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.

We've gotten more than a meter of snow in the last 48 hours, and Seymour was closed yesterday due to a power transformer needing emergency repairs (something about a car hitting it). So barring rain, today was destined to be epic.

Apparently everyone else thought so too. I got to the mountain a little before opening to discover a lineup for the Mystery chair that would put a weekend start to shame. Talking to people on the chair, it turns out a lot of people took the day off or developed...

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!

Meh

Well, today had all the cards stacked against it. There's been virtually no snow for the last week; there was a competition scheduled for today in Young Guns; I was "under orders" to keep the day short due to home commitments; and I'm sore from moving a ton of navvy jack yesterday.

But, snowboarding is snowboarding. So up I went. I managed to get 2-3 runs in on the jump line. They've changed it a bit again, gotten rid of the bottom jump to put in some street-style rails...

Family day weekend

It's the "Family Day" weekend, and Seymour has announced that they'll be giving 25% off lift tickets and some lessons on Monday. Based on that, I figured Sunday was the day to go. I don't know yet how bad Monday (today) will be, but Sunday was great. It was certainly busy, being a long weekend and good weather, but not quite as bad as it could have been. It was generally sunny, although fog kept rolling in and out all day. Snow was pretty good, groomed but still soft.

So...

A new jump line!

Posted 02-03-2013 at 07:10 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Yeah, that's right. That's what I'm saying! I got up to Seymour this morning and after the standard two runs down from Mystery, I decided to check if there's anything new to be seen. I did a run first through Mushroom, and discovered that they've build up the rollers and added a hip jump. OK, but not riveting. They've built up the rollers in the beginner park line as well, and cleaned up the table-top/hip-jump track. No change on the two boxes and the rail, though.

On my second run,...
