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.

Snow Daze

It's snowing on the mountains. It snowed a bit in Coquitlam today. Up to about 20 cm on Grouse. Who knows how much on Seymour? They really have to up their game with their web page...

Equipment update

Posted 11-14-2010 at 07:38 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I bought new boots this weekend. Comor was having a clearance sale on last year's stock, plus lesser sales on new items. I ended up getting Ride Jackson Boas again -- this time a half-size smaller and in black.

I adjusted all my bindings this weekend. Made sure the boots are centered on the board, made sure the bindings are adjusted properly. Good thing, too. The Burton Mission bindings on my Ride Havoc were way off. Had to adjust the highbacks, and one of the toe straps was in a...

I went up the mountain today to see what's what. And woohoo, there's snow! About 3-4 inches at parking lot level, 6 inches or so by Northlands Park level. It was snowing while I was there, as well. There's snow all the way down Chuck's Place, although not much of course. Looking good!

Snow Report

Posted 11-11-2010 at 08:57 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Things look to be finally gearing up. There's 8 cm at the parking lot on Seymour. There was a news segment on Global last night where they showed people hiking up Manning run from the parking lot, and it was all snow.

Meanwhile, Grouse has put up their winter web page, with accumulated snow fall and run statuses. That freezing level bump around Sunday to 3000+ meters keeps fluctuating, but the level drops to 900 a day or two after, so I'm going to write it off as an aberration....

Snow!

Posted 11-09-2010 at 04:41 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It's snowing on Grouse and Seymour today! I can see The Cut from the street, and it's WHITE! My wife looked at Seymour from home and it's WHITE! Finally, some progress.

I bought the Snowboard Addiction videos the other day. The download set includes buttering, jibbing, and jumping series, as well as a couple of bonus vids. I really like the buttering vids and I think they form the basis for what I'm going to be working on this season. I'll likely take on some of the simpler jumping...
