Blech! - 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.

I went to Cypress yesterday (Saturday). I did so with mixed feelings, given the weather report on . Still, I was hoping it wouldn't be bad, and/or it would improve.

Wowzers, could I be more wrong? It was cage-match rain combined with high winds (wouldn't be surprised if they closed some chairs at some point). The black runs off the Raven Ridge chair were all closed, and the bottom jump in Stomping Ground was closed. I did a single jump run and gave it up. The landing areas were all mashed up, and likely to get worse. The problem is that there is such a small snow-pack this year. In a good year, the snow would be able to absorb a rainstorm with only the top inch or two being affected. But with the crap snowfall this year, the rain is able to saturate the entire pack all the way down. Makes for really crappy snow, with bare patches showing up everywhere, and brown snow where the stuff has been chewed up and not renewed.

I'm beginning to think February was the entire season. Anyway, left after 45 minutes.
