    Now that the new year is upon us why not embrace the innerchildren within ourselves and go sledding this month?

    My dad knows of a place that we went to when I was younger and I'll ask him about it. I was also thinking, (I know scary thought there) why not bring little children with us. I have 2 nieces that love Star Wars and they love the snow.

    when is a good weekend for everyone?

    The place i'm thinking of is in Park City and they usually always have snow whenever ours melts.

    Next weekend (the 13-14) is totally packed for me, and the next two weekends might be full as well. But don't plan around me. You pick a time/date and I'll try and make it. I've been needing to go sledding this year :D

    I guess it's kind of hard to decide on when to go sledding, what with the lack of snow right now. I'm having my eyes in Park City watch the area I want to go to and see how the snow is there.

    my contact (read little brother) doesn't answer the phone. I don't think it will be this weekend. I want to shoot for the 21 of this month if we can.

    I went skiing for the first time ever today. It was a blast. We should have a ski outing sometime. :)

    T'wasn't that much. It cost me $65 for rental, lesson, and lift pass. Decent deal I think. I got some snow down my pants, but I'm pretty sure they threw that in for free. :)

    I know they have snow pants, but it was my first time. I didn't wanna buy a ski wardrobe and end up not liking it. I did like it however, so I may have to suit up better next time. Jeans + awkward first-time-iness = snow in pants.

    ...and a very wet backside ;)

    My snowboard pants actually have an extra layer of warmth on the backside area just for that reason...sitting on it!

    I think that "extra layer" you're talking about is for "falling on it".

    :)

    **thump thump** Is this thing on?

    It's like a ghost town on this board.

    sorry....trooping with the 501st this weekend....I'm back now :)

    Well the extra layer actually is for sitting on...y'know...you can't just stand there on the hill on a snowboard...you slide somewhere.

    There are a couple of clubs not too far from here where you can dance for money.

    :)

    I don't know how long the snow is supposed to hang around though. Looks like it's supposed to melt soon. Hard to say, because weather forecasting never seems to be very accurate here.

    Of course, if it were money, it would have been long gone.

    It's supposed to snow this week so we'll have plenty of snow this weekend. If it's snowing pretty badly on Saturday I'll move the event to Sugarhouse Park. I hate driving Parley's and in the snow it's worse.

    Remember, bring you sleds, warm clothing and any children you see wandering around.

    We can go for hot chocolate and donuts afterwards as well.

    What times are good for everyone? I don't get off work until about noon or so on Saturdays so any time after that is good for me.

    We will be having the sledding activity in Sugarhouse park. It will start about 2:00 pm and go until all of us are frozen or we want hot chocolate and donuts. There is a Tasty's donut shop across the street from Sugarhouse so we can meet over there.

    For those who might not know where Sugarhouse park is. It's about 1350 E and 2100 S.

    Probably the first hill you go down to enter the park. It's the biggest, well not really but the easiest to go up and down and if we have little kids you don't want to tire them out too much. Wait a minute, you might want to.

    Yes it is this Saturday and remember we will be having donuts and hotchocolate across the street afterwards.
