    I would be happy to do an article and/or start a thread, most likely both. I should be able to get this going in May when patchskiing post-season gets going after most of the resorts are closed.

    Howdy!

    So, this Friday I'll be at Squaw. I'm meeting up with a ski diva I've never met before. I don't think she's on here. The rest of the weekend is up in the air. I was thinking Alpine on Saturday, and for Sunday-Monday, play it by ear...Would be awesome if we could ski together on your days off, but I know you are tied to Northstar....

    Who else will be at Squaw this Friday?

    See yous.

    We kind of cheated on this one last year !

    Rode the tram up and walked down that way to the base. lol
    Free uphill if you have a Squaw pass. Else the tram is free for all going down.

    Snow will likely be on the Shirley section all summer !

    Packing, particularly skis, is part of the trip. I always pack as early as possible, and enjoy every second. Even for a day trip, which I do a lot. Loading the skis on the car, ahhh, the pleasure

    Hmmm now their web page says "open" through May 7th ........ but then qualifies it by saying that daily ops are still only though April 23, but might be extended i.e. weekends of 4/30 and 5/6 only post 4/23. I'm so confused ........

    Not sure. We want to, we have MCP's to use up. I don't see us getting there before we go to Colorado but maybe when we get back.

    Dilemma! I was thinking of perhaps trying Sugar Bowl this Saturday (never been there). Would anybody be around this Saturday, and willing to share a few runs? (pinging @Bobalooski since we chatted about this early this season)

    fI I do, I think I will get tickets online today, they have a small discount that puts them at 93. I was hoping for something cheaper, but it seems it won't happen. And I am curious about the cross skiing there, whether there are mild trails where my wide could have something to do if we do get passes.

    Anyways, if this doesn't fly, I would be at Rose, and I am assuming I could tailgate with you guys on the way back

    Cheers!

    If somebody with a season pass can hook up with you at SB on Saturday and they have remaining "friend" discounts they can get you 50% off the lift ticket price. I won't be there on Saturday and don't have friend discounts left, so I can't help you on the price or with a tour. However, I can tell you that a Royal Gorge cross country trail does connect with the base of Disney on the Village side. It is a pretty flat trail that goes all the way through the meadow and over to the main Royal Gorge entrance. I doubt it will be groomed, though, because Royal Gorge officially closed last Sunday. If you go to the Royal Gorge website you can see a trail map and how it connects with Sugar Bowl.

    Even if you ski sugar bowl, from SB to N* is what, 20 minutes?

    I'm highly likely to attend. Will have to consult with the boss on the plans before I commit 100%

    Meantime, here is a link for anybody who is uncertain of exactly where Phil means. If you click this link on your phone and then navigate, it should get you to within 100 yards and then just look for the banner:
