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.

I went up Seymour on Sunday. Not really worth it. Everything was all melty from the torrential downpour a few days previously, and the overnight freeze had left an icy crust over everything. Nothing had been rebuilt. No jumps, no park (except a couple of boxes), no usable offpiste ... Meh. I tried for 3 hours to get something going. Finally left about noon.

We've had a warm front come in and dump buckets of rain starting late yesterday afternoon. Seymour is closed for the day due to weather. Not surprising considering the predicted rainfall. Fortunately I think we've gotten enough snow in the last 10 days or so that the rain will just pack it down and make a more solid base.

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!

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...
