: Lake Tahoe snowboard trip (end of feb/early march)

09-18-2005, 07:45 PM
so, any of you modders out there ski or board? me and a friend will be at the lake tahoe resort the end of feb begining of march for our yearly snowboard trip. anyone there interested in meeting up would deffinately be cool. went to jackson hole WY. last year and had a blast. this year lake tahoe, next year whistler BC. so if anyone is in the area or wants to also plan a trip out there and meet up, that would deffinately be sweet.

i know its like WAY early to think about snow, but winter is my time off from modding the car. so i look forward to it.
later dave

i ride on a 2005 model K2 recon riser 157mm carbon/kevlar composite snowboard, with switch N step-ins and vans boots. its pretty bad when my board costs almost as much as my winter car. :D

update: the dates are in. february 25th thru feb 3rd. 7 days 6 nights of pure adrenelin. we may also have a couple friends from there meet up with us also. last year in wyoming, we met this group of 8 irish guys. (some actually from ireland, lol). well, they might also come out. this is going to be one big *** huge mountain snowboard trip and party. so, even if you dont ski or board, just come on out and hang. we will be hitting hopefully 4 or 5 different mountains while were there, and hoping to bet some back country in as well.

tempting, cant afford though to rent at tahoe aint cheap, and then time off damn......i do snowboard though ;)

just show up man. plenty of room on the floor, lol. last year at jackson hole WY, we met this group of 8 irish dudes. those guys are FUNNY. hung out with them for a week. i think theyt are going to lake tahoe this year and meeting us there.

even if you guys can only make it for a day, it would be great.

any of you have a tv channel called FUEL tv? im hooked on this all winter, they always show snowboarding stuff from all over the world. alaska is my favorite. crazy big mountains. next years trip we'll be going to Whistler BC. i tried to get my friend to go to amsterdam this year, but he said he wants to board and (....left blank) in amsterdam. :)

the weathers getting colder i can wait till the first snowfall. i save all my vacation time for the winter(2 weeks). plus when we have a big snowfall here i ususally dont go in to work, im hitting the slopes. my boss usually knows why im not at work when it snows big that day.

10-16-2005, 08:53 PM

10-16-2005, 09:57 PM

10-23-2005, 12:34 PM
alright guys, i have the dates posted in the first post. only 4 1/2 months away....lets see, thats 134 +/- days left :D yeah, i get all geeked about boarding. about as much as my car, maby even a little bit more. theres nothing like racing your car, but then theres the feeling of going down a 3500'+ mountain on a snowboard hauling @ss.

10-23-2005, 07:48 PM
how much is all this going to cost me lol

10-23-2005, 07:55 PM
not sure, but i spent 1200.00+spending money last year going to jackson hole. this time airfare and hotel was [email protected] for me and my friend. then spending money and lift tickets. it will be about 1500.00 for me this trip. all you would need is lift ticket, spending money, and what ever else you need.

10-24-2005, 12:12 AM
you got the hotel already? and do you want some of the tibby guys going?

12-06-2005, 06:34 PM

I was up at Heavenly just a month ago. The lake is about 2 blocks away and there is tons of shopping and food all around there. I love going to Tahoe.

P.S. The gambling at Ceasar's sucks!

alright guys, im almost done packing. i had the dates wrong from my first post. i am leaving this saturday, and getting back march 5th. 2 dayum weeks 14,000+' above sea level. OMG!!! i cant wait. they are expecting 1' of fresh powder this weekend. sunday after we arrive, we are going kat skiing. 200.00 for 1 day of private back country boarding. i guess they take you up in a snowkat machine?? they even give you avalanche training, an avalanche beacon, lunch and a guide. this is going to be soooooo much fun. its almost more fun that running my friends 03 tib gt and owing him by a car..i said almost guys. lol

we are staying at the base of heavenly resort, right under the gondola. we are going to be at the following resorts, heavenly, squaw valley, north star, alpine meadows, kirkwood (kat skiing), and where ever else we end up at. maby even rent some snowmobiles and hit some untracked mountianous terrain that way. i have been boarding for 10 yrs now, and i am aware of all the risks i take.

my last will and testiment:

i here by donate all my mods on my 2002 elantra gt to the elantra xd community...minus the nitrous kit (thats sold already). LMAO...j/k guys.
in the famous words from arnold.... I'll Be Back :D
