Wolf Creek Meet '09

The West Coast meet has morphed and morphed and morphed. Not sure where it's going to end up, but enough 'rado peeps on this board still want to hit Wolf Creek up for a meet. I couldn't agree more. Wolf Creek is just one of those places. Once you go, you just want to keep coming back. So here is the thread.

Who's interested? Lift tickets and lodging can be found for relatively cheap and on much shorter notice. I know the backcountry around the pass I can say it's something special. Let's start planning...

Those who want to come in from out of town are more than welcome to get in on this. Chances are this is one of those places you won't soon forget.

I'm up for WC and the west coast meet, unless they happen on the same weekend. Someone just tell me who to pay and how much. And NO...I don't just hand out money to random people so don't ask.

Kill are you going to organize this?

Judging from what Mr Right (heh) wrote on the West Coast meet, he's already go plans a cooking. I am here to assist but I'm letting him drive (or throwing him under) the bus here. I think he may as so far have some dates already in mind. So let's see where it goes.

How many days does everyone want to do at WC? I was thinking about doing something like 3-5 days at the end of february/beginning of march if anyone else is down, I'm also not opposed to watching for a good storm (they do get a lot of good 30 inch storms) and just heading out on a friday or thursday night. Lodging is so easy to come by down there it just doesn't matter. Anybody have any clashes with these days or have a time in mind that would be better? We should try to get atleast one local appreciation day in because they are something like $20 lift tickets.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Count me in

Pretty sure I will be able to make it, depending on the dates. Have never made it there, even though its closer to me then a lot of the others I do goto. Pops has shown me pics of him skiing there in his prime, and looks like a killer place. Got a cousin who loves in Alamosa might crash there, unless you know of some good pricing for that area killclimbz?

There are some cabins by South Fork that sleep a lot of people and are reasonable. Something like $200 a night maybe less. I need to find 'em. Although I would love a free place to stay, I think our numbers would be a bit much unless you cousin owns a mansion.

5 days would probably be my preference though 4 would work. A three day trip down there is just too much driving imo. Late Feb would probably work for me. I know at least one co worker has a trip planned then, so I have to make sure there are no conflicts on my part once we start nailing down a date.

I was thinking along the lines of 4 days because I wanted to whip out 3 days at monarch on the way back but I would be happy to reschedule that and do 5 at Wolf Creek. South Fork would be a great place to stay and I think I know the cabins you are talking about Kill. Here is a good place to start when it comes to lodging, I wouldnt mind staying in Pagosa and running into some old friends in the bar and shooting some pool but that isn't really a priority.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

i'm going to be keeping an eye on this a bit. my wife and i are still wee beginners and wolf creek sounds great, but i'm not sure if our skill level will be up to riding alot of ungroomed terrain. I didn't think WC groomed much. powder does help the consequence factor of us beginners though.
