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.

Some stuff

Posted 11-16-2012 at 12:32 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just some observations and comments, while hopping from foot to foot waiting for the season and the snow.

1. Snow
The snow-forecast predictions are looking good. The predicted snow dump moved from Wednesday to Friday, but it's predicting snow right off the end of the 6-day forecast. There's a period of rain or two, but that keeps fading in and out. This is really going down to the wire though.

2. Last season
So I've been bitching and moaning about the...

Snow maybe?

Posted 11-13-2012 at 04:42 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

The situation seems to be improving. It looks like after Wednesday it's going to dump continuously for the next several days. Plus the freezing level is coming down to 1000 or below. If this pans out, this weekend could be the time that the wife and I hike up for some early runs. Sweet!

Openings announced

Posted 11-12-2012 at 11:25 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Cypress has announced opening day is Wednesday the 14th. Of course Grouse immediately announced Tuesday the 13th. Seymour as usual is silent.

The snow predictions are looking better over the next week, but it'd better produce some snow damned quick or there's gonna be trouble.

Just some updates

Posted 11-10-2012 at 11:52 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First, still nothing in the snow category. The freezing level has been hovering between 1000 & 1500 for the last several days and continues that way for the next week or so. There's occasional snow predicted - a cm here and a cm there - but nothing like the dumps we need. As Beetlejuice says, I'm feeling a little anxious here.

On a slightly more optimistic subject, Seymour has been awarded 3rd best parks in Western Canada. Sounds like faint praise, but when you consider that 1st...

2012-11-01 God DAMN it!

Posted 11-01-2012 at 04:40 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

For the last week or so, it's been nothing but pounding, driving rain and warm temps. Freezing level consistently between 2000-3000 meters. There's no chance that there's any snow left on any of the locals at this point! Snow-forecast is showing a faint hint of the freezing level maybe dropping to something sane by end of next week, but it's still only a hint. Certainly this has got to be a worst-case scenario. If we can recover from this and have a good opening on Seymour before Dec 1st, I'll just...
