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.

Time to start organizing myself for next year. What, I'm not OCD or anything

- Alley-oops - proper ones, with a nollie and 180 or 360 out.
- Be able to adlib tricks off side hits.
- Learn as many tricks as possible from the Youtube "29 ground tricks" vid.
- Be able to ollie and nollie at will
- All the butter variations
- pretzels
- Be able to ride switch on pretty much anything...

2011 Wrapup

Posted 04-24-2011 at 06:03 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

So, the season is over. Itís been a damned good one. Iíve improved more in this season than in both previous seasons combined. Of course, it was a good season weather-wise, and I already knew that when the snow is crap, I donít get ambitious with trying new things or aggressive riding. It was a long season, too: Nov 25th to Apr 24th. I also did 40 days this season, which is pretty good.

Iíve noticed that when Iím able to go boarding for several days in a row, I get more results...

2011-04-24 And that's a wrap.

Posted 04-24-2011 at 04:07 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

That's it. Season's over.

Took the car up this morning. It was totally dead first thing. Started to get slightly busy about 11:30, but never anything that would cause impatience in the line. The snow was hardpack at opening but softened up pretty fast.

I did some butters, some ollies and nollies, and some side hits. Nothing ambitious. Just trying to enjoy the last day.

Funny thing about the ollies. I made a concerted effort to do a few on each run today,...

2011-04-23 Short day but fun

First part of today was spent snowshoeing with the wife. The snowshoe trails around Seymour are quite extensive, since there's both the resort trails (paid) and the provincial park trails (free). Wife likes snowshoeing because it's good exercise and very quiet and zen. I enjoy it once in a while, but it gets boring after a couple of hours.

In the afternoon, I went for a little bit of boarding. Didn't do much of anything new or difficult, just had fun today. It was shirt-sleeve weather...

2011-04-22 Entering final weekend

Posted 04-23-2011 at 09:59 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

This is the final weekend for Seymour. After Sunday, it's seven months of purgatory. I'm going to try to get up there three times this weekend so I can make forty days this season.

It was a great day on the mountain. Kind of surprising, as it wasn't looking very promising at first. Bit cold, kind of cloudy, and very hard-pack, bordering on icy. After a couple of runs off the Mystery chair, I decided to go down to the Lodge chair where the snow would hopefully soften up sooner. By...
