I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

Well, that's it. Cypress has come out and admitted on their web page that the season is done. Previously, they were still doing the "it can still happen" thing. Pfft. As if.

Anyway, they've published their incentive for customers to re-up, and surprisingly, it's a good offer. For existing passholders, you can buy the same pass for next year at 80% off. Yeah, you heard me. That works out to $119 for a new GOLD pass for me for next year. I know I've been saying I wasn't going...

Crap continues

Posted 01-12-2015 at 10:55 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I figure I should post something just so the four people who are following my blog don't think I died.

Cypress continues to suck. Not that it's Cypress' fault, they're all sucking. They've now stopped opening the Lions chair, so other than the bunny slope, they're down to one mountain. They haven't even been able to make snow lately, as the freezing level has been above the peak.

The forecast is hinting at the possibility of snow by about Thursday of this...

Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaap!

First snowboarding of the season today. woo hoo. What a stinking, smoking pile of crap. I did one run and left. Basically, you have the following choices:

1. Corduroy.

That is all.

They didn't even open Lions chair, despite saying they were going to.

I don't know if I'm getting old, or impatient, or both, but I've got better things to do with my day than put up with crap conditions. I'll go back once they get some real snowfall....

No Snow

Posted 12-15-2014 at 05:04 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It's Dec 15th, and I'm still waiting for my first day on the mountain. We've just finished yet another series of rainstorms that have washed the snow away -- what snow there was...

I looked up on Saturday at the Cut on Grouse, and it was brown, brown, brown. Cypress has been closed as often as they've been open.

On the slightly not-as-negative side, there's a forecast of snow later this week. For whatever that's worth.

Sigh. Two weeks vacation coming...

Snow

It snowed last night. Just a couple of cm at street level, but Cypress is reporting 10 cm. The weather continues cold for several more days, so the snowmakers can do a job. It's possible that next weekend might just have enough snow for a session.
