That's too bad. We're about 30 mins from the cabin right now. It's touch and go whether the kiddo will be able to do ski school. She picked up some crud too.

Our kids were sick the entire week too. No flu, but fevers, coughs and an ear infection.

Edit: You might want to cancel tonight if you think she can't go...might be a 24 hour cancellation rule there.

I'm gonna try to make it up there in time for some pm riding. Best case scenario early afternoon and we can meet at your cabin since I can't check in until 3...worst case scenario is that i have to do late night solo laps at like 7pm till close.

We are doing the carriage ride at 640pm if any of you are interested to do that with the kids. Call ahead and reserve a spot, reservations recommended.

I won't be there with the wife and kids so I'll just be riding the slopes. Will be there 5ish and Leo knows what I'm wearing. I'll probably be hanging around the Clipper and Loki quad. My wife's cousin's coming along as well.

Word. I will probably try to avoid the 20 minute lift line at the clipper but will probably take a few laps at loki and also buck. Not planning on doing much park riding tomorrow unless i get up there earlier than anticipated don't like riding park in the dark anymore

I'd be surprised if the line at the clipper is really that bad in the evening; usually isn't. If it is I'll head back to the Ridge. See you guys tonight.

Was surprised at how good the snow was at Crystal for mid-March. Wish I could've gotten out today as well.

Speaking of Crystal; these resorts up north have had a great year for snow. David_Z reported on aGNARchy that Crystal is going to stay open as long as possible, well into April.

With that said, I'm making tentative plans to take my girl up there and try this ski school thing again on 3/30. Just a day trip this time.
