Snow! - Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums
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.

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 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 yesterday to get our passes printed. This store is about 10 blocks up Lonsdale from the one that did the passes last year. For whatever reason, when we got there there was no line-up to speak of so it went pretty quickly. That turns out to be unfortunate, because it gave the wimmin lots of time to shop. Yep. $1300 it cost me to get out of that place. You'd think I'd have learned by now...

Anyway, to be fair that $1300 includes a Volcom jacket for me. That's a damn fine jacket -- 15000mm rating, good pockets (including an ipod pouch) and a built-in face mask!. Cool!

We're hoping to go up to Seymour today with basement dog. I'll post a comment with results.
