    Posted: Aug/10/2009 at 11:42am
UPDATE 3/2:
We have changed the weekend of the Tahoe event.  Please see the calendar below.  It is now the weekend of the 17th & 18th of April.
_____________________________________________________
We want to get out and ride with all of our community members this season so we are coming to a mountain near you. 

Bruizzapalooza was so much fun at Sugar Bowl here in Nor Cal, we want to take it on the road.  Check out last year's official Bruizapalooza thread  and Matt's 'thank you' thread for a peak at the shenanigans that went down.

We're thinking 5 stops, because it's Sierra Snowboards five year anniversary. 

Maybe we can go West Coast to East coast.  Nor Cal, North West, Colorado, and Stowe Vermont, and maybe July in New Zealand.

We want everyone to try and make it out to the Bruizzapalooza near you...


UPDATES: Steamboat Colorado offically planned and booked
We will be staying at the Steamboat Grand Hotel at the base of Steamboat for the weekend.  

Check out this product page to purchase your 'package' to ensure that you have the ultimate hookup for this event.

$199.95 For the two nights lodging (Fri & Sat) and two days (Sat & Sun) of riding (Jan. 22nd-24th)

$249.95 For the three nights lodging (Fri, Sat & Sun) and two days (Sat & Sun) of riding (Jan. 22nd-25th)

Both of the following packages include lodging (~$450+ value), lift tickets for two days ($190 value), 2011 demo, cocktail party and breakfast both Saturday and Sunday mornings as well as a custom designed t-shirt by Mr. Phil Wiles.
All GREEN DATES will be final!
**We had various events and holidays to try to work around and did our best to spread the events out a bit for to make it easier for people to plan time off from work.  We apologize if this doesn't completely mesh with everyone's schedules, but we did our best to work this much into a short time period.  We hope to see as many of you as possible at each stop.**



BRUIZZAPALOOZAJanuary 23-24
We will be staying at the Steamboat Grand Hotel at the base of Steamboat for the weekend.  

SHAKAPALOOZAFebruary 27 & 28: Stevens Pass, Washington
(nearest major airport: Seatac; nearest small airport: Wenatchee)

BETTYPALOOZA: March 27 & 28: Stowe, Vermont

SIERRAPALOOZA: April 17 & 18:  Sugar Bowl, California
(nearest major airport: Reno (or Sac if you want to go by Sierra's store); nearest small airport: Truckee)

All you Aussies & Kiwis, throw us some suggestions of when and where we should go in NZ!!

Jackson would be awesome - but Jackson isn't exactly close to many people. Pretty much everybody would have to travel a good distance for that.

Also - no SLC?

Depends on how much we get in Oct/Nov, but there's usually not a ton. 
 
Christmas week has usually been when the 1st major storm has been coming.  Before that most mountains aren't even open 100%.

EL NIÑO/SOUTHERN OSCILLATION (ENSO)
DIAGNOSTIC DISCUSSION
issued by
CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER/NCEP
6 August 2009
 

ENSO Alert System Status: El Niño Advisory

 
 

Spanish Version

 

Synopsis:  El Niño is expected to strengthen and last through the Northern Hemisphere Winter 2009-2010.

A weak El Niño was present during July 2009, as monthly sea surface temperatures (SST) departures ranged from +0.5oC to +1.5oC across the equatorial Pacific Ocean, with the largest anomalies in the eastern half of the basin (Fig. 1). Consistent with this warmth, all of the Niño-region SST indices were between +0.6oC to +1.0oC throughout the month (Fig. 2). Subsurface oceanic heat content (average temperatures in the upper 300m of the ocean, Fig. 3) anomalies continued to reflect a deep layer of anomalous warmth between the ocean surface and thermocline (Fig. 4). Also, convection was suppressed over Indonesia and enhanced across the western Pacific and near the International Date Line. In addition, developing El Niño’s often feature westerly wind bursts over the western equatorial Pacific, such as the one which occurred at the end of July (Fig. 5). These oceanic and atmospheric anomalies reflect El Niño.

A majority of the model forecasts for the Niño-3.4 SST index (Fig. 6) suggest El Niño will continue to strengthen. While there is disagreement on the eventual strength of El Niño, nearly all of the dynamical models predict a moderate-to-strong El Niño during the Northern Hemisphere Winter 2009-10. A strengthening El Niño during the next few months is also suggested by the recent westerly wind event in the western equatorial Pacific, which can lead to additional anomalous warmth across the central and east-central equatorial Pacific during the next two months. Therefore, current conditions and model forecasts favor the continued development of a weak-to-moderate strength El Niño into the Northern Hemisphere Fall 2009, with the likelihood of at least a moderate strength El Niño (3-month Niño-3.4 SST index of +1.0oC or greater) during the Northern Hemisphere Winter 2009-10.

Expected El Niño impacts during August-October 2009 include enhanced precipitation over the central and west-central Pacific Ocean and the continuation of drier than average conditions over Indonesia. Temperature and precipitation impacts over the United States are typically weak during the Northern Hemisphere Summer and early Fall, and generally strengthen during the late Fall and Winter. El Niño can help to suppress Atlantic hurricane activity by increasing the vertical wind shear over the Caribbean Sea and tropical Atlantic Ocean (see the Aug. 6th update of the NOAA Atlantic Seasonal Hurricane Outlook).

Last couple of years have seemed to be unusually light in the snow department until January. 
Even in slow snow years though, There's at least a handful of places open. Boreal opens early, but a lot of times isn't much. 
Northstar and Heavenly have the best snowmaking in Tahoe - and by December both normally have a good deal of terrain open. 

Sierra normally tries to get some stuff open - but honestly, they'd be better off if they didn't. I've had to hike through rock gardens on more then one occassion there.

For the rest - it all depends on how much snow we've had, and the directions the storms have come from.
If they drop down from the north - Places like Sugarbowl, Squaw, Alpine, Northstar are better. If they come straight from the west - Kirkwood gets nailed, and the resorts along the western ridge get a good deal. Places like Northstar, Rose, Heavenly, and Sierra tend to get a little less with those storms.

Colorado, NorCal and maybe New Zealand i would try to swing.  Jackson would be interesting for people to try to get to, I at least have a place to stay there and my cousin does PR for one of the bigger hotels there.

east coast pretty much has to be late season. 
Early season the snow is weak, and mid-season it's brutally cold (ice).
Late feb could work - but even late feb temps can still be a bit brutal. you have a 50-50 shot of it either being nice and warm (soft) - or freezing cold. That time of the year, freezing cold means solid ice.
March is a good time on the east coast, because the temps have started to come up enough that it breaks up that ice and gives you something to ride during the day. Think northstar on a warm sunny day - and that's what VT is like in march for the most part.


If I were picking out the times - I would do it like this:

JAN  : Colorado (26th - 28th, the days immediately leading up to SIA)
FEB  : Baker (mid-month - burried in snow)
MAR : Stowe (early/mid month - best time to be on the east coast)
APR  : Tahoe (early april - slushy end of season park fun)
JUL  : NZ

It's not a straight east->west or west->east sequence of dates - but I think it would line up the best likelyhood of either excellent conditions and/or cheap/easy travel for each location.

Agreed

Stowe will/would be fun - but it's going to be tricky.
Not really any major airports in the area.
Could fly into Burlington - but no direct flights. Not the easiest trip in the world.

Closest major airport is Boston - which is still a good 3.5 hrs by car...

It would be sweet for you guys to come out and ride the Jackson area. That is where I ride now. So much fun.
Grand Targhee got 530 inches of snow last year. Great place to ride.

I might be able to hit up the Nor Cal one if I am on break from school in Dec or spring skiing.

It sounds like a great idea and great times will be had, but maybe we might need to tone it down a little.  

The fun will come from having the most members of staff and community riding together. If we spread it out over 5 locations were only gonna get a few people at each one.  Instead of 5 halfway decent meet ups i say more like 2 big ones.  West coast to East coast.    That way everyone meets half way and we can still get a decent size group together.

Maybe Big 30 person Condo at squaw on weekend, and then the next off to Vermont for a tour of the Burton factory and some east coast riding.  

I dont want to sound like a nay sayer, but i think we should plan small and end big, not plan huge and be dissapointed? maybe?

The point is to get out to all parts of the country were the Sierra Community live and ride.  So we got to do five.  I also think it will give more people a chance to attend if there are more and closer to home.  I like to think and plan big, its more fun that way. 

You can't go wrong with Baker in the North West (I know Johan at Capita Union would give us the home town treatment, not to mention Mervin) Vail in Colorado is my choice (good timing around SIA Myke), the Burton factory tour and Stowe, 

Nor Cal back to Sugar Bowl and this time we take over the entire lodge or over to Squaw or Northstar?

Lets sort this out as a community and come up with a plan that gets everyone out riding together.

That means you Nu Nu

that sounds like a sick idea and i'm all about it granted i can get the time off for it.  stowe is damn good time despite the cold... low temperatures don't bother me a bit as long as i'm not shoveling or doing something weak.

I like how talk of Jackson won't go away.  
I know it's not going to happen, but the place is absolutely utterly ridiculous.... words can't describe...

The point is to get out to all parts of the country were the Sierra Community live and ride.  So we got to do five.  I also think it will give more people a chance to attend if there are more and closer to home.  I like to think and plan big, its more fun that way. 

You can't go wrong with Baker in the North West (I know Johan at Capita Union would give us the home town treatment, not to mention Mervin) Vail in Colorado is my choice (good timing around SIA Myke), the Burton factory tour and Stowe, 

Nor Cal back to Sugar Bowl and this time we take over the entire lodge or over to Squaw or Northstar?

Lets sort this out as a community and come up with a plan that gets everyone out riding together.

That means you Nu Nu



Squaw's almost a little too big and too much variety. I think the group would scatter a bit too much. Great terrain, great mountain, but too easy to get spread out all over the place.

I like northstar - but northstar just gets a bit too crowded for something like this. It's fun - and i think most people would have a good time - but I think people who don't ride there a lot would get really frustrated. 

I think sugarbowl is absolutely the perfect place for a meetup like this. Big enough and enough variety of terrain to keep it interesting for a group of people. Small enough we can still 'take it over'. The resort it's self just lends it's self to cozy community vibe as well.

I'm here for the gangbang....
