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.

Finally, some progress

It's been snowing the last couple of days (although staying very close to rain/snow level) and Seymour has now opened the Mystery chair. We'll be going up this weekend, I think.

Happy 2014. Ungh.

Yeah, it's Jan 1st, 2014. How's the season, you ask? What season, sez I. The last week or so, we've started to see public lamentations on the news about the crappy season. They've even admitted to That Which Must Not Be Said, that Whistler is having a bad one! Gasp! (Yeah, I'm not bitter).

Snow-forecast.com has predicted a lot of snow coming up in the next few days for close to a month now, but when the day rolls up, there's nada. Always in the future. And still, either wet or cold...

Snowing now. Curse ended?

Posted 12-20-2013 at 05:08 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It started snowing overnight. It's been snowing all day at ground level and on the mountain, although there's still less than a foot of accumulation even up there. Maybe this is it. This storm does keep going for days, although the freezing level gets sketchy at points. I want to do my Praise Ullr dance, but I've been hurt too many times...

Seymour is open - sort of

Posted 12-14-2013 at 09:49 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Seymour announced the last couple of days that they are opening Goldie as of today the 14th.

Woohoo....

Predictions continue to be iffy. No rainstorms, but it bounces up and down in and out of freezing level. I think December is a writeoff. Wow.

Couple of the guys who are Cypress regulars were talking about the damage done to their boards because of the thin cover. Glad I didn't decide to do that, although I suppose I would have used the Ride anyway....

Maybe some hope?

It's Dec 7th, and all snow predictions have faded into the distance like a mirage. However, the predictors starting Monday the 9th evening are showing significant snow off through the rest of the week. Maybe, maybe...

It's really infuriating -- it's been COLD for almost 2 weeks now, and I mean close to record-setting for this time of year. But all blue skies -- no chance of precip at all. In the lower mainland we seem to have the choice of cold or wet but not both at the same time....
