Title: Nov.11 Skiing

There's a 3-day weekend coming up on Nov.11.  I doubt anyone is free Thanksgiving with family and all, so we should go on Veteran's Day instead (unless you do something special that day ).

It'll be at Boreal (www.borealski.com) as usual.  Your first time will cost $70 but includes rentals and lessons as well.  Then the 2nd and 3rd time you go will only cost $30 for the same deal (and more advanced lessons).

We'll leave early at 7am and head home about 5pm; bring food if you don't want to buy.  If you or your parent can drive, please ask.  It's a regular highway with multiple lanes - no narrow roads, not too far into the winter so you shouldn't need chains.

Time and Place:
6am = Be ready to be picked up.  Leave Berkeley.
8am = Arrive in Sacramento, leave for Boreal.
10am = Arrive at Boreal.
5pm = Leave Boreal to head home.
6pm = Dinner in Sacramento.
7pm = Leave Sacramento for Berkeley.
9pm = Back in Berkeley.

Drivers:

Weather to check just incase:

Hey I checked the road conditions as of Saturday night, and you WILL need snow chains to get to Boreal. Also just asked my friend if he's interested, will let you know when he responds. Not sure if he has snow chains though.
