My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.
Ah naw, hell naw, I done up and done it. Snowshoe is booked! There will be 5 of us (me, Stef, Brad, TP, Brad's co-worker), from January 19 (Thursday) - 23 (Monday).
Now for the monies:
We have a 2-bedroom suite at the Mountian Lodge, and it comes with 5-days of lift tickets for 4 people. It costs $1636.72. Then we'll need to add in lift tickets for the fifth person. Since I'm not sure whether or not we'll actually ski on the day we get there or leave, I only pre-purchased lift tickets for the fifth person for 3 days. If we end up wanting to ski more, we'll all have to pitch in to buy his ticket. No big whoop. Anyway, the 3-day ticket runs $171.00. Next, we'll all need rentals. If we pre-purchase them before November 1, they will be $26/day. If we buy them when we get there, they will be $30. So, assuming that we all ski for 4 days, that's going to run a total of $520.00. So, it's kinda broken down in a funny way. After taxes and whatnot, I have a $966.20 fee already on my card which is holding the room and lift tickets(5 days for 4 of us, 3 for the other). $811.43 more will be due when we get there. Add to that the $520 for rentals and another day's lift ticket for that 5th person ($42) and we are looking at a grand total of $2339.63, or about $468 each. I'm sure the end amount will vary slightly, but I trust everyone will hold up their end and not eff me over on this one.
Lastly, we need to decide what our arrival/departure schedule should be. Check-in is 5pm (or when the room is ready) and check-out is 11pm. We can ski the day we get there or the day we leave, or both. What do you all think?
Color me STOKED!

I'm all for not skiing the days of arrival and departure. I think 3 days of skiing will be plenty good for me. Maybe I'll be the odd ski-lift ticket guy.
Bigtime stoked asswheel. Gonna go axe fro my days off right NOW!
