Rick added a discussion to the group Meetings For Members

January 31 to February 7, 2015

My annual trip will be the first week of February, 2015.  As always, we try to make a meeting of forum members who are also in town at the same time.  Most common venues have been at Slopeside apres-ski or Stoker for lunch, but open to other suggestions.  Post if you will be in town at the same time, and we can coordinate something.See More

"I will be in Steamboat January 22 through February 5 so I will be there when you are there.  I would like to meet for lunch or after-ski.  I might want to try lunch at the new Four Points lodge. Jan (CrystalWA)"

"Yes, it is possible, but involves a lot of "cat tracks"; roads that were built in the early days to cut trails and build lifts. From Sunshine Peak, turn left and lead towards Cowboy Coffee on Traverse.  But at the top of Cowboy…"

Recovery in progress

Background for those who don't know me: I missed all last season due to a non-skiing injury. I still came up to Steamboat (thiis is the 16th straight year, plus several others scattered further back), mainly to see many friends who have been coming at the same time for all those years, but just relaxed, visited friends, saw things in town that I was usually too busy to bother with, etc. A relaxing time that helped my mental recovery, just not really any help to the physical… Continue

Yes, bar any complete toddler meltdown, Alex will be with us. We are leaving it to later in the week with the hope that he will be better adjusted.

Happy skiing today :-)

Hi Rick, hope that you got to Steamboat ok and maybe even got some skiing this lovely sunny day.

Would you be ok to meet up on Thursday at 5.30pm at Slopeside Grill? Lois

Hi Rick. We are looking at either Tuesday or Thursday. Will get back to you with details of time and venue (have asked Kent for suggestions). We have arrived safely now and everything is great. Lois

Hi Rick, I have left a comment for Kent to see what days he could go. Maybe set a date that works for all of us and then see who else can come along? Do you have forum access during your trip or can you email me your mobile?  Lois

Sounds good, we love both, Slopeside has great hot chocolate. I can't really pick a day since my kids are going too and that makes for a sometimes unpredictable schedule when we're picking him up from ski school. When y'all set a date/time/place let me know and I'll try my best to make it. The hubby and I both try to take at least one afternoon for an apres ski date so that would be fun.

Rick... we are always interested in a party! A close friend of mine and my brother Tim, who works on the BC Lift Line will definitely be there! Afternoons work best for us as we haven't been to the Boat in 25 yrs and will be ripping up all the new terrain and powder stashes we can find during the day!

Whoo Hooo only 5 more days! We arrive Sunday afternoon, flying into Hayden, and will be there all week!.... Look Out Steamboat..... the Wild Boys from Kansas City are a comin into town!
