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.

Snow?

Posted Today at 10:11 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Someone just told me that Whistler got a dusting of snow at peak. I went and checked snow-forecast.com, and they were predicting 1 cm on Cypress at peak as well. I doubt it actually happened, but the fact that it's within the realm of possibility is just huge!

Maybe we'll have a season? People are touting the Farmer's Almanac as predicting a snowy winter. I've never set much stock by that publication, but I'm prepared to become a fan.

I've given up on finding a virgin...

Coming up on mid-year

Posted 06-17-2015 at 10:09 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Yes, we're coming up on the longest day of the year. I've said before that I consider it the unofficial "mid-point" of the off-season. If I had to pick a word to describe my feelings about that, it would be "ennui." Great word, that. I've never had a reason to use it before.

I look up at the North Shore mountains and there is not one lick, not one speck of white on any of them, anywhere. Not even on the Lions. Yeesh.

So this'll be the make-or-break...

Done

Well, that's it. Cypress has come out and admitted on their web page that the season is done. Previously, they were still doing the "it can still happen" thing. Pfft. As if.

Anyway, they've published their incentive for customers to re-up, and surprisingly, it's a good offer. For existing passholders, you can buy the same pass for next year at 80% off. Yeah, you heard me. That works out to $119 for a new GOLD pass for me for next year. I know I've been saying I wasn't going...

Crap continues

Posted 01-12-2015 at 10:55 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I figure I should post something just so the four people who are following my blog don't think I died.

Cypress continues to suck. Not that it's Cypress' fault, they're all sucking. They've now stopped opening the Lions chair, so other than the bunny slope, they're down to one mountain. They haven't even been able to make snow lately, as the freezing level has been above the peak.

The forecast is hinting at the possibility of snow by about Thursday of this...

Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaap!

Posted 12-30-2014 at 01:11 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First snowboarding of the season today. woo hoo. What a stinking, smoking pile of crap. I did one run and left. Basically, you have the following choices:

1. Corduroy.

That is all.

They didn't even open Lions chair, despite saying they were going to.

I don't know if I'm getting old, or impatient, or both, but I've got better things to do with my day than put up with crap conditions. I'll go back once they get some real snowfall....
