Can I join your ski/board trip this winter?

Hello everyone.

My ski trip this year fell apart due to lack of interest among my friends. My cousin and I are the avid riders (Intermediate level I guess).

So we are asking around to see if anyone maybe needs an extra two riders in their group to cut down on costs.

We are 29 and 26 respectively.
We are professional engineers.
We both snowboard, and generally ride double diamonds or go into the trees. We have been known to hike to spots to get a clean run. We are known to go out of bounds to hunt for powder. We are not the biggest fans of groomed runs.
We both drink (however I generally don't drink on these trips. But if everyone is doing it.....)
We don't smoke cigarettes.
We try to make sure we are up in the morning for first runs. This is generally the only time we do the groomed runs, when they are nice and clean and fast lol.

If we sound appealing to you guys, please PM me your trip details or ask me any questions.

If anyone has a cottage/condo or something and wants to make a deal with us please let us know!

We are based in Michigan/Windsor so we are more than prepared to fly somewhere.

Thanks guys!

Nope, this is where the fun's at. Away from the Jerry's.
Roman, just head for Utah, stay in the valley at a budget hotel and chase conditions. Buy passes at local shops for discount, take your lunch, drop a few brews in the snow and ride!

Canada $ in the toilet, so do the Powder Highway!! http://www.ski.com/powder-highway

Personally, would drop Panorama and add Lake Louise or Castle Mountain near Fernie. However Fernie, Kicking Horse and Revelstoke are three of the best resorts in the world.

Have fun!

Well if this doesn't get me pumped up for Steamboat, I'm not sure what will. Got some new sticks I need to get some bindings for. Bring on the snow!

I dont think I blew it. I've met lots of cool people in the trees.

Honesty is the best policy!

Thanks for the suggestions guys!

We are doing some pricing for Jackson Hole right now

+1 to trees, storm days, steamboat trees on a storm day, Utah, Jackson, Fernie/Revelstoke, anything BC. Add a powder cat day or two at Island Lake Lodge before or after Fernie.
