Wow, what a day yesterday

I'd have to say that was THE best day snowboarding, I've ever had in my entire life.

I now know, there is no place on Cypress that you can't go.
Never again will I have to search for powder.


Got there for opening hoping I would have first tracks on a cloudless day.
Not so much, it must have cleared up enough Thur night for all of it to get chewed up.
Now it was a bit foggy with light flurries.
Really disappointing.

Did one run & it sucked, got a bit of pow but basically nothin'. So I went on the hunt. Didn't have anyone with me, so I only had to worry about myself.

I went in the most treacherous place you can go & to my amazement, it was phenomenal No one goes in there & for good reason.
It has jaw dropping terrain, rollers ranging from huge to 30 foot cliffs.
A whole lotta cliffs & staircases, the whole thing is just so fuckin' steep, that everything is a jump. There are more cliffs in this one little area than all the rest of Cypress combined.
I need to borrow someones helmet cam, you guys need to see this.

The blizzard from last week brought a tonne of snow, but because of the high winds, some exposed places had none or very little.

Those winds didn't affect where I was, the huge old growth trees killed the wind. It was so deeeep, were talking 2-3+ feet.
If it hadn't been that deep, I probably wouldn't/couldn't have gone in there

This shit is no joke, I couldn't even get a single person to come in there with me.
I asked a few guys that I thought would be up for it.
Told them it was some pretty crazy shit, most of them were cocky & laughed.
They all said yes, but when we got to the entrance. You should have seen their faces when they had to eat humble pie

That's when I realized I could go anywhere, what I had been doing all day is without a doubt the hairiest terrain @ Cypress.
It's not even considered a run, it's "Danger permanently closed area"

From that point on, I just started jumping over the out-of-bounds fences
It was so dark & cold in there, powder should last days after it's dead & gone everywhere else.


Then @ roughly 6:30 I was talking to some chick who was using the air-bag, she said it was free all weekend.
What, what, holy shit, I booked it down & signed the waiver.

With all the recent snow the big kicker had less of a kick, but overall you went way bigger than any other time I had used it.
Combine that with the speed you could generate, holy shit.

I was doing the hugest laid out back flips, so big, they had to ask me to slow down my in-run because I was almost landing on the back bumper.

Stayed till closing 13 hours of riding

By far the best fuckin' day ever!!!
