Any other takers? I have 3 houses that I am looking at. The closest one to the trails is more expensive, but there are 2 other options that are similar in price to prior years.
What is the difference in price? Closer to the trails is worth it in my opinion.

Where are the awesome technical XC trails? How does the area compare to what we're used to in vermont? Need more info so that we can get all jacked up about the trip!

I have requests out for 4 places (2 are houses, 1 is cabin with camping option and the other is a lodge style). The one I really wanted is on hold with another renter, but she will keep us in mind if they don't pay their deposit.
Another option to extend the festivities....we live about 2 hours south of Lake Placid and have some amazing trails, a pool and a large house with land. We could certainly host some monkeys for some riding here on either end of a Lake Placid weekend and that would extend the festivities while keeping the cost down.

I always want to extend the trip. The problem is that I can never find anyone else that wants to do it with me. Maybe this year will be different.

Place is booked.....sending deposit now. We have it Thursday - Sunday and then all are invited back to our place on Sunday to ride some technical and also some flowy trails (whatever the group wants). We have a pool and a hot tub and a large home that has beds for many and acres of land for those who would rather toss in their tent and stay until Monday, Tuesday, etc......

I've got 5 people who say that they are going to attend with me, but every year they drop like flies when the date approaches. They are all saying Thur-Sun is what they can do. I very much want to stay an extra day or two, so I'm going to bring my car and tell them they can find their own way home. You guys know Mark and Matt - they came last year. The others are Will, Raj and Bill.

Awesome! The house I rented has beds for 16 and we don't have that number yet, but there looks to be room for a cot etc as needed too. I have the house booked Thurs-Sun so you can just follow us home for some additional riding time on Monday :)

Anyone want to hit up Whiteface with me and the kid Saturday? If all goes as planned, we will only be shuttling the lower part of the mtn. Ended up NOT investing 1500 on a 24" FS for him, but he is getting his 1st MTB today! (used Hotrock that I plan to upgrade).

EDIT: I think we also plan to hit up the pump track in Wilmington after- bringing our BMX bikes as well.

LOL! The house should be quite close to the trails. The owner said they were at least. Cost should be about the same too (woohoo). This was one of the first ones that I looked at and it wasn't initially available because of an Iron Man (race not the dude) booking but they had the week wrong so we were able to get in :)

I am hoping the cost will be $100-125 range for food & lodging too! The link isn't working at school so I'll try to update it from home.

Seem pretty close to Flume Trails. Contact Deyv if you want some 411 on trails there. They have a few friends that live in Lake Placid.

I feel like I'm late to the party. Guess i don't log in much anymore.
I am a maybe. Got to get it past the wife since i will already be up there the following weekend volunteering at Ironman. Being gone 2 weekends in a row might go over like a fart in church.

Treesaw, by when do you need final comittment to calculate price and plan the menu? It looks like I am a +5 but I want to get closer to the date until I give a solid comittment.

I am assuming that it will be ok to set up a tent in that big field. That's one more available bed for the masses.
