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.

Seymour is closed today (so is Grouse) with torrential rain & high winds. Same thing happened last year in December. Looking back, this season is really just like last year only a little more so. A little more rain, a little less snow, a little later season... At least I hope that's going to be the case, because last season was great once it got started.

I went up the mountain with the family on Monday the 2nd. It was ok -- there was some new snow so it wasn't snowcrete. They've...

2011-12-27 A good case of the uglies

First, an update on yesterday. We went snowshoeing around the Seymour trails with Basement Dog. It snowed basically the whole time. Very nice. I was really wishing I'd decided to go boarding instead, but too late at that point. We did manage to wear out Lucy -- apparently she slept in this morning for an extra hour or two.

Anyway, today was snow/rain/snow/rain/rain/rain all day. Throw in fog and you've got the kind of day that makes you reconsider your choice of sport. Seriously,...

2011-12-26 Where's the friggin' season?

Posted 12-26-2011 at 11:11 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Well, it's boxing day. It's finally snowing on the mountain today, and this might even stick around for a few days. Wow, it's been bad. I didn't even go boarding last weekend (tore my rec room apart instead), and I didn't go this weekend (mostly because it's xmas). But frankly the scratches I got on my board two weeks ago from all the crap sticking up through the 2.5 mm of snow coverage have just turned me off of the idea of going up until there's something to ride on.

This has been...

2011-12-11 Just getting started now

Posted 12-12-2011 at 01:46 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I was up Seymour yesterday for my third session this season. This one felt like the first real session, though. My first time up on Nov 26 was just for a couple of hours because I was getting over the flu. My second time up, last week, was pretty tame because I was just getting my sea legs back. Yesterday, I finally started pushing again.

Unfortunately with the crappy snow situation, there's not a ton of stuff to do. Side hits are non-existant, most of the runs are either closed completely...

2011-12-04 Second day, meh.

Went up Seymour for what was supposed to be a full day of boarding. I took the car, so I was able to bring up both boards. I had swapped around my bindings the night before, so I have the NXTs on the NS and the Romes on the Ride.

Anyway, there's not a lot of snow, so there aren't a lot of runs open. And even the ones that are open have roped-off sections everywhere. There were virtually no side-hits worthy of the name.

The parks are actually looking quite interesting....
