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.

Snowing now. Curse ended?

It started snowing overnight. It's been snowing all day at ground level and on the mountain, although there's still less than a foot of accumulation even up there. Maybe this is it. This storm does keep going for days, although the freezing level gets sketchy at points. I want to do my Praise Ullr dance, but I've been hurt too many times...

Seymour is open - sort of

Seymour announced the last couple of days that they are opening Goldie as of today the 14th.

Woohoo....

Predictions continue to be iffy. No rainstorms, but it bounces up and down in and out of freezing level. I think December is a writeoff. Wow.

Couple of the guys who are Cypress regulars were talking about the damage done to their boards because of the thin cover. Glad I didn't decide to do that, although I suppose I would have used the Ride anyway....

Maybe some hope?

It's Dec 7th, and all snow predictions have faded into the distance like a mirage. However, the predictors starting Monday the 9th evening are showing significant snow off through the rest of the week. Maybe, maybe...

It's really infuriating -- it's been COLD for almost 2 weeks now, and I mean close to record-setting for this time of year. But all blue skies -- no chance of precip at all. In the lower mainland we seem to have the choice of cold or wet but not both at the same time....

It's December 1st, and there is NO SNOW AT ALL at the Seymour parking lot. All those winter storms I mentioned in my previous post have evaporated. It's been POURING RAIN for the last 48 hours or so. This is definitely going to be the worst season start ever. Well, next year we'll be using one of Timmytard's corporate deals and buying Cypress passes. Cypress isn't great right now, but with the snowmakers they at least have some runs open.

On an unrelated subject, I spent yesterday...
