i want to get the ball rolling (snowball effect :D) for a ski/snowboard trip this winter. if it works out, maybe we can do it again this winter.

i've only been to one place to ski in the poconos, Camelback (http://www.skicamelback.com/). it was pretty nice, so i'd suggest that for the location. how does that sound?

as for the date, i've made a list dates that might be good. in December: 20, 21, 27, and 28. some other days around christmas may be ok too, but that depends on if people don't have family gatherings or work on the weekdays (Dec 22, 23, 26, 29, and 30). in January: 3, 4, 10, and 11 (maybe 2nd also). i figure that most people should be available for many of those days.

tell me what you think. particularly the location.

if you do not know how to ski or snowboard, i'm sure that wherever we go will have lessons. from my experience, i think first time skiers have a better time. snowboarding is hard to pick up the first time unless you're as agile as a monkey ninja like i am :D
