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.

2011-02-07 More of the same

Posted 02-09-2011 at 10:07 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up Seymour on Monday. It was essentially a repeat of Saturday. Same blue sky (although clouds rolled in occasionally and it did try to snow), same snowcrete base, although maybe even harder than on Saturday. Except being a Monday, it was not busy. Thatís always good.

I spent pretty much the whole day working on the jump at the top of Northlands. I also hit the roller in the transition from Manning to Northlands, which turns out to be a pretty nice little practice jump for trying...

2011-02-05 was a great day

This was a great day, but also a very odd day. To start with, I took transit again to get to the mountain. This time I made it all the way to Parkgate before things tanked. The mountain shuttle was supposed to pick us up at 8:35. By 8:55, I phoned customer service to find out wtf. Turns out they'd rerouted the bus to Lonsdale to pick up employees early, probably because of the competitions.

And this weekend is a busy one for competitions. Two days of downhill and freestyle. Interestingly,...

2011-01-30 Sunny days

Posted 01-31-2011 at 10:40 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went snowboarding on Sunday. Decided to take it easy because of the recent stomach flu, so I had no intention of trying anything new or particularly challenging.

The first surprise I got was when i arrived, at 8:20. The parking lot was packed! Turns out the Nancy Greene ski competition was on that day, as well as "Family Day" on Seymour. Oy! The only upside is that most of the occupants of those cars were not skiers or boarders, and most of the rest were competing on the...

2011-01-27 Ups and Downs

Posted 01-28-2011 at 02:01 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

What a weird day.

First, I decided to try getting to Seymour using Skytrain and the 028 bus. Of couse, skytrain died as soon as I got on board. The downage lasted just long enough to guarantee that I would miss my connections. So, I went the seabus route and took the Seymour shuttle from Lonsdale. Got there about 10:30, which wasn't too bad. It was pretty empty all day. I think I might have waited 2 minutes on the Lodge chair at one point, but that was the worst.

It...

I did manage to get to Seymour last night. It was a cruddy night, with a constant light rain. I did one run down Mystery and that was enough of that. Went to the bunny slope to do techniques.

Frontside tailpress butter spins are coming along, although as Nev says in the vid, don't expect to be the king at it overnight. I tried a backside spin once, but it didn't go well. No biggie, just need to spend time at it.

Also continued to work on ollies while moving. It's interesting...
