Default West Coast Meet

I was reading the forum and it looked like there was no conclusion on where to have the west coast meet and I thought we needed a new thread. So here it is..... My vote is for Whistler B.C.

Maybe Rogers Pass. Want to get your backcountry on?

For the West side meet, the crew who is organizing this was leaning towards Wolf Creek. Not a mega resort, if you want park/pipe, forget it, but the snowfall and free ride terrain is great. Plus it's low key not crowded and off the radar. The backcountry there is some of the best around. For beginners and the seasoned vet. Cheap lift tickets (High price $35 last year I believe) are nice too.
The other strong contender and rightfully so is Utah. Some of the best airport access, and reliable conditions. Stellar lift served terrain and excellent backcountry. Lift tickets are generally between $50-$60, a bit more at the 'bird.

Mr Right was the one pushing it. I think he is on interweb hiatus so he can work his ass off this summer to have the winter to ride. I don't blame him. I suspect come late August/early September we'll see more action.

So if you are pushing Whistler, what sort of deals, scams, incentives do you know of to make this more attractive? I am sure not opposed to the place, but it means a fairly long journey for almost everyone on the board.

as I said I was just throwing it out there... I didnt think everyone would come up to BC especially because most of you are in the states. I would be down for pretty much anywhere for a big meet on the west coast, just let me know when and where.

Well, not everyone on the board is going to make the meet either. >10 and <20 seems to be the rule.

This winter is a hard one to predict. There isn't an La Nina or El Nino so far. So the usual suspects that get hammered by these weather events are kind of an unknown. It's a "normal" weather pattern which has been so long in the past I don't remember what type of season Colorado had. I suspect that Wolf Creek will get hammered per usual, it might be a little of a disappointment in the Front Range/Summit County areas. Then again last year was supposed to be a very dry season in the rockies, and just about everyone broke snowfall records for the season. This set up also makes me believe that Utah will be a very good bet.
