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.

It's December 1st, and there is NO SNOW AT ALL at the Seymour parking lot. All those winter storms I mentioned in my previous post have evaporated. It's been POURING RAIN for the last 48 hours or so. This is definitely going to be the worst season start ever. Well, next year we'll be using one of Timmytard's corporate deals and buying Cypress passes. Cypress isn't great right now, but with the snowmakers they at least have some runs open.

On an unrelated subject, I spent yesterday...

Trying to get over it

Posted 11-16-2013 at 11:41 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I re-read my blog entries from last year, and it seems I was still whining about the lack of snow on Nov 30th!! And last year we ended up opening on the 7th and had a gorgeous December. Rest of the season sucked, but that's another subject .

Anyway, it looks like winter storms are lining up to hit BC one after the other. There's bumps in freezing level between each storm with accompanying rain, but as long as the snow level keeps increasing I can live with that.

It's Nov 8th and all the snow predictions have turned into vapor. It's been raining on the mountains, we've got another storm coming in which looks to be dumping more rain on the mountains right through the 14th or so. Cypress is trying to use their snow guns, but it has to be below freezing -- and stay below freezing. FML. This had better turn around soon.

Well, it looks like we're finally going to get some snow. Forecast is showing the freezing level coming way down as of Nov 2nd, and steady snow. Hm. We'll see...

Got Protection?

I do.

I went to the snow show today. Big disappointment. There were fewer exhibitors than previous years, they had less on display, fewer big discounts, and a smaller swap meet.

Couple of good things, though. Manning Park had a booth. I talked to them, and they told me they're not only fully open, but they have a couple of new groomer cats and are going to have an actual terrain park.

Also, I talked to someone at the Cypress Mountain booth, and it...
