My vote is for January. New years is resort time with the lady :) Really anything that is not a major winter holiday is good with me.

Whatever dates you pick I hope I can make it. I really wish I could make it to Fairy Meadows as well, can't swing the time off.

I'll complain now. Early Jan is the only time that works for me unless it's held on a weekend. I go back to class the 10th of Jan. New Years would be sick timing actually.

I'm leaning towards the 22-23 weekend as I'm worried a bit about missing some of the event should weather prevent or delay the heli flight out of Fariy Meadows. Pretty bad form I think for an organizer to do that.

January 22-23, 2011 is still tentative, but I'm going to float it out there and see what people think. I plan on solidifying it soon as there's lots of other arrangements to get underway.

On another note, I'd appreciate feedback on these logos.
http://www.splitboarders.ca/index.php?itemid=5

I'd also greatly appreciate someone who has the design skills to create in a vector based format for easier reproduction. Someone capable of making an event poster (like this one for the Mt. Baker Festival: http://www.splitboardfestival.com/index ... 8&Itemid=8) would also be great.

As for the noob question, my experience with festivals is one (last year's Mt. Baker festival) and I don't anticipate a problem. There were many groups that headed out based on their levels and goals. Rogers is a huge place, ranging from super safe trees right out the back door of the hotel to you ride it, you name it, stuff that (should) even make Karkis pucker!

For those wanting to hire a (splitboard) guide, that's hopefully going to be an option available too.
