the title of this thread was "who is interested in a west coast meet" people posted and some were interested.
while we still never decided what exactly "west coast" really means, we can ALL agree it's better then the "east coast"
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.
Perhaps those east coasters can get together because conditions generally suck there regardless of time or place. So they just do park laps and groomers and drink? out west we have sooo many awesome options to go to and a lot of people are burnt from last years crap season. 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.
