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.

2011-11-12 Finally snowfall!

Posted 11-12-2011 at 10:49 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 10:27 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 08:21 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.

2011-10-23 Finally got a Contour!

Posted 10-23-2011 at 07:07 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Bought a Contour Roam today. It's the bottom-end contour, but for the price I couldn't walk away. Future shop had one on the shelf for $229, but Launch Helmetcams in North Van was selling them for $199 including an 8GB memcard. Future shop matched. Plus I had a $60 gift certificate that I'd never used, so $160 net after taxes.

We'll see if I use it a lot of if it turns out to be a novelty item that I get tired of. If the former, I'll maybe look at a Contour GPS for the next round....
