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.

Mid-off-season update

Posted 06-16-2013 at 11:51 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Well, not really "mid". I think there's about 170 days left as of today, but we're approaching the longest day of the year which is kind of a symbolic milestone.

We've finished the move to the new digs (phew!) although we're nowhere near done unpacking. I hadn't realized how much shit we had in the crawlspace until I had to hump it out to the moving truck. Now it's all stacked in the garage while the car sits parked on the street. Yeesh!

I'm certainly going...

Season is now over

This weekend marks the actual end of the season on Seymour. Not that there was a lot of snow left the last month or so, but there are always the diehards who will ride on one inch of snow. I haven't gone up at all in April since the 1st. The house sale and prepping for moving is taking too much attention, and anyway the conditions haven't been condusive to anything much.

I've been thinking about goals for next year, but I keep coming back to my central issue, which is that I've been...

Mucho dumpage

Posted 02-22-2013 at 01:49 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It's been snowing pretty regularly for the last couple of days, and now the floodgates have opened. 63 cm so far today, with no signs of slowing. Heavy snow predicted right through the 6-day forecast. I'm going on Monday this "weekend" because of house prep. That hopefully means lots of new snow and no one to compete with!

Midweek snow report

Posted 12-19-2012 at 03:30 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just a short update... As of right now, Seymour has received 411 cm of snow this season. I think the average for an entire season is about 1000 cm. So mid-December we're almost halfway there, and the forecast for the rest of this week is for more dumpage. I need to sacrifice something to Ullr! Maybe my neighbour's dog...

Seriously, I hope I'm not jinxing this with all the gloating and capering about, but this could end up being a fantastic season!

Opening Day!

Posted 12-06-2012 at 12:51 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

And finally. We had about a foot of new snow in the last 24 hrs. I had said before that that's about all we'd need, and I was right. Seymour has announced opening day tomorrow, Dec 7th. Only a week late. And it's not going to be much of a base, so I think I'll be using the old Ride the first couple of times up.
