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.

Not looking good...

Sombitch. I checked my blog from previous years and there's nothing like this. Up around 4km right up to the 18th. Can it drop down low enough within 2 weeks to still get snow in October?

I know, I know. Stuff that happens in October is no predictor of how the season is going to go. But this is the part of the pre-season where I go all OCD, so might as well roll with it.

Got Proto?

Yep. Picked it up this morning, took some pix, put the bindings on tonight. Let me just say again that the complexity of Flow installation and setup is nothing compared to Romes. The whole L/XL resizing, canting options, highback angles, yadda yadda, etc, is just a total pain.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanyway, got it all together. It's too late in the evening for a good finished picture, but I want to post my serial number (like I did with the Heritage).

Snow? SNOW!!!!????

Temps are dropping to freezing at the top of Seymour this weekend. Snow-forecast is actually showing a bit of snow on Friday and Monday. Hot damn!

Well it has been a cold wet September. Maybe things will continue to cool off faster than usual?

Some Random Thoughts

I'm starting to get antsy. It's 74 days as of today, and it's starting to feel real. So time for a recap and some navel-gazing.

First, I want to take the opportunity to complain about last season again. Such a good start to the season with a crapton of snow in December, followed by next to nothing the rest of the season. Admittedly there was a good dump in March, more than a meter of new, but it was immediately followed by torrential rain that actually shut the mountain down. There...
