Gretchen and I are supposed to go up to Tahoe in a week, and this is a problem.
#1 There's no snow, the resorts that are open have about 10% of the terrain open.
#2 Even though we booked this week last year, I was JUST informed that my timeshare membership has expired as of Jan 1. (30 years) If I want to pay the $700 plus maintainence fee up front I can still use the week.
I really don't want SES to be our first day on the snow.
So, Salt Lake City is about a 12 hour drive, only 2 more than Bend OR. So I'm thinking, screw the condo, road trip time.
How's the snow there? Sounds like the whole country is hurting, but is most of the terrain open in your area? Where's a good place to stay? We don't need anything fancy, just a good bed and a hot tub that's hot.
Where's the good riding?
Most important, if we do this, we would like to hook up with some of the people from SLC that we have come to know at SES (or any other Bomber. Best way to ride a hill you don't know is to follow somebody that does.) Billy, Dave, Kevin, help me out here.
Hey Billy, I've been flying a trainer kite for a while, love to try kite boarding.
Thanks in advance for any input.
