All over the mountain - 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.

All over the mountain

Posted 01-25-2013 at 10:33 PM by Donutz

Today was Seymour day with poutanen. Sure could have picked a better snow day -- it snowed the last couple of days, but the temps have been fluctuating and today we had a thin crust over really wet heavy poo. Made for some weird riding. My normal riding technique would just bury the nose edge-in all the time. Poutanen told me to go more tail-heavy, but I just couldn't! Too much indoctrination.

Anyway, we hit most of the runs on the mountain at least once, then concentrated on a few that had stuff we liked. Poutanen developed an unhealthy obsession with the bottom end of Towerline, and I developed an illicit relationship with a side kicker on Gun Barrel.

But riding with someone who is better than me pushed me out of my comfort zone. I rode areas that I have been avoiding, like the steep from Northlands to Velvel Gully, and Cliff House. Crashed some, too.

Meanwhile in other news, I'd sent an email to the Mt Seymour park manager this morning, hoping to get some new features suitable for beginners. Got a response today and sent a riposte. Maybe we'll get somewhere this round.
