Forum Gathering in Mammoth??

Postby Snow Nymph » Tue Jan 31, 2006 12:17 am

If anyone is interested in meeting in Mammoth, pick a date.

I'm available in Feb except the weekend of the 11-12th.

The weekend of Feb 18 includes President’s Day and some extra crowds.
I’d vote for the weekend of Feb 25. For those wanting to save a few bucks on lodging, Davison Street Guest House is great. About $40 for the dorm, they also privet rooms that sleep 3 to 4 people.

Great idea! The later part of Feb or March would work best for me.

Free HST stickers for anyone who shows up. I'll take names and addresses and mail them out after the trip. :rockon:

Mammoth is a little far of a drive from the bay area for the amount of time I can get away :(

However, if anyone is interested in a west side gathering...maybe a winter camping trip, give me a holler.

Don't know...I'm pretty open. But I have been dying to head up to Pear Lake and Tableland area in SEKI. Glacier Point in Yos. would be cool too...

Probably would depend on the experience level of who would be going. Glacier Pt. Easy on the road, than 4 mile grunt to the Ostrander Hut. Pear and on up to Tablelands. Advanced with Avy training/trancievers/shovel etc. required.

I might be able to do a winter trip. I took the basic Avy training last year, and have the required gear.


Looks like thew weekend of the 25th might work for a few people! Lets plan on that weekend in Mammoth!

Talked it over with Mrs. Pup and we would also like to join the party on the weekend of the 25th.

Sierra Lady over at Mammoth Mountain forums says that the weekends of the 11/12th and 18/19th are looking awful full due to the holidays.

I for one usually prefer Mammoth when the screaming hoards are NOT in town.

Would really like to finally meet you and Snow Dude in person since I've been lurking your webshots albums for a couple of years.

Oh yeah - we've got avy beacons too - so maybe a fourm run through Hole-in-the-wall??????

Where do you normally meet - we usually hang out at the parking lot over by Chair 21 if we have our dog with us - otherwise it's the Mill Cafe parking lot.
Sometimes I have a great notion
