Ski/Snowboard event pre-planning. Thoughts?

Hey everyone.

As some of you may know, I work part-time sales at Best Western in Big Bear. I see the Harley Davidson and Mercedes-Benz meets happening here once every one or two months, and I figured I'd start planning out something for the BMW crowd.

I've been pitching this idea to the events planner at the hotel and the hotel owners and I got approval on the initial plan. Since the plan is still in it's infant stages, I can't offer any solid details yet. I'm simply putting this online to judge potential interest, and see what days and times work best for people with a plan like this.

So, I've been planning to give people who want to go skiing or snowboarding a package deal. We'd meet up in the Best Western parking lot in the morning, and I'd get a section of it cordoned off for E90/M3post members, for your parking. (Feel free to bring your 4wd cars, this is just a Bimmerpost get together.) We'd then go right across the street for ski/snowboard rentals, and then take the shuttle bus that also runs right across the street up to the ski resort. It's very close.

After having fun in the snow, we'd take the shuttle bus back down, and eat dinner in the conference room. I will be securing the buffet/rotisserie for this. If anyone would like to relax in the hotel's hot tub after a day of skiing/snowboarding, that would also be open and made available for members, so bring your swimming trunks if you're interested in soaking in a warm tub after a cold ski/snowboard session.

I'd be planning out three package deals, one for people who have their own gear and just want cheaper lift tickets, one for people who need cheaper rental ski/snowboards and cheaper lift tickets, and one for people who have season lift tickets, and just want to take advantage of the food and hot tub.

The day that this event will take place, or even how many times it will take place (I'm thinking realistically once this winter though.) is still up in the air. I just wanted to post up my initial ideas, and see what month/days/times people would be interested in. I know that nearly all of the members on the board work, and I just wanted to see what day would be best to get a whole lot of people in, so that a lot of people could have fun and unwind from daily life for a day.

Let me know what you guys think. My flame suit is prepped and ready...

Damn sounds like fun! I've been prepping my evo just to go! However, I probably won't need lift tickets or rental so how about for the meal?

Just for you Jason, I can do that.

Just messing. I can do just the meal deal for people who have season lift tickets, for sure.

Nice! If thats the case, we definitely have alot more people that will go! Also, what about hotel room discounts? Sometimes I REALLY don't want to drive down after snowboarding.

I haven't asked about that yet, but I bet you that I could get something for M3post/E90post members. Ideally, you'd want to set a reservation beforehand though, since it gets really busy in the winter, yano?

Start commenting about what days you guys would think is awesome. Hell, even comment "this sucks" if you really think so.


Or comment "this rocks" to motivate me.

We talked about this, remember Leon? I'm very well-acquainted with the owner of the establishment.

Cool. Can you guys show interest and also let me know what kind of days you're interested in? I don't want to set an arbitrary date and leave like 99% of SoCal bimmerpost out, yanno?
