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!

Hey Poutanen: I am from Hamilton as well! Well Mount Hope up on the mountain. Given that both of us come from the armpit of Canada, I think we will get along just fine!

I'd be in for a trip to SLC, or spring/summer trip to hood. Baker and Tahoe would be cool too.

She's really not bad I'm just starting to think I'm not cut out for this domestic thing! I'm more of a feral human being...

Sounds like a plan stan! Yeah I was in Grimsby on the mountain for a while, in Hamilton before that. My buddy lives right on Airport Rd. but he's trying to sell and move out here now too... Guess all my rocky mountain boarding pics are making him jealous!

seriously. I can barely be responsible for getting myself where I am supposed to be, let alone other people etc. due to the nature of my work (freelance, contractor shit) I never know what my work schedule is for the next week, let alone month! I do work a lot of weekends so I can ride weekdays, which also makes it hard for meetups. However, resort riding mid week alone>>>>>>>>>resort riding on the weekend with friends!

I love riding alone and on those rare days I want company it's not hard to meet new friends in the singles line. Isn't that what it's there for?

Oh, so that line isn't for you and your buddy to take advantage and swoop infront of the slow moving tourists line?

oh no, it most certainly is. When it gets busy then we all just know to go into the singles line lol. You do meet some pretty cool/interesting people on the lift.

I'm interested in a meet up, but have no desire to organize such a thing. There's too many choices in places to have a meet. But maybe regionalized ride togethers would be a lot easier. I would like to do a Hood summer trip too. But so many resorts to visit in the west... Baker, Hood, Snoqualmie, Bachelor, Tahoe, SLC, Colorado, Montana, etc. Then add in all the backcountry areas, my head is going to explode. Plus, I also work freelance / contractor work and never know when/if I'm working very far in advance.

Mixie and I carpooled, rode, etc. to Mammoth and Bear/SS a few times last season. I'm sure she'd agree the more the merrier, if people want to share rides, split gas / accommodations for local so cal day trips or overnighters to Mammoth or Tahoe. Since there seems to be a few socal people on here, would make sense.
