Most Interesting Man In The World

According to the website, it's a 9:45 start. I think my group other years after day 1 sometimes got going about 9:30. You can always get at least 1 run in before class... sometimes 2 or more if you hustle.So ski week classes are 2 hours each day from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Have I got it right? So can we plan on lunch and then heading out in groups (depending on what people want to ski) for the afternoons?
You don't have to be faster than the bear, you just have to be faster than your friend...A buffer friend is someone you involve in a group outing where you are concerned about keeping up - a friend whom you know to be slower than you are. No one likes being the very last.
I made the mistake of introducing @KingGrump to the concept. I've had him turn to me at the end of a run and say "Mike, today you are the buffer friend."A buffer friend is someone you involve in a group outing where you are concerned about keeping up - a friend whom you know to be slower than you are. No one likes being the very last.
No worries, you won't be the slowest at the gathering. I have skied with you at Mammoth. Don't tell the guys though.I don't mind being last. I'm usually last because- since I am slower - I drop in last to avoid cutting off anyone's line.
I usually wear my beacon, that should make it easier. Sign me up!@A Grump will be leading the lambs to the slaughter with his suicide group*. Of course there will be several groups of skiers too smart to be involved with us.
* No Worries. He carries plenty of those little flags to mark the body in order to make things easier for patrol at end of the day sweeps.
