What is there to say that hasn't already been said?

TL;DR:
- The 2nd HBO Mountain Bash will be happening again
- It's a get-together of HBO and DBOers to chill in a cabin and do winter-y things
- It was a (row)boatload of fun last year and you should be sad you didn't go
- January 17-20 (MLK weekend), 2014
- Around Park City, UT (fly into Salt Lake City Airport)
- If you're interested, email schoolyd@teamschoolyd.org (no commitment required yet)

The HBO Mountain Bash is a gathering of attractive and successful HBOers (now including DBOers too!) in a snowy locale for food, fun, video games, winter sports, and Shrek 2. We have only done this once before... and it was badass.

2013 write-ups: Bryan Newman, Tex, Avateur/Znite

Here's a brief recap of only a fraction of the activities from last year:
- snowboarding/skiing
- Shrek 2
- stealth recording of the upcoming TV series Hangin' with KP
- snow fort building
- sledding
- dogsitting
- snowmob- er, chess
- Taco Time
- beer
- steak
- enchiladas
- Secret Santa
- Halo
- Sonic Racing
- hot tubbing
- short cutting
- a good, solid 30 minutes of laughing at people who didn't go

THE CABIN

This is the cabin we're aiming for.

Total cabin cost for 3 nights: $2753 (includes cleaning and taxes)
If 15 people go: $184 per person ($61/night)

Looks pretty sweet, huh? You could get real comfy in there. Also check out that moose.

Caveat: This thing can get expensive. You should be ready to spend $225-ish for your share of the cabin, plus a few bucks for food and skiing/boarding equipment (if you choose to hit the slopes -- most people stayed behind last time).

I will be living in the Seattle area, and will be driving down to Salt Lake for the bash. If you're on the way and can't/don't want to buy a plane ticket, you might have a considerably cheaper ground-based option in me. Let me know if that's the case.

If you are interested in attending, email me at schoolyd@teamschoolyd.org. I understand that few people can commit right now, but if you'd like to be a part of the discussion, hit me up. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, except for the people who went last time. For them it's a twice in a lifetime opportunity. Unless there's one next year and they're planning on going to that also. In which case they're a straight up baller and command your respect.

If you're interested in going: There will be one afternoon/evening when a collection of brave bombers go out to the slopes for skiing/snowboarding. Let me know whether you're planning on going to the slopes (Team Sanic) or staying in the cabin (Team Comfy). Choose wisely; your allegiance will determine which hoodie you get.

Does which team you're on determine how comfy your hoodie is?

Team Comfy, but Team Sanic will be responsible for getting me to and from the airport, and in and out of the house, which will be a winter sport in itself.
