    This is a little early and will be updated at a later date but I wanted to get this on the books Incase anyone is thinking about snow ⛄️

    The first “East Coast Connection” will be held at Mt Snow, Dover VT from 1/26/20 - 1/29/20. I will be skiing Mon/Tues and possibly Wed before heading home. Obviously choice is your on what you want to do.

    There are multiple different options for lodging. I personally will be staying at the Snow Lake Lodge at Mt. Snow. Food/Bar on premise(sports bar-ish), indoor and outdoor hot tubs, included breakfast. They have numerous stay and ski packages to choose from at the SLL and others (I will update the event when the booking is opened for the winter fun).

    The town is small but have a lot of neat places if we wanted to have a get together dinner. The ski resort is for everyone, novice to expert, groomer to park, trees to bumps. It is a great time for all.

    For the non-skiing spouses/significant others there is a spa located at Mt. Snow as well.

    Hope we can get a nice group!!!

    It should be a good time. Hopefully you will be able to come. There will be opportunities i'm sure to split a room. There are a few airports if flights are cheap. I live 5 minutes from one of them and drive by the other 2 on the way. Id be more than happy to do a pick up.

    Im hoping to come out west next year!

    Just as a little update on pricing because I know some people are starting to plan

    January 2019: Mt. Snow for 2 people (best friend and myself)

    2 nights (Sun/Mon) at the Snow Lake Lodge (Continental Breakfast included)
    2 2day lift passes (riding days of Mon/Tues)
    $320 total
    $160 per person

    This year coming up Jan 2020 i'm estimating that the price will be comparable. The meet is planned to be for 3 nights and 3 riding days.
    Nights (Sun/Mon/Tues)
    Riding Days (Mon/Tues/Wed)
    My estimate for the added night and lift ticket is around $80 give or take totaling approx. $240-250 per person. Obviously this is only an estimate and can change on room type, people in the room, etc.

    In the Mt. Snow complex there are a few different places to stay/options for the ski and stay packages. I am planning on the Snow Lake Lodge mainly because it is cheap, clean, and food and drinks on site.

    There is a shuttle that picks up and drops off for the 3 minute ride from the Lodge to the base of the mountain.

    If there are any questions, please feel free to ask (here or Facebook group). I am really looking forward to this little trip and meeting some new people and hanging out with some old friends.

    I called the lodge this morning and no availability/pricing info was available yet, but I gave them my info and they put me on a notification list, so they'll email me when the room/dates become available.

    Taking off a weekday will probably be tough for me, but I'll try to make it Sunday. It's good to see an East Coast event again. I miss the days of the Jay Jam and the comps at Ragged.
    RVL8 Condors - The Flex will be with me, always...until I break them

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"
