$495 This includes almost EVERYTHING... gas for your driver, lodging for 3 nights (Sat, Sun, and Mon; cabin-style rooms with full kitchens, fireplace and access to the jacuzzi), 3 lift tickets (Sun, Mon and Tue), and a NorCal Snowboarders Shirt/Tank. Your only added expenses will be your meals and any additional entertainment you wish to partake in (bars, restaurants, etc.)

$445 The only difference for this option is if you plan to attended a Teton Gravity movie (which comes with a complimentary Sunday-Friday day lift tick which you can use), or choose to only ride 2 days. So you will only need 2-day lift ticket (Sat & Sun) which brings the cost lower to $445. Everything from above (gas, lodging, etc) stays the same.

4th Annual Mt Bachelor Trip

CARPOOL LINK

4th Annual NorCal Bachelor Trip

Its this time of the year again - NorCal Snowboarders are getting ready for another epic trip to Mt. Bachelor in Oregon!

Here are all the basic details:

This will be a 4 day trip, leaving Thursday, February 26th, arriving in Bend, Oregon Thursday evening. We will be riding Friday, Saturday, Sunday, returning to back to NorCal on Sunday night.

Total cost for this trip is as follows: 

$430 This includes almost EVERYTHING... gas for your driver, lodging for 3 nights (Thur, Fri, and Sat; cabin-style rooms with full kitchens, fireplace and access to the jacuzzi), 3 lift tickets (Friday Saturday and Sunday), Saturday private Tubing party and Sunday Lasagna lunch. Your only added expenses will be a few meals and any additional entertainment you wish to partake in (bars, restaurants, etc.)

$387 The only difference for this option is if you attended a Teton Gravity "Higher" movie back in September. The movie ticket comes with complimentary Sunday-Friday day lift tick which you can use for Friday. So you will only need 2-day lift ticket (Sat & Sun) which brings the cost lower to $385. Everything from above (gas, lodging, tubing party, lunch) stays the same. 

 

If you're still interested, read on!

 

CARPOOL:

We'll be carpooling up to Bend Oregon, which is about a 8 hour drive. If you are willing to drive, please state in your RSVP how many you can take COMFORTABLY with gear. The carpool fee is $120 to cover your round trip.(Drivers cost for the trip will be $120 lower since they are not paying a carpool fee)

Please be aware that we will be leaving Oregon on Sunday afternoon after a day of boarding/skiing, so those who don't feel they can handle the 8 hour drive should not volunteer.

 

LODGING:

We'll be staying at Mount Bachelor Village Resort which put us up the last 3 years. It's a great resort offering Ski House lofts with full kitchens, Fireplace, Washer & Dryer, and just a short drive to both Downtown Bend, as well as to the mountain. Each Ski House sleeps 4-8 people. Should you wish to have your own room (cost will be additional), let me know and I can make the arrangements. 

 

HOW TO JOIN:

There are small number of open spaces for this trip, so if you want in, you MUST PUT IN YOUR DEPOSIT. Simply RSVPing on MeetupDOES NOT guarantee you a spot!

to Mar 2

3rd Annual Mt Bachelor Trip

3rd Annual NorCal Bachelor Trip

Where's all the snow falling... Up North!! For those of you that ran up to Bachelor with us the last 2 seasons, you know what an epic trip this is. This year will be no less amazing!

Here are all the basic details:

This will be a 3 day trip, leaving Friday, February 28th, arriving in Bend, Oregon Friday evening. We'll then ride the fluffy white stuffboth Saturday AND Sunday (As of 12/6: 2 feet of fresh powder in the last week with 8" in the last 24hrs!), returning to NorCal on Sunday night (option to stay through Monday).

Total cost for this trip is still TBD, but will be around $320. This includes almost EVERYTHING... gas for your driver, lodging for both Friday and Saturday (cabin-style rooms with full kitchens, fireplace and access to the jacuzzi), 2 lift tickets (Saturday and Sunday), Sunday Lasagna lunch and a few other VIP surprises I'm in the process of working out. Your only added expenses will be a few meals and any additional entertainment you wish to partake in (bars, restaurants, etc.).

 

If you're still interested, read on!

 

CARPOOL:

We'll be carpooling up to Bend Oregon, which is about a 7-8 hour drive. If you are willing to drive, please state in RSVP how many you can take COMFORTABLY with gear. Those willing to drive will of course receive gas $$ to cover the entire trip, so their overall cost will be a bit lower.

Please be aware that we will possibly be leaving Oregon on Sunday evening after a full day of boarding, so those who don't feel they can handle the 8 hour drive should not volunteer.

We'll meet on Friday, February 28th at 9:00am in Sacramento, with an estimated arrival time in Bend, Or. around 5PM.

 

LODGING:

We'll be staying at Mount Bachelor Village Resort which put us up the last 2 years. It's a great resort offering Ski House lofts with full kitchens, Fireplace, Washer & Dryer, and just a short drive to both Downtown Bend, as well as to the mountain. Each Ski House sleeps 4-6 people (each person with their own bed). Should you wish to have your own room (cost will be additional), let me know and I can make the arrangements.

 

RESERVATION:

There are small number of open spaces for this trip, so if you want in, you MUST PUT IN YOUR DEPOSIT. Simply RSVPing on Meetup DOES NOT guarantee you a spot!

 

If you're interested in this trip, you'll need to place your first deposit of $120 before Friday, January 10th. Click on the link below to place your deposit.  



The next $120 installment will be due by Friday, January 31st and the remaining balance (TBD... Should be between $80 and $100) will be due by Monday February 24th. Once you place your deposit, it isNON-REFUNDABLE as I need to pre-purchase the lift tickets and lodging, so please be sure you can make the trip before putting in your initial deposit!

Yosemite Backpacking trip

to Sep 30

Yosemite Backpacking trip

Yosemite Backpacking Trip
 

Before you read any further, understand this will be an extremely difficult hike... backpacking experience is a MUST.

We will be backpacking from Sunrise Lakes Trail head, hitting Clouds Rest, hiking from there to Half Dome and camping on top, then back down to the valley. You will need to have backpacking experience as you will be camping 2 nights and carrying ALL your gear (30-40 lbs) the entire time. This is a small trip (only open to about 10 people) so please don't RSVP unless you are 110% sure you have all the equipment needed (40 lb. pack, backpacking tent/hammock, 15 degree sleeping bag, etc.) and can keep up with other experienced hikers. Since we are camping 2 nights, we all need to stay together throughout the entire trip.

THE PLAN

DAY ONE (Friday): We will leave Sacramento and get to Yosemite by 6 - 7pm. It's a full moon weekend, so we will start our adventure at the Sunrise Lakes Trail and hike in under the full moon a few miles to the base of Clouds rest. We should drop camp around 11pm.(Distance: 4-5 miles)

DAY TWO (Saturday): We'll pack up and hike to the top of Clouds Rest, then make our way over to Half dome by 5pm. Once the Rangers are gone (5-6pm) we'll hike to the top of Half Dome (no rangers, no permits needed!) where we'll enjoy an amazing sunset and a great evening under the full moon. (Distance: 10+ miles)

DAY THREE (Sunday): We'll wake up nice and early and watch sunrise over the entire Yosemite valley from the top of Half Dome! We'll then pack up and make out way back down to the valley via Mist Trail, take the bus back to Sunrise Lakes Trail head and head home. (Distance: 7-8 miles)

Each person will need a wilderness permit for Sunrise Lakes Trail ($5) and all their own backpacking equipment (if you need to ask what to bring, you're probably not experienced enough to go!). Carpool cost is TBD.
