Still Nada

It's Nov 30th. 1 day to snowboarding season, according to my whiteboard. Yeah, mmm, not happening. There's less snow on the mountain right now than there was at the end of October. I'll admit, if the season turns into a really great one like my very first season, I'll be ok with this crappy start. In fact, I'd be happy to start Dec 15th if it meant a really great snow season instead of a mediocre one. Unfortunately the way reality works, you get the worst of both. Sigh.

Now mind you,...

Tramp day 1

Posted 11-24-2012 at 08:48 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Had my first trampoline training session today. I guess I had some kind of fantasy that I'd be doing inverts first day. Yeah, reality sux. Today I learned to bounce up and down without leaving the trampoline entirely. I learned to land without locking my knees (bad. Very bad.) I also learned a few useful things, like how to do a 360 without throwing my shoulder downwards and going off-axis. And I learned how to "throw" a 360 with far less effort than I've been putting into it --...

Finally, some progress

Despite the optimism of my previous post, it has NOT been snowing. Every day the snow-forecast website shows snow starting tomorrow. And every tomorrow, nothing happens. But finally, the Seymour website is showing 18cm of new and still snowing. And the snow-forecast website shows this continuing into the indefinite future with only a small bump up in 2 days.

But this is the 21st of November, and last year they OPENED on the 25th. Granted this doesn't necessarily say anything about...

Some stuff

Posted 11-16-2012 at 12:32 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just some observations and comments, while hopping from foot to foot waiting for the season and the snow.

1. Snow
The snow-forecast predictions are looking good. The predicted snow dump moved from Wednesday to Friday, but it's predicting snow right off the end of the 6-day forecast. There's a period of rain or two, but that keeps fading in and out. This is really going down to the wire though.

2. Last season
So I've been bitching and moaning about the...

Snow maybe?

Posted 11-13-2012 at 04:42 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

The situation seems to be improving. It looks like after Wednesday it's going to dump continuously for the next several days. Plus the freezing level is coming down to 1000 or below. If this pans out, this weekend could be the time that the wife and I hike up for some early runs. Sweet!
