Snowboarding for noobs
So, Erin has been pestering to get a snowboarding for noobs event going. Anyone interested?

Here's the tentative basics:

Crystal Mountain, Sunday January 27th. Lesson package is $115 (includes lift ticket, lesson, and snowboard equipment rental), plus folks will need to make sure they have appropriate mountain wear and money for food and gas. If you have equipment cost will be cheaper. Details subject to change if we get better information. A non-refundable $25 deposit would be required, due by January 20th, the balance on the day of the trip.

You don't actually have to be new at this to join up.

What you'll get out of it is frostbite, Erin bitching at you, and a strained back after helping carry me off the mountain when I break my leg. In other words, some awesome stories and a pretty decent time.

All that said, who's interested?

don't forget the SNOWBUNNIES and BOOZE!

(yes, crystal mountain has a bar. and let me tell you, there is NOTHING like a hot buttery nipple after freezing your ass off for three hours.)

Nononono... It's SNOWBUNNIES and POWDER.

Kind of like hookers & blow, but cuter.

I've never been. If I can come up with the cash and a sitter, I wanna go.

I am just thinking that since I have no clue what I am doing it would be hard to take lessons while trying to take care of the kidlet. I have some time though.

I can't afford it, so you can take me off the list. I want to hear about how much fun it was after.

"I'll go! I have my own equipment and gear and prolly don't need a lesson though."

+1 Nicole (Emily's friend)

Checking to see who can give a ride and who needs one...

Jeff can give a ride for 1-2 people in his Mustang, but it's probably non-ideal snow car.

1. I need a ride
2. Emily needs a ride
3. Nicole needs a ride

4. Jeff can give a ride to 2 people if no one else is driving, but has a non-ideal snow car so would ideally need a ride as well

I'll go

Sadly, I can't afford it. But otherwise I would totally be down. And I think after I broke my leg we could limp down together as we would have 2 legs between us!

Basically waiting to see who ponies up and has cars. My car can seat 5.

Can you swing by my place Thursday or Friday with the deposit (I'm up north the early part of this week)? Address is: 2301 Fairview Ave E (ring WEISS). My cell is 206-501-5831.

if you break your leg

Your friends don't have to carry you, you get to ride on a sled pulled by a ski patroller!
