About the trip; The triphad a few transportation challenges. On the way to Big Sky, there was notenough room on the plane for all the luggage. Seems skiers carry a lotof luggage. Many members didn'treceive their gear until the following day while some didn't get it until 3 dayslater.
Things were worse on the way back. Theplane couldn't reach the gate because planes were there. Bythe time the plane got to the gate, the pilots time limit was over andcanceled the flight. Clubs members were put up in hotels overnight and gotback on Sunday. Some early and some not until late Sunday night.
But the skiing wasgreat. Big Sky received fresh snow just a few days before the club arrivedgiving wonderful conditions. The biggest comments were NO lift lines, GREATscenery, and GOOD food! Jim Conway won a gold medal andLynn Creegan won a silver medal in the CMSC club challenge. Congrats to both.Jim had the fastest time of the 150+ racers and carried on the tradition ofhaving a Powder Dog having the fastest time 3 years in a row.
And then there was the BRAmaster whichyou need to ask Dan about.
