    We planned to go tomorrow, but both kids are a little sick with a cold, so it's up in the air??

    My son just spent all last week skiing with his school class.

    But actually, I don't ski at all, I just never learned.

    Mt Bachelor in Bend OR is the best. All the others suffer from heavy wet snow rain and ice.

    Used to ski, but now just snowboard most of the time now. Usually always in Vermont.

    The kids are 8 and 10, both started when they were about 4, we would put them in the little tykes class. Even today, they both do their level and age ski classes every day when we ski for a week, then when they are done, my wife hits the slopes with both of them for hours. My son may be 10, but he ski's like an expert now.

    At my age, I don't want to risk destroying my legs, it would wreck my daily routine and responsibilities if I was injured. I'll just stick to riding my road and mountain bikes in the summer.

    The weekend traffic on 70 along with the Texans and Californians doesn't seem worth it. How was it going on a Thursday?

    Love Vermont. Friend has a home up there and the skiing/snowboarding is great. Been up there in the summer too. Really nice place.

    Speaking of Vermont. Snowed in and Vermont-Uconn college hockey is on. So all good. ;)

    I live up in summit county and if i go on the weekend, which i may do a couple times a year. I go for just an hour or two, first thing in the morning and that is fine. But not worth the drive from the front range no way. Mid week is awesome, even on powder days, of course the drive on 70 can be a nightmare in the snow.

    I feel bad for the folks who can only go on the weekends, or god forbid for the week over christmas break. :chair: These are usually the families who may only be able to go during the kids time off school. The crowds at those times are fucking insane! throw in having to deal with the kids, and well it is an amazing feat of dedication on the parents part.
