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.

Season is now over

This weekend marks the actual end of the season on Seymour. Not that there was a lot of snow left the last month or so, but there are always the diehards who will ride on one inch of snow. I haven't gone up at all in April since the 1st. The house sale and prepping for moving is taking too much attention, and anyway the conditions haven't been condusive to anything much.

I've been thinking about goals for next year, but I keep coming back to my central issue, which is that I've been...

End of Season Redux

Well, this year sucked. OK, I'll admit, snowboarding is like sex -- even when it's disappointing it's still pretty damned good. But still -- this year sucked. We had the late start. Then we had a fantastic December which made it look like the rest of the season would be a great one. Unfortunately, most of the snowfall for the entire season happened in December. Our usual major March dumps just never materialized. I never thought I'd actually live to say this, but I think the 09/10 season was better!...

Season is over

Even though Seymour is open until the 28th, I'd have to say the season is effectively over. I went up the mountain yesterday, mostly because they had actually predicted snow. Well, it was snowing when I got there, but it soon started turning to rain. On top of that the snow was so slow that on one occasion I actually couldn't get to the bottom of the lift on Mystery. I actually stalled on the last shallow section of the run. On a couple of occasions I almost went over the handlebars in zero inches...

OK Day

I went up to Seymour again on Easter Monday. Again it was dead. However, temps have gotten to the point where the slush was really really slow. Basically no point in doing the jump line as I couldn't get enough speed to do anything.

I had bought some new pants (Ride), boots (Thirty-Two Focus Boa) and bindings (Rome Targa) on the weekend. I'm holding the bindings until I get my new Proto, but tried out the new pants and boots. I've posted a review thread in the forum, but the bottom...
