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.

2012-01-18 First time on Cypress

Posted 01-18-2012 at 07:10 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I decided to go to Cypress today. I've got the time, it's midweek (the best time to go anywhere), so why not?

Got there just a bit after 9am opening. It was pretty empty. I guess the midweek thing works for Cypress too. I wonder if it works for Whistler? Anyway, it was damned cold. One of the ski patrollers told me I should protect my face. Fortunately I had a mask in my pocket so I just whipped it out and put it on.

So, Cypress? Meh. It's bigger, all right. A little...

2012-01-16 A better day

Posted 01-16-2012 at 05:56 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was pretty great. First though, they opened at 9:30 and not a 9:00. I think I did that once before. Oh well, stand around for 20 minutes. But I was first on the lift and got first tracks on Mystery.

The day was snowing, sunny, foggy (briefly), sunny, and snowy again by the time I left at 2pm. There had been a couple of inches of snow overnight, so we had some good stuff to start with. And today, I hit everything. I've really finally got all my skillz back, and more importantly...

2012-01-15 Nice day

Posted 01-15-2012 at 09:54 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I was up on the mountain at 9am sharp this morning, and quite surprised to find myself parking well back from my usual spot. Unfortunately Seymour was hosting a slopestyle competition today, and everyone on the planet seemingly was there. By 10am the lineups were worse than they normally are at 11:30, and it never let up. Even Lodge chair had lineups that actually went up the slope.

BUT Mushroom had 3 boxes - a wide box, a flat box, and a flat-down box -- and all ride-ons. Additionally,...

2012-01-13 Finally!!!

Posted 01-14-2012 at 10:17 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Well, there's been a lot to write about since last Sunday! First, I'm now on 2 weeks vacation. About last Monday or so, the snow forecasts started to look very very hopeful. I decided to take a chance and book my 2 weeks in order to take advantage of it if the snow materialized. And last night Ullr started to deliver! We went to Seymour for our regular Friday Night session. About halfway through the evening, it started to snow. There were a couple of false starts, but once it got going, it was great!...

2012-01-08 Why bother?

Went up the mountain Sunday morning. Took one look, went home. shit.

I'm writing this on Wednesday, and snow-forecast is actually starting to show something good coming up. Maybe we'll get winter soon?
