Well here I think is how this should go for this year. We do a "test" trip, or rather without the sanctioned transportation, since there will be norcal, socal and perhaps even out of state TC'ers who may want to go. I was thinking of April 17th and 18th. So we would need a place for all of us to stay from the 16th (midnight-ish arrival)and checkout the 18th. Doing it this way at least for now allows everyone to work on their own transportation to get there. All who are interested just put down "in". Lets see who bites....

OK, I'm ready. The snowboard is waxed, season pass paid, and I've been hitting the gym 3 times a week. All we need now is 5 feet of snow.

What ya mean it's only August !! ??

(But hey, Tiki-Ti opened a few hours ago).

April is to late in the season, especially for Snow Valley.
My recommendation is Mt Baldy .Beginner , intermediate and advanced runs there.
If you have ever been there you know what I talking about.The best kept secret
in So Cal.I have been going there since I was kid growing up in Glendora .
There is lodging close by as well.It's very old school.

Mammoth actually opened several lifts last weekend. Then it got hot and then the snow melted.

As as result I went drinking at Tiki-Ti, Don the Beachcomber, and Trader Vic's all in one week. That made me feel better.

I think this sounds like fun! I ski in Mammoth and I have gone to their Tiki bar, which would make a good place for a party, and yes, the spring skiing in April is my favorite, too. Keep us posted where and when.

Here's the Mammoth plan.

Sat, Jan 9th 10:00am - Meet at the big sign in front of McCoy Station.

Sat, Jan 9th 5:30pm - Meet at Lakanuki for apres-Ski cocktails.

I'll be there. (Will you?)

The recent California storms have dropped almost 5 feet (!!) of new snow at Mammoth. The current base is 5-8 feet and it's still dumping. I'm guessing the whole hill will be open by next weekend.

Well my tiki ski plans have been on hold as I wait for the bad news for the weekend of the 9th.... I will be in the non-snow area of Phoenix that weekend for work.. Ya had to pick THAT weekend!
I'm going to try and do a run up to Mammoth on the 16th of January regardless. Hopefully some folks will be able to make it up there this year! I will leave our Cult of the Eye Scrimshaw mug at the Lakanuki if I can drag my broken body to the bar.
