    The 2017 vote / potluck party will be at my condo tomorrow night, Saturday, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. The vote will be at 7:30.
    Address will be shared via private message - spread it, but NOT on the open internet. I am near the Snowmass base village. There is no parking at the condo -- the bus stop in the garage is nearby, or you can park in that garage for free if you enter after 5 pm.

    Even if you can't bring anything for pot luck, come anyway. I'll prime the pump with a few pizzas or something.

    And think about nomination proposals... remember, a good story, a seasonal timeframe, and a gathermeister makes a good proposal.

    I love it that the ShotzSki was in tow at the after party party.

    I also love it that we have such a great mix of women on this site and at the GTG's

    @Tricia - I suspect you mean @Rainbow Jenny was ripping it up on the Sambas. Although I WAS doing a pretty darn good job myself yesterday and today, it was at Nubs, not Aspen! (Had a couple of fun days, though. Skied with volklgirl and her DH for a while today.)

    Glad to see you've had great snow and weather, especially for the hike yesterday. I grabbed this image from the Highlands webcam at 11 am yesterday when it looked like you were probably starting to hike:

    Wish I was there. Have fun!

    I read this quote literally seconds after showing the picture with all the ladies to @Luvbug , and we commented on all the women at the Gathering.

    Took a break from up valley and skied at Sunlight. What a gem! Still found untracked 4 days after the last snow, great vertical and fun trees! Plus, the daily lift ticket is only $ IMG_20160207_113742726.jpg IMG_20160207_114811817_HDR.jpg IMG_20160207_114821104.jpg IMG_20160207_123625706.jpg IMG_20160207_123629902.jpg IMG_20160207_123638186.jpg IMG_20160207_141031225_HDR.jpg 65! @Chris Geib @James @SBrown

    Yep, consider going to Sunlight. It's got great terrain and hardly anyone there. Great small vibe. Roast a pig in the parking lot.
    Had a great time even substituting bratwurst for roast pig.

    Fun meeting up with Weems on his mountain at the Merry-Go-Round - here with Betsy, Chris, Kevin, James, Susan and Christy. Good on Weems leading us on a fun tour.
