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.

2011-01-09 - Bleah!

Another cruddy day. Now, first I have to admit that the sky was blue, the temperature was perfect. But the snow was slippery cement again. As I said in my previous post, on these days I don't get adventurous with my boarding. And it was BUSY again. By 9:30am, Mystery was almost too busy to be worth going up. It never quite got to the peaks we saw during the holidays, but it was all day!

I did have one good milestone - I finally hit a box that required a ramp/ollie up. The first time...

Wow, what a crap day! Got up the mountain early, and got almost an hour and a half of good boarding in before the crowds started to get nuts. I also managed to pull a muscle in my lower back while avoiding a skier at the bottom of Lodge chair. Two days later and I'm still a little sore. I actually passed on going up yesterday (1/3), preferring to let it heal.

The snow was really cruddy -- several days with no snow and repeated grooming results in something like soft cement -- and...

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

Posted 12-28-2010 at 07:29 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

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...
