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.

Best. Season. Ever.

Posted 12-23-2012 at 09:27 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I might be jinxing things with the title, but right now it's really looking like a great season shaping up.

As of this morning, Seymour is at 541 cm and there's still more snow coming. I think they'll be well over 600 by the end of December. Woo-hah! I had a short discussion with a liftie at the bottom of Lodge Chair about that. Everyone seems to be excited about the snowpack. (No shit, Sherlock)

The tramp lessons are on hiatus until Jan 12th, so Saturdays are free...

Midweek snow report

Posted 12-19-2012 at 03:30 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just a short update... As of right now, Seymour has received 411 cm of snow this season. I think the average for an entire season is about 1000 cm. So mid-December we're almost halfway there, and the forecast for the rest of this week is for more dumpage. I need to sacrifice something to Ullr! Maybe my neighbour's dog...

Seriously, I hope I'm not jinxing this with all the gloating and capering about, but this could end up being a fantastic season!

Update and Day 2

Posted 12-16-2012 at 07:09 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First, an update since last post. It's been snowing on the mountain pretty much every day for the last 2 weeks, and the freezing level has stayed down so nothing is melting and there's no rain. More on this when I get to today on the mountain, but let me just say: wow!

So anyway, last week was really hard on the old bod. I was sore for days, including some very sore stomach muscles from having to dig myself out of several slams into deep snow. By this weekend I was feeling ok, so...

First Snowboarding day

Posted 12-08-2012 at 09:53 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up today -- second day of the season for Seymour, and the first day for me. The website said they'd be opening at 9:30, but I got there just after 9 and they were already loading people up.

The new Mystery chair is great. Just like the Whistler chairs, it slows right down at the bottom and the top, and just zooms along in the middle. It wasn't actually running twice as fast as the old one, but someone assured me that yesterday it had been running faster. The chair doesn't have...

Opening Day!

Posted 12-06-2012 at 12:51 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

And finally. We had about a foot of new snow in the last 24 hrs. I had said before that that's about all we'd need, and I was right. Seymour has announced opening day tomorrow, Dec 7th. Only a week late. And it's not going to be much of a base, so I think I'll be using the old Ride the first couple of times up.
