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.

Up the Mountain 12-5-2010

Posted 12-07-2010 at 12:17 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

This post is for two days of boarding Ė Sunday 12/5 and Monday 12/6. I booked Monday off again, for another 3-day weekend. On Sunday I went up using transit, with the family joining me later. Transit takes about 2.5 hours total, including walking to the bus stop. So itís not very efficient. Or cheap. Itís $8 each way to go between Lonsdale Quay and Seymour. I have a monthly transit pass so that part is effectively free.

Sunday was a beautiful blue-sky day. It would have been perfect...

Day One

Posted 11-29-2010 at 11:04 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was my first day of snowboarding on Seymour. It was great! Going during the week is definitely recommended. I don't think I had to wait for more than two chairs the whole day.

And the snow! It never stopped snowing, from opening until closing. And this isn't crushed and re-crushed frozen rain, or barely frozen snow-cones. Real, actual snow. I discussed snow-depth with one of the lifties, and we agreed that there was actually more snow base last year at this time. But from the...

The wife and I went up to Seymour today to check out the situation. And the situation is good. The snow is already better (and possibly deeper) than it was for most of last season. We snowshoed around Chucks Place, Mushroom, and halfway up Mystery. There were tons of skiers and boarders, and twice as many snowshoers. The grooming equipment was going gangbusters trying to fill in the creeks and dips. It's still pretty rough, but there's supposed to be some big dumps this week, so here's hoping......

I went up the mountain today to see what's what. And woohoo, there's snow! About 3-4 inches at parking lot level, 6 inches or so by Northlands Park level. It was snowing while I was there, as well. There's snow all the way down Chuck's Place, although not much of course. Looking good!

My wife and I went up Seymour today with Petey the insane mutt. It was cold, which is probably why we didn't get eaten alive by bugs. In fact, it was snowing lightly once we were above the parking lot. And there was snow a couple of inches deep at the first flat spot on the Manning Run (where Joel's Flight ends and Velvet Gully starts). Petey ran around insanely (no surprise) doing donuts and spinouts. And he's got four-wheel drive!

Anyway, it's nice to see the white stuff on the...
