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.

2012-03-25 Back on Seymour

Posted 03-26-2012 at 08:07 AM by Donutz

First day back on Seymour after 4 days on Whistler. It was a beautiful warm day, no fresh snow but lots and lots of groomed accumulation. And when I say warm, I mean that by mid-morning I was riding in my under-armour with the jacket stuffed into the locker. That has a downside of course. By just before noon we were getting snowpoxy everywhere. I went up to Brockton for most of the afternoon where there was little or no sticky snow problem.

The time on Whistler has made a huge difference. First, I was on Seymour for 11 hours, and still going strong when we packed it in. My wife had joined me in late afternoon for a couple of hours. Wife hit Manning run a half-dozen times -- something that she's been wanting to do, but didn't feel up to before. She was mega-stoked at the end of it.

I started the day hitting the Lodge park jump, and kept that up until snowpoxy made it impossible to clear. At that point I went up to Brockton and hit everything for most of the afternoon. I spent most of my time on Stearns Stairway, practicing moguls. I also hit Cliff House once, which is as steep as Jersey Cream Bowl on Whistler, but much shorter of course. I also hit Nutcracker finally (the steep between Northlands and Friendly). No problem. I hit several random jumps, including one on the left branch of Friendly that is a very kicky launcher with a tilted landing. That was a bit sketchy, but I pulled it off.

All in all, it was one of the best feeling days this season, simply because I felt confident that I'm up for anything Seymour can throw at me. I'm going to try to hit the few remaining runs that I haven't tried before the end of the season. About the only things I haven't done yet that I'd like to are: backside 180s, at least try to throw a 360, and hit the 3rd jump on Northlands a few more times.
