Ugly snow, but still... - 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.

Ugly snow, but still...

It was a coin flip, but I decided to go up to Seymour again today. I've been having so much fun with Mushroom, I figured why not once more. Temps were above freezing, so it's not like Cypress was going to be running the guns or anything.

It had snowed a fair bit in the last 24 hours, but given the temps, it should be no surprise that the stuff was very wet and very slow. Made the jumps difficult as I just couldn't get the speed. Forcing the jump by trying to pop huge just results in off-kilter jumps, and I had a few of those. Also biffed on the dance floor a couple of times because I tried to go up on an edge. That just never works .

I didn't really do anything new in the park -- this was more of a practice session, I guess. However I also tried butters again -- something I didn't really do at all last year because of the tailbone injury. And they are way easier on the Proto. I was killing it at a level that I never had with the Heritage. Well, that's the flex I guess. My switch riding is now to the point where I'm going to have to get out of Goldie and start going down Chuck's.

The snowfall is making things a bit better on the mountain overall. Unicorn is now open, and Pete's Run is now open although it's teeth-rattling at speed. I did a Unicorn run early enough that I was one of the first, and it was joyous. I actually did a small drop purely by mistake. Thought I was on trail, went over the hump, and oh, not so much. Could have been bad, but it was good.

Good day, all in all. Next week should be even better with all the predicted snowfall.
