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.

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 08:10 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,...

One Fine Day

Posted 01-28-2013 at 12:10 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today is the last day of vacation. It's been a pretty good two weeks, but I've noticed that I'm a bit sore in places. Discovered a real beauty of a bruise on my right tricep, and I still don't know how I managed that. My piriformis was acting up a bit this morning, and my knees are letting me know they're there. Hmmph. Crybabies. Snowboarding time.

Anyway, it was foggy and lightly snowing this morning when I got to the mountain. Over the course of the day the fog got lighter and the...

All over the mountain

Posted 01-25-2013 at 11:33 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was Seymour day with poutanen. Sure could have picked a better snow day -- it snowed the last couple of days, but the temps have been fluctuating and today we had a thin crust over really wet heavy poo. Made for some weird riding. My normal riding technique would just bury the nose edge-in all the time. Poutanen told me to go more tail-heavy, but I just couldn't! Too much indoctrination.

Anyway, we hit most of the runs on the mountain at least once, then concentrated...
