I just bought a ticket. Europe will again be re[pre]sented. Looking forward to trying to keep up. That ain't work--that's the way ya do it--moguls for nothin', chicks for free. More aptly put, "there's nothing you can buy that will help you." (Glen Plake)

Just got my schedule prolly through April. Looks like I'll be able to at least make Friday.

Have we gotten a commitment from Old School or Rutland Mike yet? Nothing against the rest of you lot, but I want to be able to hang out with the senior statesmen of the group. (safety in numbers y'know)

Hey, guys. 3 friends and I will be there that weekend. We'll hunt you down and ski some runs with you! Always good to ski with other bump addicts.

As an old peon Tahoe skier the last time I skied Railbender was before many on this board were born. I've never skied anywhere that has so many great long mogul runs at the gradient range I tend to enjoy most. So pounded the Internet today at work (not very productive today but hey its Monday) looking at transportation, lodging, discount lift tickets and costs today to make the meetup. Difficult to do this solo from the SF Bay Area for less than $1k though there is a California Zephyr Amtrak deal for about $900. But have now interested a friend who lives in Grand Junction so now my costs via airfare to GJT and his Subaru are down to $750 for skiing Thursday, Friday, Saturday including a couple days of walk to slopes lodging. So yeah maybe yet another pair of Twisters will show up? More in about a week.

Sweet!
I've only got a single day left on my 4-on-40-pack, but could probably get you/Donna/Mike a free pass for Loveland Sunday/28th if you're interested. I'd need to take the day off, so give me as much notice as you can.

Hey guys,

Taos Todd chiming in. Trying to talk the wife in letting me come up for the Friday. Last year I had a nasty cold and I was sort of out of it. We are having a stellar season around these parts. I'll keep everyone posted.

Shell gas stations (at least in Colorado) give you a 2 for 1 voucher if you buy 10+ gallons.
Of course that means you need to buy a ticket with somebody else the day you go skiing to be able to use it.
Some pass holders might have $80 vouchers left.
Besides that, I think the only way to get a significant discount is to get some sort of package deal with lodging.

Pulled the plug on my potential visit. Was looking promising a month ago but February has just been too droughty and long range forecasts continue to show Colorador, Utah, and the Southwest with below normal precip over the next couple weeks. So not the kind of packed powder conditions I prefer on bumps so not this year. Hope things turn out well for you Colorado folks since meeting up is an easy drive but not enough positives for so much time and money from this person far airfares away.

It's not looking good for me being able to ski with you guys, just so you know. I am scheduled to work every day except Friday and Saturday right now... and Friday and Saturday are the days when I'm 'most likely' to end up with something scheduled for work.

Someone quit at my work, so I've ended up filling the gap.
