I could do either one, but 30-3 is maybe a little better for me. I'm realizing that with other commitments on my plate this winter, WTF is probably a pipe dream. :mad:

I spoke with Schweitzer mtn. resort services director yesterday (that phone call was 3 weeks in the works) about the carving event for 2017.  I will continue working on generating interest by the resort and see what I can do to make it a recognized event.  Looks like we have 3 people interested...hmmm, what can be done to increase interest?

I count 4 people.  Enough for an event, but not enough for a convention.  I'm still in.

Igor is probably in, and Octavio is looking at his work schedule to see if he can make it. I'm in regardless.

Hey guys, by the way, we've been saying Jan 30 - Feb 3, but I've been assuming I'll ride through Feb 4 (Saturday). Just to make sure we're all on the same page. 

Also, how about Max (Gray on Tray)? Garrett (Buster)?

ATC is the 5th-11th of February.  I would like to have the option of making a trip for it.  I wonder if we would loose a few to that event.  Evan usually makes a trip down there, so we might loose him.

Darn ATC...should we look at one week earlier? Keenan, would that work for you? Mark, would that be better for you?

23-27th.  Let's make it so.  I need to book this before my wife schedules any work events that week.  This is only a little over two months away.

I think a week sooner would be better, the season before last the backside was closed on the 4th of Feb.  I think this season will be better than that, but you never know.  I sent a message to Jim Callen (the owner of bomber) asking permission to post info about my boards, it has been over a month and no answer from him.  I'd like to go as a manufacturer,  but if I am not welcome.....WTF!?  So I'm not sure if it is even something to worry about.  I am planning a trip to Utah Feb. 18-26.

What can we/I do to increase interest,  it seems the greater turnout the better. I don't think discount for lodging is important, You say lift ticket discount can be had for same online, be aware that liftopia tickets are not a fixed price and as they sell more the price can go up (this is info I got from the marketing director at Schweitzer)   

I feel that definite dates are important and would like to solidify that so I can continue conversation with events director at Schweitzer.

Can you guys get more to chime in?

I would be in Jan 30 -Feb 3.  I won't fit any other dates comfortably. Got 2 trips planned before and after. Set a definite date soon.

Keenan, have we met?

I don't know, I've been around the NW a bit, and eaten more than my share of snow.

 BTW Jim has no intern, he is the only one running the show right now.  Try messaging Bryan Sutherland, he might have a secret contact line. If you get a hold of either of them let them know the post counter isn't working on the site.

Hey Mark, have you ever reached out to the Nakiska / NES crew up in Canada? Maybe some of them would be interested?

I am FB friends with Freddy Ansara and I thought a few others.  Have not had much luck carrying a conversation with them.  After we solidify dates I'll send him a message.

As for dates, we are going to be announcing  a Tahoe Trenchin' Convention at Kirkwood very shortly. Dates will be the 13th-17th of March.  Don't know of that makes any difference for you guys.

I wish i knew how to add a poll to the beginning of this thread.  23-27 or 30-3?  I think one of you locals should make an executive decision.

Schweitzer sent me a ticket deal: $99 for a 2-pack with no blackout dates, good anytime in the '16/'17 season. Tickets are print at home and transferable. You can only buy the tickets on Dec. 1, and you can buy multiple packs. Link here, if this doesn't work for you, PM me with your e-mail address and I'll forward the original mail.
