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.

End of Season Redux

Well, this year sucked. OK, I'll admit, snowboarding is like sex -- even when it's disappointing it's still pretty damned good. But still -- this year sucked. We had the late start. Then we had a fantastic December which made it look like the rest of the season would be a great one. Unfortunately, most of the snowfall for the entire season happened in December. Our usual major March dumps just never materialized. I never thought I'd actually live to say this, but I think the 09/10 season was better!...

Season is over

Posted 04-07-2013 at 03:36 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Even though Seymour is open until the 28th, I'd have to say the season is effectively over. I went up the mountain yesterday, mostly because they had actually predicted snow. Well, it was snowing when I got there, but it soon started turning to rain. On top of that the snow was so slow that on one occasion I actually couldn't get to the bottom of the lift on Mystery. I actually stalled on the last shallow section of the run. On a couple of occasions I almost went over the handlebars in zero inches...

OK Day

I went up to Seymour again on Easter Monday. Again it was dead. However, temps have gotten to the point where the slush was really really slow. Basically no point in doing the jump line as I couldn't get enough speed to do anything.

I had bought some new pants (Ride), boots (Thirty-Two Focus Boa) and bindings (Rome Targa) on the weekend. I'm holding the bindings until I get my new Proto, but tried out the new pants and boots. I've posted a review thread in the forum, but the bottom...

Great Day!

I went to Seymour today, it being Good Friday. You'd have expected it to be really busy, but it was like a regular weekday. I think this may be like last year, where once the weather goes springlike people just forget about skiing and boarding. Fine by me.

Anyway, it was sunny, warm, spring slush (but not too wet yet), and semi-deserted. In addition, the park crew had rebuilt the beginner jump line off Young Guns -- which honestly I wasn't expecting. All in all, made for a perfect...

Double Meh

Posted 03-07-2013 at 07:26 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I had taken today off because my wife was supposed to be going skiing with her school (grade 7 ski lessons). Unfortunately wife has had the flu so couldn't go, but I still had the day off...

Well, the first disappointment is that the Seymour park crew still hasn't rebuilt the beginner jump line. Just 3 pathetic rollers. They had plenty of time of course to rebuild the Young Guns jumps for yet another competition.

So that's it. I'm done with Seymour. They obviously don't...
