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.

Not such a good day

Posted 12-29-2012 at 05:40 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went to Seymour this morning with all the stoke in the world, impatient to see what the park crew had set up in Mushroom -- and anything else new that they've thrown in. Wow, what a total letdown. They pulled the two flat boxes from Mushroom, put them on the transition to Lodge, and replaced them with -- get this -- two rollers. Yep, that's Mushroom, the beginner park. Two rollers. Whoopedy-fucking-do. Oh, they added a ride-on rail at the end of the two flat-boxes, except what they did was put...

Night Riding -- not my best subject

Posted 12-28-2012 at 10:41 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

We went to Seymour Wednesday afternoon for an afternoon/evening session. I had originally intended to take the bus up first thing in the morning, then meet the family when they came up later. Should have stuck with that. There was some new snow early in the day, but by the time we got there at 4pm it was snowcrete. Plus there was a constant light drizzle, the kind that keeps your goggles just fogged up enough so that you can't see where you're going. I am truly amazed at how much difference that...

Best. Season. Ever.

Posted 12-23-2012 at 09:27 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I might be jinxing things with the title, but right now it's really looking like a great season shaping up.

As of this morning, Seymour is at 541 cm and there's still more snow coming. I think they'll be well over 600 by the end of December. Woo-hah! I had a short discussion with a liftie at the bottom of Lodge Chair about that. Everyone seems to be excited about the snowpack. (No shit, Sherlock)

The tramp lessons are on hiatus until Jan 12th, so Saturdays are free...

Midweek snow report

Posted 12-19-2012 at 03:30 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just a short update... As of right now, Seymour has received 411 cm of snow this season. I think the average for an entire season is about 1000 cm. So mid-December we're almost halfway there, and the forecast for the rest of this week is for more dumpage. I need to sacrifice something to Ullr! Maybe my neighbour's dog...

Seriously, I hope I'm not jinxing this with all the gloating and capering about, but this could end up being a fantastic season!

Update and Day 2

Posted 12-16-2012 at 07:09 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First, an update since last post. It's been snowing on the mountain pretty much every day for the last 2 weeks, and the freezing level has stayed down so nothing is melting and there's no rain. More on this when I get to today on the mountain, but let me just say: wow!

So anyway, last week was really hard on the old bod. I was sore for days, including some very sore stomach muscles from having to dig myself out of several slams into deep snow. By this weekend I was feeling ok, so...
