The 2022-23 ski season thread.


Recommended Posts

We’re here in August 2022 hottest day of the year on tap but I don’t know if all y’all have noticed but it’s getting dark earlier..a lot of us are looking into new gear and ski trips to the northeast and Rocky Mountain regions. Post about it here and if you see any cool ski and ride and lifestyle videos post it here.  And in some place like Copper mountain they are still holding onto last skison

Flying United between SFO-Sydney and then Sydney-LAX on the way home... Confirmed for Business upgrade both ways (Thank God for 1K!!!).  

Flying Virgin Australia inside the county as they partner with United and get reward points/miles, plus they give me priority boarding and lounge access... And stuff with the 1K

 

Oh... And I'm taking my own gear. I get three free checked bags, so I figured why not.

My first time as 1K ... so glad they switched to a revenue program, makes 1K easy with the current fares 😁

Ive been twice for opening on Sunday this summer and it is empty for the first 20 minutes while everyone changes in the locker room .

I wouldn't mind trying a new Pennsylvania ski area like Blue knob or maybe hit up plattekill (never been) since I'll probably not do an ORDA card this season. Always nice to add new areas to the list. Maybe a PASR day at the knob indy peeps? Other than that Blue of course and trip(s) to AZ SB.

I got there for opening, just to find out you have to wait in line in the mall til opening to get into the locker room.  Last September I changed in the parking garage, but with yesterdays heat I changed in the locker room.  I was annoyed at first thinking everyone would beat me out to the slopes, but still ended up being the 3rd chair out

Plattekill is awesome when the snow is deep enough to ski the woods. It opens up a crazy amount of acreage. A week old storm can still have untracked . 
My favorite place!

Locker room wow...fancy schmancy.  If you boot up at your car? How far is the walk?

It depends on which floor. I usually park in the top floor so I have more 'privacy' for changing in and out of my clothes.... 

You got to walk down a flight of stairs and the walk is really not any further than from where you all park to the 6/pack or quad..
