Neil,

Thanks for spearheading this. My buddy J & I may be interested in a Culebra ski depending on when the final date is nailed down.

Wow, this is starting to look like quite a party. Let me add my name to the list, I am very interested in skiing Culebra and therefore would be up for a March or April trip. Glad to help with planning, logistics, etc.

Perhaps the Ranch would be agreeable to a February and April date. This would allow those of us who care about winter ascents to climb in February, and those who want to ski to go in April. They might prefer this schedule to dates 3-4 weeks apart. Just a thought.

Agreed, I Man. Certainly there seems to be enough interest for 2 separate dates.

Agreed I Man, a good idea and definitely worth a shot. A winter group and a ski group would make everyone happy. Sounds like Anna sent an email (or is sending an email) to the ranch today. Certainly not telling anyone how to run their affairs, but perhaps we should defer to Anna's work with the ranch for now so Cielo Vista is not getting slammed with emails. Hopefully her diplomacy will be successful...no pressure! :lol: Anna, thank you for sending the email and working with the ranch. Cielo Vista has been very generous providing one winter date -- an added spring date would be spectacular, but I would remain eternally thankful for whatever we get. If you care to hand those duties off, I would be happy to help, as I'm sure others would be. Otherwise, we'll look forward to hearing from you.

Indeed. Killing 2 birds with one ski trip ;) Depends on the snow conditions, of course...
