Howdy!

I joined pugski last year, and I think that it's about time that I introduced myself. I live in central California, and most of the time I go skiing in Mammoth and Snow Valley, but I like to take trips to Utah and if I find myself traveling to the East Coast during season I try to find a few hours where I can hit the slopes too. I consider myself a pretty average skier, but I'm always trying to improve and push myself a little bit more.

I'm happy to be here and to read about all your adventures and learn from your experience!

Welcome to the board @Fofo! CentCal to Snow Valley? That is an unusual journey! How will IKON affect your destinations going forward?

Welcome!!! I lived in southern California for 15 years and consider it my home. I'm back in the northeast and mainly ski southern Vermont. Glad you are here :)
Thank you @surfsnowgirl!

Thank you @Mothertucker! Yeah, I know, it sounds strange, but my significant other lives in SoCal, and we split the time here and there (which means that I end up spending most of the time down there ;). The Ikon base pass sounds interesting! We have been talking about this. The blackout dates would not affect us, and I go to Salt Lake City for work every now and then so having access to Deer Valley, for example, sounds really good. Are you getting the Ikon pass?

Thank you @moreoutdoorYuri! You live in a beautiful area, I really enjoy driving to SoCal along 101, much nicer drive than down 5. About Mammoth's long season, yeah! It was fun skiing there in July last year, in a t-shirt :D.

I will probably end up with the full IKON for next season, even though most of my days are at BB and Mammoth and I don't travel to other areas much anymore.
