Next week, I will totally call in sick.. i just wanna ski!!

What about Sunday?

Posted by Nerhael on Dec 11, 2008
I'm game for that weekend, Saturday may be better though... Though it is the office xmas party friday, so Saturday may in fact be worse. Hrm.

Our ski passes are good for mon-friday during the day and seven nights a week....so sunday evening works, so does saturday... I'm sore as hell today after about five hours of skiing... I should have bought those boots

Posted by Nerhael on Dec 11, 2008
Ahhh, it's weekday 'days', I got it mixed up. Bleh.

Let's go skiing on Sunday. The 21st at night will be awesome... I can feel it.

Posted by fanoom on Dec 12, 2008
Yeah, Sunday would work best for me as well. They should have south open that day too, since they opened the advance runs wayyyyy north today...

However, I will be mostly skiing with Pete on the bunny hill at central (which is totally fine by me). Hopefully within a few short trips we'll have him over to big baby for some real fun...then onto sunrise!!! then the WORLD!!

I think it would be halarious if I got ahold of one of those children's ski leashes and tied it onto Pete... What do you guys think?

Posted by mike on Dec 12, 2008
I think I need to bring the gold helmet and put that on Pete.

Posted by fanoom on Dec 12, 2008
well, if we're dressing him up, wanna grab a safety vest as well so we know who to avoid?

You should probably also cover his body in those G-Force impact indicator stickers. You know......for science.

I'm not sure I approve of these dress-up plans....

I think i have those leashes in my bag

I didn't realize blue mountain was open late on sunday .. but if it is . that is super awesome!!

Posted by fanoom on Dec 16, 2008
Yeah, night skiing starts this thursday for the rest of the skiiable year...
So if you two make your way up to blue for 4:30 (which is what time night skiing starts) Mike and I can meet you at central or north or south.... we can talk before that obviously to hash out plans... If you guys are up for it of course... It's cold as fuck here today so I'd imagine that they're pilling down the snow today to cover up the shitty icey stuff

Posted by Nerhael on Dec 16, 2008
We're game. I just have to buy clothing of some sort before then. But am taking tomorrow off, so might try to do it then.

Posted by fanoom on Dec 17, 2008
thermal underware and snow pants.... I swear to god if you show up wearing jeans under your snow pants you will regret it. And good socks, get good ones that go up nice and high and will stay up... God damn socks I wore the other day must have been worn out, rubbed my shins raw and kept falling down... Like I told you before, you may want something with vents in 'em to try and keep yourself cool.

Posted by Nerhael on Dec 17, 2008
Shit...I forgot underwear.

I got a jacket and pants though.....bleh.

Posted by crux on Dec 17, 2008
I've never been skiing before, but I have to assume that skiing commando style is not in your best interest.

Posted by fanoom on Dec 18, 2008
Good news...

There's supposed to be 10+ cm of accumilation tomorrow, and another 10+ on sunday, so lots of powder to fall into!

One news source said that we could see up to 50cm of accumilation by monday in certain areas (that would be Port Elgin mostly along hwy 21).

Oh let it snow let it snow let it snow...

Posted by Nerhael on Dec 18, 2008
Long as the driving doesn't get too crazy.

Any idea how long I should assume it'll take me to get up there?

Posted by fanoom on Dec 18, 2008
How long does it take to get from your place to the 400? I assume 20 mins?
400 north to barrie? 30-40?
barrie to collingwood? another 30-40?

Google maps says 1 hr 52 minutes....

ummm directions off of bluemountain.ca says 1.5, not sure where that's from...
http://www.bluemountain.ca/directions/400_and_401.htm

hopefully that helps? There's more directions available
http://bluemountain.ca/winter_directions.htm

Finding the proper base lodge will be the hardest part, I'm not sure if there's any signage coming from the east... And looking at the directions they don't state if you're at north, central or south....I would assume you're coming in on south lodge... when you get close we can always meet you somewhere on the road and guide you in....

Posted by fanoom on Dec 19, 2008
The roads are total shit today, if it's anything like this on sunday, definately don't bother coming up to go skiing, it wouldn't be worth the headache.

There's already a winter storm warning issued for Sunday, tomorrow is supposed to be our normal weather day, and then sunday morning is supposed to be like today. Hopefully with a fluffier snow, this stuff is giong to keep my back shoveling
