Warming up - 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.

Warming up

Posted 01-16-2013 at 11:30 PM by Donutz

The inversion is theoretically settled in over us now. Temps were up a little today, but it's not like armageddon. The only real difference is that it was sunny for most of the day on Mystery, while foggy on Lodge. The snow was somewhat softer, although the tree run through Pete's was still pretty heinous.

Because of the fog issue, I spent most of today on the top half. This was fine though, as I took the opportunity to try some of the different paths through Friendly Nut House. Didn't really do a lot special today; just continued to work on some of the techniques. I actually pulled of a couple of semi-good sameways, ad-libbed butters a couple of times, and I'm getting pretty good at ollies.

One interesting item is the side slope at the bottom of Manning. They pushed up the snow using a snow cat so it's a proper hit now. I went right to vertical a couple of times and actually pulled off a couple of good ally-oops.

Taking tomorrow off to get some stuff done. Vacation resumes on Friday.
