Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums - Entries for October 2012
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.

Goals for this season

Posted 10-28-2012 at 06:03 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It's time to "officially" identify my goals for this season. They are:

- Stop being so cautious
- learn to hit the northlands jumps properly and dependably, without knuckling every other time.
- Do street-style boxes
- do rails
- Get 180's-at-will nailed
- Learn 360s on small jumps
- Do Devil's Drop, and all other runs on Seymour comfortably
- Ground tricks.
- Become completely comfortable with switch.
- Perfect...

No Snow...

Posted 10-28-2012 at 03:28 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

After a couple of epic days of snowfall, the freezing level bumped itself up to 2000m and has been hanging there for days. Add torrential rain the last 24 hours and i doubt there's anything left.

I think something very similar happened the previous two years as well. I guess the first snowfall of the year is really meaningless except maybe psychologically.

In other news, the Mystery chair is officially complete, which is good news.

Snow!

Posted 10-21-2012 at 12:09 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

So the predictions were right! Snowed yesterday (20th) on Seymour. Someone posted a pic of the Mystery loading station (the new one!) covered in a thin film of snow. And this morning the Grouse website reports -3 and lightly snowing. The snow-forecast.com website is showing the freezing level staying around 1000m for the next 6 days. Despite my attempts at cynicism, I'm feeling some emotional investment. Please, please don't break my heart!

We went to North Shore Ski & Board...

Snow?

Yippee ki-yay, etc! Snow predicted on Seymour! Freezing level down almost to the bottom lift on the 20th. This actually seems to be a little ahead of last year's schedule. Not that I'm putting too much emotional investment into that. Last year looked pretty good at this stage and turned out to suck brutally.
