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.

Boxing day stat

Posted 12-28-2010 at 07:32 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up to Seymour again early this morning. After yesterday, I was kind of stiff, but I'm certainly not going to skip a chance to get in some boarding. It was snowing and foggy and really cold first thing, but all that cleared up within an hour or two. I finally managed to go down to Velvet Gully from Joel's Flight without cratering. Did it several times. I also went down Wonger and Earl's, both of which were ungroomed with deep snow. I really seem to be improving on that type of rough unpredictable...

Xmas day stat

Just had a great couple of days on the mountain! Yesterday (Monday), I took transit to Seymour first thing in the morning, with my family planning to come up later in the afternoon. It was foggy and snowing when I got there. The fog lifted later in the day, but the snow never stopped all day.

I started the day doing runs off Mystery chair. I couldn't really get too adventurous though because of the fog. It's very difficult to go full gonzo when you can't see what's coming up. I went...

Yeah, the wife & I went to Seymour tonight to get in a couple of hours of boarding/skiing. I stayed with her to help her get over her fear of the chair lift. I hit the new jump on every run, then went into the rough's at the side of Chuck's. I've been trying to do a little quarter-pipe stuff off the side of Chuck's down near the bottom, and I think on the last run, it kinda started to come together.
The jump was getting slidier as the evening wore on, and I swear towards the end there...

I'm probably going to have to work a little harder on the titles of my posts. It's looking more and more like a good season this year. I went to Seymour today and it was almost a replay of Tuesday.

I got there at 8:30 am, just at opening time, and it immediately started snowing. Not as hard as last time, but any snow is good. The snow stopped for a while around lunch, but came back with a vengeance in the afternoon. I'd bet that night skiing tonight would be pretty good.

Woohoo!

Wow. From the hell on earth that was Sunday, to heaven on Tuesday. Well, that's weather soup in Vancouver.

I was at the mountain just after 9:30, and it was looking a little sparse. The torrential rains of the previous several days hadn't left much to work with. There were bare roots, rocks, grass patches... Not encouraging. However just after 10:30 or so, it started snowing, and it didn't stop all day. For at least half the day it was thick enough to seriously hamper visibilitiy!...
