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.

2012-04-08 Easter Weekend

Posted 04-07-2012 at 07:27 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First, some news. Seymour announced this week that they will be putting a high-speed quad in to replace the Mystery chair. That is cool, and has sparked some questions as to whether it'll be in the same track as the old one. I don't think they have time to lay new ground, so they'll just re-use the existing pylon locations. Anyway, wife and I will be going up to Seymour as often as possible this off-season to watch and take pictures. If we don't come back, the bugs got us. Seymour has also announced...

2012-04-01 No fooling on this day!

Getting kind of sad as I realize that the season is winding down. Not including this weekend, there are only 2 or 3 weekends left, depending on whether Seymour extends the season again. It's possible -- the amount of snow we've been getting has really built up the base. It pisses me off no end though that Dec through to partway through March, the base was marginal to mediocre. I can feel the difference on days like Sunday, when you feel like you can do a jump or a bombing run and not destroy yourself...

2012-03-25 Back on Seymour

Posted 03-26-2012 at 08:07 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First day back on Seymour after 4 days on Whistler. It was a beautiful warm day, no fresh snow but lots and lots of groomed accumulation. And when I say warm, I mean that by mid-morning I was riding in my under-armour with the jacket stuffed into the locker. That has a downside of course. By just before noon we were getting snowpoxy everywhere. I went up to Brockton for most of the afternoon where there was little or no sticky snow problem.

The time on Whistler has made a huge difference....

2012-03-11 Now we're getting somewhere

Posted 03-12-2012 at 07:06 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I started the day feeling kind of frustrated. I've been feeling a little stale the last couple of outings, like I'm just doing the same stuff over and over. I think I've been a little tentative with my riding because of my (admittedly minor) recent injuries.

So on the drive up, I tried to think if there was something I could try that's new. Well, one option is to do some basic technique work; so while I was waiting for the lifts to open, I spent some time at the top of Goldie, working...

2012-03-06 Not nearly as good as expected

Posted 03-06-2012 at 08:41 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It was a beautiful blue-sky sunny day. Cold, so no snow-melt to worry about. Lots of recent snowfall.

Unfortunately, with the teacher's strike it was as busy as a weekend. And with the rain the previous couple of days, the hardpack was very hard (although not icy, fortunately).

And for some reason, I was just off today. Stuff that I normally can pull off, I just couldn't do. I wiped out today on the flat box, on the rollers, on Pete's Run, on Alley-Oops, not to mention...
