Trying to get over it - Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums
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.

Trying to get over it

Posted 11-16-2013 at 11:41 AM by Donutz

I re-read my blog entries from last year, and it seems I was still whining about the lack of snow on Nov 30th!! And last year we ended up opening on the 7th and had a gorgeous December. Rest of the season sucked, but that's another subject .

Anyway, it looks like winter storms are lining up to hit BC one after the other. There's bumps in freezing level between each storm with accompanying rain, but as long as the snow level keeps increasing I can live with that.

Whistler is opening EARLY this year -- this weekend, with only 5 chairs running, but if you're shaking with the snowboarding DTs, that's good enough. Haven't heard about Cypress opening yet. Timmytard is having a fit waiting for them to make a move .

So, I guess I'll relax a little (no I won't, not really) and just wait for December. Meanwhile, to re-re-reiterate, my goals for this year...

First and foremost, stop being so overly cautious. Have to take some chances, have to attack some stuff instead of putting it off.

Second, take advantage of the new Proto. With the flex and pop that thing is supposed to have, I no longer have an excuse for not being able to do proper ollies and butters and such. So work on it.

Third, stop bombing the runs every single time. Spend more time exploring the side hits and such.

And fourth, given the amount of time I spent on the beginner jump line last year, I should be able to conquer Northlands this season.

Come on, season!
