bay area carpools 2013/14

Hey guys, I know it's early but I'd like to meet some people to carpool with this winter. I can seat 5 people comfortably, but the 5th snowboard gets interesting, and I have AWD. I'll be getting the triple season pass but I'm mostly interested in northstar. Both my snowboarding buddies moved away last year so I really need to find some people to go with this winter.

I'm also planning on doing a snowcat trip. it's a lot cheaper than a heli ski day and gets you 14,000 vertical feet in a day, in untouched goodness. Anyone up for trying that too?

Who's interested?

I have a cabin at kirkwood so i wont need a ride but when you do the cat adventure let me know. My wife and I are most likely down for that.

I am a Vermonter living in California showing the locals how to keep it real!

Planning for next March. It's not too early... some cat operatore I looked at are already fully booked. Which area are you looking at?

The season is upon us. I'm still looking for more people to go to Tahoe with. I've got a buddy who's committed to going every other weekend and we'll have toom for 2-3 more riders.
