Just some updates - 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.

Just some updates

Posted 11-10-2012 at 11:52 AM by Donutz

First, still nothing in the snow category. The freezing level has been hovering between 1000 & 1500 for the last several days and continues that way for the next week or so. There's occasional snow predicted - a cm here and a cm there - but nothing like the dumps we need. As Beetlejuice says, I'm feeling a little anxious here.

On a slightly more optimistic subject, Seymour has been awarded 3rd best parks in Western Canada. Sounds like faint praise, but when you consider that 1st and 2nd were Whistler and the Canada Olympic Park, that's actually some pretty good company to be in.

Also got a newsletter from Seymour where the park manager talks about some of the stuff they'll be doing this year. Based on that, this really looks like my year to become a park rat. Well, a bit anyway.

This is really hard. I'm hovering between incredible stoke that the season is coming up, and incredible panic that the season may be late and/or crappy.

I also read somewhere (can't remember where right now) that the backcountry at Seymour is some kind of amazing. That's probably the hike up that you can see from the top of Mystery. I may actually consider trying that this year. Woot!
