The Latest from TPR ( Julia)

Hi Ray,

Robbie Warner had wanted to reserve space for 7 more people, and I don't
think we will have room, unless guys sleep together. (I've been kidding
about that all along too!)Really, we need to cut it off at about 26 total,
and we are a little over that, but we will work it out.
I spoke with Ron, and we will probably strip the beds down to a bottom sheet
for that last week, we are full-full-full, and it'll help with laundry (1
machine) and closing. So, that means the bunkhouse rate will apply to the
whole group, and everyone will need to bring a bag to sleep in. (Which is on
the essential gear list anyway.)


We do not have a projector, we do have about a 19", maybe 21", TV with a
built in DVD and VCR. It will be in hiding somewhere.
We really need to limit the kinds of luggage we bring up, so I'm not sure
about brining a projector, it all depends on conditions and how well you can
pack it.
(ie: Will it survive a trip down Lee Vining Canyon if the toboggan and/or
it's contents gets blown over the edge? This has happened.)

Your group is looking like 23 total, if we can fit in Robbie's group, and
the group from Colorado wants to add 4 more, I'm not sure how many they have
yet, sounds like 8-9. We will do our best to make it all work.
Besides, I know these snowboard guys, half of them are the walking wounded
before the end of the season!

Hopefully, I'll have been on a Splitboard before you guys come up. I'm not
much of a snowboarder, but with my knees, I'm thinking it is a better way
for me to go in the backcountry. I've been skiing on AT gear for wow, 20
years now! Started on Ramers, I worked for Paul for 5 years, and then went
to the Dynafit TLT, which I just love!
I'm 5' 8" and ski anywhere from a 170-190 ski. No lightweight girly here!

Thanks for everything,
Julia

Im sure its pretty sucking right now. But all of the steep lines are ice and all we need is some snow on top of those. The way it looks...if it dumps between now and then...trees. If it doesnt dump but does snow then the steeper lines should be doable.


I Hope

Im not too nervous . Even if its dry in January. Lets face it ..March is usually the big month down here . We will see. I am prying for "fantastic Febuary" or a "march miracle" and maybe even an "awesome april"

What if a few goons wanted to skin in, set up camp at an appropriate distance (1/2 mile away from the lodge?) and hook up with the crew for the riding? How far would the skin in be, and how much vert from the trailhead to camp? Could I leave a vehicle parked at the trailhead for a few days?

Any ideas? :idea:

I'm a glutton for punsihment, and my megalight gets lonely in the spring :wink:

P420 has done it so he knows the distances, but I think we're all parking at the closure gate for highway 120. TPR is carrying our gear up in their truck, but we're skinning in. If we could share your gear out or get TPR to carry it ($) then it would be a piece o' cake. But then again if you like punishment.. At any rate, I highly recommend you do it & bring PJ too.

Piece of cake, and bring your Mojo friend too. I betcha you could give TPR a few duckets and eat/party thier as well. If they won't cart your camp gear up I'll help you carry it. Get your arse out here!

Plenty of terrain, lets just hope there's snow. :cry: :cry:
