Thanks for the update, @Tricia 2 years in a row makes sense as an approach, given the unknowns involved. As much as I love Utah I've never been to Aspen so personally I want that to be the 21/22 location.We are nailing down some plans behind the scenes. Look for an announcement soon.
One thing we are talking about having Aspen 2 years in a row because this year's gathering is likely to be lean on attendance and we still don't know if it will go off without a hitch.
Had a conversation with someone at Snowmass today.
The thing is, we don't want to encourage a huge gathering this season unless things change a lot. While we're not responsible for the decisions that all of the members make, we also don't want to encourage poor practices.
How flim flammy does that sound?
Here is the link for the last time we were at Aspen
That is a little, just a little, better.
I booked a private cat for three days with Silverton Powdercats for $2500 / day. We are limiting to 6 guests. The cat can take 13, so with 6 we are cutting capacity in half.I thought about that but Steamboat PowderCats, where I am going this winter, wants $7200 for a day with a max of 6 people. At $3k/day I think we would be all over it.
So much is unknown at this time. At least in the red level counties in CO, which is to say most all of the counties with numbers of ski hills, it feels like the air has been let out of the room. No or very limited food service. Facilities understaffed. I'm still skiing, but it just feels different. While I am not "sitting this one out", expectations are very different.Not seeing a post in this thread for over a week is bumming me out making me think it is not going to happen.. I'm still planning on going although I haven't booked anything yet.
Yesterday the RDU airport was a total ghost town when I dropped my son off at 2PM. He said was there wasn't even a line at security. DFW was a little busier when he hopped through there at 6PM central. Today is probably pretty packed though..Hopefully you're not flying around any holidays.
