share in mammoth.
