After thinking about it, maybe there was only 8 rooms left that were able to be booked back to back. In other words staying in the same room both nights.
I blocked rooms specifically for SnoFari. They are blocked for Thursday through Saturday nights. You get a little better rate on the room. There could very easily be 23-24 rooms left, that are not booked yet. However they are not SnoFari rates. I hope what I am typing makes sense.

Anyways, I would make sure that they put you in block of rooms for SnoFari when you make your reservations!

"Kixx007" Do you mean Fri and Sat ? Or are you just talking about back to back rooms , just wanted to make sure you typed the right days in because what about Saturday ?? I made my reservations a month ago , and I did mention I was with the Snofari group , Do you know what the rates are for the snofari gtoup ? Mine seemed a little bit higher than last year , like 25 dollars a night higher ? Maybe because I said I was bringing my nephew (so I said one adult and one kid she might have put me down by the pool ?? Just wondering !!

My mistake. I did mean Thursday-Saturday. I am not sure what the rates are on the rooms. I can tell you that if you get a pool side room, on the first floor, you will pay more than you will for a poolside room on the second floor. You will also pay mre for a poolside room, not matter first or second floor than you will for a non poolside room. Also, depending on bed set up, the cost will be different. Best advice is, call the hotel, and check to see what rate you are paying, and be sure they have you set up in one of the rooms blocked for SnoFari.

Yep... Friday night only though. I got the wife to let me splurge a bit even with the baby on the way

It helped I don't have to do major work to the flatty before going this year.

Hey, quick question:

How strict are the requirements? Like spare tire, no leaks, etc?

Thanx.

Most of it is common sense. You are already filling out a tech sheet. If you tell me you don't have leaks, I'm not going to question you. However, as we're getting lined up to go out and I see a puddle under your rig, I have a big problem. A drip? NO............. common sense.

Spare tires have been a big discussion item over the years. It's kind of boiled down to the trail leader's choice. If he plans on a run way out where a flat would be a big problem, he may require it. If he feels your group is covered with enough spares and will be close to a road, no problem. To me, with beadlocks being more common, I see tires being no more of a problem than spare u-joints.

Where all trail leaders stand united is QUALITY FRAME MOUNTED TOW POINTS, FRONT AND REAR! No tow points and you don't go on my run.......... PERIOD. I've seen too much damage and know too many people who have DIED because of unsafe recovery practices.

DISCLAIMER; I am not a trail leader or organizer this year so my opinions don't carry any weight.

They do, because this is one of those times where your opinion IS useful, and true.

Yes listen to whiterhino, he has been a trail guide for every single SnoFari.

(except this year)

What is the plan for Thursday? I have not received any plan of action but just noticed you mentioned Thursday as part of the block of reservations. I plan to head up Friday morning.

Ah well, looks like I'll just plant myself at the CLB and hang with Scoob by myself then.
