Ooh, can you volunteer on snow somewhere? Something with SheJumps? Or do some backwoods training for the learning part?

DH is still waiting and hoping for a grant to come through to finance both semesters, but is shooting for a combo of JILA in Boulder and UNM in ABQ for the spring semester.

ohhhhh what are you guys doing for his sabbatical??

As of this coming December I’ll be eligible for a 5 week sabbatical. No idea when I’ll take it or what I want to do yet though.. You can do anything you’d like, but if you do some sort of learning or volunteer work for any part of it my company will also give 1k towards expenses.
You could volunteer with an Adaptive Ski Program at a mountain where you'd like to be for 5 weeks.

A little frustrated that I was out of the house yesterday when the pass sales were announced. I put it on my cc instead of waiting to get home and pull out a gift card to pay for my pass. But on the other hand, I am glad I bought it then. Less than 24 hours after sales were announced and the Steel pass is already sold out!

That's definitely a great idea to consider as well. I've wanted to do that in general, so this could afford an opportunity with more time to spend on snow.

Wachusett is having their slope clean up day a little earlier than usual. The past several years it has been late April, if I remember correctly. They also usually give a little more notice. It is this Saturday, May 21 from 9-1. They have also gone back to the usual early season ticket as a thank you for helping. I was hoping they would stick with the all season ticket that they gave out last year.

I'm on the fence about going. I always enjoy going and hiking up the hill while looking for trash, but it is going to be pretty warm on Saturday.

Is anyone planning on going?

Oof 95 degrees is a big no for me.. I’ll be in my air conditioning all weekend hiding. Lol

I had hoped to go (my brother would love an early season ticket), but with the last minute announcement, I can’t make it. Also agree tomorrows temps are a hard nope… I’ve hiked Wawa when it’s 85 but at least then you’re mostly in the woods!
