Great Day!

I went to Seymour today, it being Good Friday. You'd have expected it to be really busy, but it was like a regular weekday. I think this may be like last year, where once the weather goes springlike people just forget about skiing and boarding. Fine by me.

Anyway, it was sunny, warm, spring slush (but not too wet yet), and semi-deserted. In addition, the park crew had rebuilt the beginner jump line off Young Guns -- which honestly I wasn't expecting. All in all, made for a perfect...

Mt Baker For Spring Break

For spring break we rented a condo in Snowater for 3 nights. Snowater is the closest accomodation to Baker, and it's still a half-hour drive up to the mountain. The good news is that the drive to Baker from home is overall shorter than Whistler, and Baker is cheaper. The bad news is that cell phone reception is sucky to non-existant.

Day 1
Went up with the family. Baker closes chairs 1 & 2 during the week, which reduces the number of greens available. However, Expresso...

Double Meh

Posted 03-07-2013 at 07:26 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I had taken today off because my wife was supposed to be going skiing with her school (grade 7 ski lessons). Unfortunately wife has had the flu so couldn't go, but I still had the day off...

Well, the first disappointment is that the Seymour park crew still hasn't rebuilt the beginner jump line. Just 3 pathetic rollers. They had plenty of time of course to rebuild the Young Guns jumps for yet another competition.

So that's it. I'm done with Seymour. They obviously don't...

Meh

Posted 03-05-2013 at 07:34 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went up Seymour on Sunday. Not really worth it. Everything was all melty from the torrential downpour a few days previously, and the overnight freeze had left an icy crust over everything. Nothing had been rebuilt. No jumps, no park (except a couple of boxes), no usable offpiste ... Meh. I tried for 3 hours to get something going. Finally left about noon.

Pineapple Express

Posted 03-01-2013 at 03:06 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

We've had a warm front come in and dump buckets of rain starting late yesterday afternoon. Seymour is closed for the day due to weather. Not surprising considering the predicted rainfall. Fortunately I think we've gotten enough snow in the last 10 days or so that the rain will just pack it down and make a more solid base.
