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.

Blech!

I went to Cypress yesterday (Saturday). I did so with mixed feelings, given the weather report on snow-forecast.com . Still, I was hoping it wouldn't be bad, and/or it would improve.

Wowzers, could I be more wrong? It was cage-match rain combined with high winds (wouldn't be surprised if they closed some chairs at some point). The black runs off the Raven Ridge chair were all closed, and the bottom jump in Stomping Ground was closed. I did a single jump run and gave it up. The landing...

Seymour Day

Seymour today. After Cypress yesterday, it was a good chance to compare the two "close up".

This was my first opportunity to get a look at the "new improved" Mushroom park. Frankly, I liked the old one better. They've basically just left the two rollers in "old" Mushroom, and put all the features in the transition from Goldie to Lodge. So of course any use of the park requires taking the Lodge chair up, with all the lineups and slowness and constant stoppages....

Cypress Day

Yesterday (Saturday), I went to Cypress. For a birthday present, I'm being "allowed" to go boarding both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. OK, well, am I going to argue? I was actually going to Seymour but decided halfway there to go to Cypress. Couple of good reasons.. 1, there's some kind of snowball-fight contest on Seymour on Saturday. May or may not affect the lift lines, but it'll certainly affect parking and traffic. 2, since it's now March, my Cypress silver pass is now valid on...

After a week of snow

Posted 02-22-2014 at 05:11 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

As noted in my last entry, it started snowing the moment my vacation was over. And it's been snowing most of the week. They've gotten about a meter of snow this week. I'm pissed about missing it by a week, but I'm happy that there's snow now.

So I woke up this morning early to get ready for the mountain, looked outside, and it was snowing! In fact as I write this, it's still snowing, and it's accumulating in the back yard.

Anyway, I headed up early because of the snow...

What a crap day!

Posted 02-16-2014 at 03:47 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

This is the last day of my vacation, so I guess it's inevitable that it's going to be a big stinking pile of crap.

First, as usual the snow predictions have evaporated. Snow-forecast.com was showing heavy snow last night and this morning. When I got there though I discovered an inch of new over top of icy crust. Woop dee doo. Managed to get first chair though, so I decided to head straight down Unicorn. Well, not only was I fighting the icy crust all the way down (scritch...
