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.

Argh!

Just a quick update. There has been almost constant rain since the little bit of snow on the 23rd. There is a series of tropical storms blowing in, one after the other, bringing 2K and 3K freezing levels. If the amount of rain we've been getting was falling as snow, we'd be buried. But no such luck.

Nov 3rd, mountains still all green. No indication of snow through the 8th at least. A Nov 15th opening is looking kinda unlikely...

Snow?

Posted 10-21-2014 at 10:19 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today, for the first time this year, snow-forecast.com is showing snow on the chart. It's barely there, just 1 cm and mixed with rain, but there you go. It's on Sunday the 26th. More or less on schedule.

It's been a very wet couple of weeks, so we can hope that this isn't going to be just like last year.

Weather report

Posted 09-26-2014 at 10:20 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I've been watching the snow-forecast website lately -- part of my early-fall obsessing, I guess. The freezing level was pretty consistently high in Aug and early Sept, but the last week or so it's started to swing up and down between about 2K and 4K. I wonder if that's a normal thing when the weather starts to change.

At street level, it's not all that much different. A little cooler, and we've had some rainstorms, but it's not like it's time to put away the air conditioner yet....

Ruminations and stuff

Posted 09-15-2014 at 12:05 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

... And speaking of obsessive checking, the freezing level is staying up around 4000m. It dips occasionally, but always returns. Of course, this is still mid-September, and this is the earliest I think I've ever started obsessing.

I've bought my Cypress pass, as mentioned. I went and got my pic done this weekend. That's so much easier than Seymour -- the Cypress office is open 7 days a week starting in September, and you just go in with your receipt and done.

My workouts...

Cypress!

Posted 09-09-2014 at 11:11 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I bought my season's pass yesterday. Cypress. I feel strangely dirty, as if I'm cheating on Seymour. But that's silly, we've been separated for a while now.

Seriously, it is kind of an end of an era for me. Same kind of feeling as when I got rid of my first snowboard. But with the pass purchase (G8 full pass, $540+GST using TT's corporate discount), I'm now on serious pre-season stoke. Now comes the constant obsessive checking of the freezing level and weather forecast on snow-forecast.com...
