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.

2011-11-18 Getting close!

Posted 11-18-2011 at 11:26 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Reading last year's entries and comparing them to what's happening this year, it's really kind of spooky how close it's tracking. We had snow on Wednesday at home level -- There are still piles where it was plowed off the streets. The mountain's a little behind, I think. Last year by this time they'd had a 55cm dump. Last night's dump of 18cm was the best so far. But still, Seymour has apparently announced a Nov 25 opening. I say "apparently" because they haven't put it on their web site....

2011-11-12 Finally snowfall!

Posted 11-12-2011 at 11:49 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

We went up the mountain today for some snowshoeing. Finally, the snow is falling. More than a foot of snow on the top of Mystery. Funny how the pattern is following last year's pattern almost to the day. First snow around 26 Oct, then some warm weather with occasional snow. Then the snow really starts to come around the second week of Nov. OK, I can remember that from year to year.

Anyway, there were a couple of skiers and boarders on the mountain today, but I think it was still too...

Bunch of items...

Got our seasons passes yesterday at Second Wave. I also got my shuttle pass.

We went up the mountain today. The situation is a little better than I was thinking. There's snow everywhere, although the rocks still show. Some guy was even boarding down Manning. Sure hope he was using a beater board, because there's a good chance he's going to have at least one core shot.

Anway, we hiked up to Mystery Lake, which is completely frozen over....

2011-10-28 Snow Show

Posted 10-28-2011 at 11:27 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went to the Vancouver Snow Show tonight. Bought a pair of Rome 390's for cheap.

It's still snowing on the mountain, mixed with rain. Waiting for it to start sticking.

2011-10-26 First Snow!

Posted 10-27-2011 at 09:21 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It finally snowed on Seymour! And interestingly, on the same date as last year -- October 26. As I went to work this morning (on the 27th), the mountains were all white about halfway down. It was gone by this afternoon of course, but that's to be expected for the first fall. Snow-forecast.com is looking pretty good -- freezing level is bouncing around but staying below 2000m.

So, the sweet spot is the last week of October.
