"Hey Boo!   Kinda relevant for me too...we had our 1st little one 6 weeks ago!   afaik, ski school won't take any kids until they're 2.5 years old and thats just mainly for childcare rather than skiing (although iirc, they do get…"

SteamboatRider replied to Stephen Worrell's discussion Where to stay
"Nice choice! 6303 or 6304?   Both are great units and are definitely the best two 4 bedroom units in the building. When you consider Bear Lodge is one of the very best buildings in the entire Mountain Village, I think you're going to have…"

So sorry that you didn't make it yesterday afternoon: it was a great group - Trudy, Rick, Kent & Julie, Dave (stbtskier) & Shannon, Laura (live2ski). We missed you.

Hope that business is going well - certainly sounds like it :-). But hope that you also get some free time to enjoy the great skiing and glorious weather. Boo

I hope that you both make it... just think "cold, refreshing beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer!" ;-)

Just a reminder. Drinks at Slopeside Grill at 4.30pm, if you and Louise are available this afternoon.

No worries! It is the sort of thing that i would do: you read what you think is written... It is quite funny actually: both of us waiting for about half an hour probably about 100 yards (but out of sight) of each other! :-)

Think that you are very sensible waiting inside. We were just being lazy: we had already done a few runs off of Thunderhead - so it was easy to just get off the lift and wait at the side, ready to ski off again.

Let us know when you get out. I am nursing a bad knee, but I am going to give smooth groomers ago tomorrow: i think it is the hard bumps (that are forming on the groomers later in the day that are murdering my knee).

Apres Ski, 4.30pm at Slopeside Grill, if you two can make it would be great :-)
At 6:26pm on January 12, 2009, Boo Boo said…
Really? That is bizzare... We were there 9.30am until 9.55am... Top of Thunderhead, just on the right as you get off the lift? Were you waiting at the bottom of Thunderhead?

We actually got recognised by another forum member (Allen?) whilst we were waiting for you... :-)

We are currently trying to arrange Apres Ski drinks on Friday, about 4.30pm. Originally thought Slopeside, although after "Happy Hour" at Mahogany Grill, beginning to wonder... :-D

Have got your mobile number (. Do you plan to be out skiing/boarding again soon?

Great, see you then :-) (hopefully we are recognisable)
At 8:16pm on January 11, 2009, Boo Boo said…
Ah great. We could meet up at about 9.30am for a few runs? Maybe at the top of the Thunderhead Lift (just on the right as you get off)? Would that suit you both?

Hi

No porblem, it was just on the off chance.

Yes, we are around tomorrow (Monday). What time are you on the mountain?

We leave on Sunday (before lunch).

Hi!

Are you still planning to do some runs tomorrow morning? Would you be free to meet up for a few runs?

Nice to read that you have been kept busy, looking at the webcam I thought perhaps Steamboat was getting a few punters onto the slopes, all in all considering the financial climate it looks as if people still want to ski and holiday, not sure what the UK input is to the local economy as the travel supplements still harp on about the poor exchange rate, mind you we only got $1.45 approx back on our first visit in 2000. In our company (small) 4 of us are off skiing this year, 3 to Europe and us guess where, the exchange rate never came into it for any of us.

Our long cold spell is coming to an end now and its back to wind and rain by Sunday, we did get down to -9 one night.
