    count me in ...

    probably won't ski, but would be up for staring out the window with a frosty beverage in hand, dreaming of climbing Mighty Mount NoSnowba someday

    our 2007 attempt fell short when we ran out of oxygen bottles at High Camp

    we've been training for a 2010 attempt by acclimating at Greeley Ponds

    I'm in!

    I have been turned down from the climb also and am looking forward to building enough endurance for another attempt at the summit!

    Looking forward to seeing folks!!!

    There's a good possibility that I'll join you guys for this event. Drinking and skiing...a hard combo to beat.

    I was hoping I could make this event, but it looks like I'll be spending some time that evening on a frozen indoor pond with blades on my feet and a stick in my hand.

    Nashoba

    Anyone else ski there when all they had was 3 rope tows, an outhouse, and a small warming hut with a gravel floor?

    I used to think that hill was big and steep!

    Looking out the window with a beer in hand sounds like a great way to enjoy the place.

    What time are you getting together?

    They had more rope tows when I started, but I remember when the t-bar showed up. We thought it made Nashoba a resort.

    I was friends with the owner's daughter growing up, so we knew the place well.

    Whenever you show up is fine.
    I'll probably get there around 5:30 - 6.

    I remember the T-bar at Wachusett. Nobody told me you were'nt supposed to sit on it!

    Dave, you knew Pam ?

    We went to school together up until the time she headed out to whatever ski academy she ended up at. I think she left public school in the 9th grade.

    I'm certainly going to try to drag you and said houseguest out there!

    LRiz...I am expecting to see you there!!!

    I'll be there early also, will be coming from Logan after dropping my Boss off at Airport!

    There will be a ski race group there, but as long as everyone orders any food that they want by 8:30 it will be fine. When the race crew comes in the kitchen gets really backed up....(daughter will be in kitchen cooking), just a heads up...
