Pow, there is no specific sign up for the ECES, loding at the above 2 accomodations have been pre-negociated for our ECES event. So yes you can call them today to make loding reservations.

Matt regarding tickets, my guess is that you can probably get a 7 or 8 day pass at the group rate. There is pricing for seniors and young kids as well. Jack and I still need to figure out how we will set up payment for tickets, that is still TBD.

Please keep in mind that the complete details are not finalized yet, we will have all the necessary details posted on our eces site.

They are building a new hotle and condos at the base of spruce, but I don't know if it's done yet. Stowe has a shuttle that runs through town every 15 minutes...really easy to get to the hill.

And there really aren't any bars/restaurants up by the base. everything you would want to do (non-sliding) is in the town.

Buggs, I think the hotel is suppose to be completed for the 2008 season, I'd give Stowe a call regarding that, but expect to pay quite a bit more for a room there.

The rates that I'm offering or the best deals you can get in Stowe and are only a few miles from the mountain. If you are looking for upscale accommodations there plenty to choose.

You asked for Stowe and you got it :biggthump . We have a great raffle banquet planed with an award winning catering staff hosting it at Stowe.

I wanted to point out some specific cut off dates and details around lodging accommodations.

1. Raffle Banquet tickets must be purchased by 2/8/08. There will be no last minute ticket purchases at the door. Tickets can be purchased here: Banquet Raffle Dinner. Banquet dinner is Thursday, March 6th

2. Lodging is on a 1st come 1st serve basis, there are NO rooms blocked off for this event, so get your lodging booked early. Please reference the "ECES event" when calling the Golden Eagle Resort and the Village Green Condos to ensure special pricing.

3. Please check the ECES forum for any updates and questions.

4. Post questions on this thread or the ECES forum and answers will be posted.

Stowe is very excited to be hosting this event for the first time.

Would there be a price reduction for a 12 year old as well as a 14 year old,also how is anyone entered in the raffle?

I'm sorry we cannot offer special pricing for kids for this event. With gratuity, 10% local tax and the site fee it has been difficult to keep the price down for this event. Offering another menu or pricing option for kids would raise the overall pricing per person.

The banquet dinner will be buffet style so you can pick and chose.

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at the door prior to banquet.

I'm up near Stowe today, and the snow is coming down hard as I type this:biggthump . I picked up a local newspaper and mid season lift tickets are listed at $84 a day :eek: . So our special ECES pricing for lift tickets is a great deal :biggthump .

I am still working with Stowe on trying to offer participants a way to pay for passes in advance via the ECES site. More to come

Is there any other fee other than the lift ticket, and lodge?

How much does it cost to demo alpine gear and stuff?

David,

There is no fee to attend the ECES event, costs are related to lodging, lift tickets and the raffle banquet. There might be a one time fee associated with demoing gear to compensate the sponsors for their shipping costs. But we are still working on lining up sponsors for the event and details around that.

We will post more details as schedules and plans solidify.

That's right you heard it here first, we are talking neon, asym's, one piece suits. You know all the stuff we thought was cool in the 80's, pull it out of storage.

If you don't own an asym or one piece suit, get on eBay….

Pull those asym boards out of storage and off the walls, the poor things haven't been on snow in years, let them shine for one more day.
