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.
Seymour Mountain day at Seymour

2011-04-10 Yet another fantastic day

Posted 04-10-2011 at 10:02 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I arrived at the mountain at opening time, as usual (With the April hours, that's 9am-5pm btw). Like last Monday and Tuesday, it was snowing like stink, there was a layer of fresh powder, and there was no-one on the mountain. Dang. What a hell.

I basically just ran all over the mountain. Did Nutcracker and Compressor again, with better control this time. Had a great time. Other than some switch practice in the afternoon, not much technique work. They continue to "retire"...

2011-04-05 Best Day EVER?

Posted 04-05-2011 at 09:13 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Yeah, if today wasn't the best day of the season, it's certainly in the medals. Went up the mountain early, and I was there when they opened the Mystery chair. I was also the only person there when they opened it. I actually got first tracks and third or fourth tracks on Northlands. For the whole friggin' day, I think I had to wait once to get on the lift, and that was for 1 chair. It snowed for most of the day, and this plus the 31 cm overnight on top of the 54 cm yesterday. It was DEEP!

2011-04-04 Major dump on Seymour

Posted 04-04-2011 at 08:39 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

"Season's winding down". Hah! Yesterday I said that, and today we got over a half-meter of snow on Seymour. Took everyone by surprise, too. The weather web pages were predicting a couple of cm over the course of the day. Uh huh.

One bit of bad news. Seymour has set their "end of season" hours, and they aren't great. Weekdays are 11am-8pm. Bleah. Weekends are 9am-5pm. Not much better.

Anyway, great day on the mountain. I buried my tip a number of...

2011-04-03 Switch riding day

Posted 04-03-2011 at 11:21 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today on Seymour, the theme was fog. Not the worst day ever, but bad enough. Having been through this a few times, I didn't even try to get creative with the upper runs. I tried the jump on Northlands once, just to remind myself how much I don't like jumping when I can't see the landing.

So, the rest of the day was spent on Chucks, practicing switch riding. And I spent a lot of time practicing switching direction as well. I've started practicing the technique from the vimeo vid where...

2011-03-20 Fantastic!

Sunday was one of the best days this season. Totally unexpected, since this weekend starts spring break, and I expected it to be a madhouse. I guess everyone else did too and stayed away, because it was actually fairly dead for a weekend.

Anyway, it was a blue sky day, totally excellent visibility, warm (just above freezing), new snow from the day before that had been groomed but was still soft, lots of ungroomed snow still on the sides. And the park crew had finally finished their...
