Finally, some progress - 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.

Finally, some progress

Posted 11-21-2012 at 11:21 AM by Donutz

Despite the optimism of my previous post, it has NOT been snowing. Every day the snow-forecast website shows snow starting tomorrow. And every tomorrow, nothing happens. But finally, the Seymour website is showing 18cm of new and still snowing. And the snow-forecast website shows this continuing into the indefinite future with only a small bump up in 2 days.

But this is the 21st of November, and last year they OPENED on the 25th. Granted this doesn't necessarily say anything about how the season is going to go, but logic isn't helping right now. I want to punch something.

    Ugh. I can sympathize (actually, I'm jealous). My home hill about a week ago announced their intentions to open on November 23, but it warmed up just enough that they just announced today they are now aiming for December 1. Our only natural snow melted weeks ago, and now it's too warm to make it. It's been worse since I've usually started my season by now with a trip or two to Killington, but money has been tight so I'm dying for my local place to open.

    On a positive note, you inspire me. I didn't discover snowboarding until age 33, and most of the others who started as "late" as me don't ride park, so the fact that you're older than me and hitting the park gives me hope. I hope that didn't come across as implying you're old, it just seems that around here people have the attitude that the park is for people in their teens and twenties, or old vets who have been shredding for decades.

    Thanks for getting the blog text fixed, it actually caused me to read your blog, and I might use the feature myself now. Stay stoked, hopefully, this season will be better than last!
