    If y'all are talking about brews... I might drop some goodies to Dana.

    I intend to attend this year. Gonna drop the idea to the wife now.

    Dates are actually good for me.

    We had the same kind of crap up north. It was called "Olympia" and was referred to as "Deer Pi$$". I flew to Colorado years ago for a recording session and decided to bring my own brand of beer. As it turned out, I'd not thought of an un-pressurized baggage compartment. Imagine my surprise when the case came down the ramp dripping with blown-off caps! Needless to say, I simply vanished. :drinkup:

    Here's a local article on the snow in Utah currently. Yahoo snow report for Utah

    I have slacked off and will start researching this weekend. I hear Park City gets crowded with the locals, and that Solitude and that Brighton are good, and more isolated with less crowds.

    Possible attendees:
    Dana (DanaMac) + possibly 2-3 - brother and a friend or two may show (different brother this time)
    Matt (hoskm01)
    Mitch (mitchgo) +1
    Michael (Argos)
    Tom (TomTom)
    Les (Stuttering Stan)

    Argos - how about your bro?

    We may need a second vehicle. Mitch - would you be driving out or flying?

    I'm going up skiing this monday!!

    This was last week but we had 6' of snow in a week in a half!

    I would fly in this time. I'm actually not sure if I will be able to make it this year. Finances are extremely tight for me this year due to all the mistakes I've made this year lol. I should no if I can by early febuary

    It looks like the dates would work out with my boss as he had his own vacation he is doing in febuary. So If I go most likely he would too.

    Matt can probably get us good car rental rates as much as he travels and rents. But I did get a screaming deal a few weeks ago through CostCo for a car rental while in MA. So I will look into that as well. It would need a different driver listed though, as I will have my vehicle.

    I will post more info this weekend.

    Not late February, or all the same?

    I slacked too but have researched places to stay. I have the old comparison spreadsheet going, will send a link shortly.
