Default 2012/2013 Season

Just thought we could get a discussion going about where people might be over the next season, how long you plan to be there for, and if there are any goals for the season?

I'll be spending my second (with hopefully many more to come) season in Whistler, BC. Was meant to be just a holiday that turned into a bit more haha I would like to improve my riding in steeper more technical terrain and work on park, Would like to get a 3 off a L jump.

most of my riding (as usual) will be in Michigan. have a 5-month old daughter right now but I am most likely going to get back out west for at least one trip, 4-6 days, probably UT but depending on weather could be just about anywhere. I am also trying to finagle my way in to a short road trip to Michigan's Upper Peninsula where there is a resort about 11 hrs drive from me that is supposed to be legendary, by Midwest standards. It's just so far away though and with the newborn at home I will probably have to postpone that trip again... it's been onmy list for several years just haven't been able to work it out yet.

Due to securing prime location that is ski in but walk out I'll be spending another glorious winter in Breckenridge mocking snow carnies, picking on Texans, and shredding the gnar.

Started riding about 20 years ago, never got a ton of days in, going for my 3rd good season in a row now, aiming for over 100 days at Loveland this year with the midweek pass. As of right now I can ride 5 days a week - don't work until 5 and it takes about 35 minutes to get from Loveland to Bergen Park for work.

Also planning to visit Monarch to burn some or all of the 3 free days, as well as a scouting trip during Silverton's unguided season (Dec) with at least one, hopefully two more from Jan-March.

Pray for snow.

I'll be mostly at Snoqualmie Pass, with some days at Crystal, Stevens, Baker, White Pass and possibly Hood thrown in for good measure. Oh yeah, and pre-season at Mt. Rainier.

I'll be in Breck 12-12/12-19 already booked. Might try to finish my patrol training at Cresant this year, would have last year but it was a mud hole. Other then that my goals are to slide fast, have fun, and not die....or break anything.
