The 'West Coast" meet up will likely never take off in the way you want it to. I'm not being negative here, I'm just pointing it out. The biggest reason I see for it not working is that in the East, it's all close together. People come from 9 states away, but it only takes them 9 hours to get there. Out here on the West, 9 hours away is like South Central Oregon to Western Washington. Hell, it takes me 6 hours or so just to drive from one side of Washington to the other. Point is, we're not close together out here like they are back East. A meet up in the West sounds great on paper, but realistically, it just doesn't work out well. Now, regional meetups are a different story.

Actually I can plan in advance... Makes the wait really tough though! Every year we have a big family party on the August 1st long weekend at the cottage. Haven't had a bad weekend yet!

Have you rode Jay Peak before? I've had 4 separate vacations there (all planned in advance) and never had bad snow. That's not to say they don't have bad seasons/spells, but I've always had at least packed powder there, if not TONS of fresh powder too... Plus there are lots of off-piste runs where you can find powder stashes. It's not the west but it's about as good as it gets in the east.

We had a crap season last year? Up here we had record snowfalls...

so. organize one. Start a new thread "details for west coast meet HERE"

tho it looks like you don't have many takers, sorry. Im just curious, but is there anyone that can plan a vacation 4-6 months in advance? I sure as hell can't. Toss the weather factor in and I can see why there's a lack of commitment.

I sure as hell don't want to spent the $ on a plane ticket and lift ticket unless Im getting powder days. And due to my employment situation that's not even possible.

But If Im riding crap man made snow, park laps and groomers well...I can do that an hour from my house.
With all due respect, if you're not interested then you don't need to be involved anymore. It isn't necessary for you to keep posting negative remarks, trying to devalue it just because it doesn't interest you. This isn't about having an opportunity to get the chance to hit a good resort, since as you've continuously pointed out we have MANY. This was about having an opportunity to MEET up with each other, as the title suggests. Also it's fine you don't like Bear, but again you don't need to start making general negative remarks on the place just because they're YOUR personal issues. Pretty sure Bear is on top 5 for their park at least. Where is Mt.High? Anyways, that's neither here nor there. No takers...we have 10 people in the poll who hit yes. Even that would be cool still as we would all probably bring friends along if they're Cali locals

I shouldn't have to start an entirely new thread because certain people find it non beneficial to them. As was already previously mentioned, maybe this should have been changed to a SoCal meet. If that were the case, PLANS don't need to be made, as we would know who would already be in the general vicinity. It'd be easy then to ask whose down to meet up for a weekend type of thing. Or a summer at Mt. Hood. Or even both. This should be a constructive conversation, not destructive. People gave their reasons why it didn't appeal to them. You don't see them trying to devalue it for everyone else now.
