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.

Cypress Day

Yesterday (Saturday), I went to Cypress. For a birthday present, I'm being "allowed" to go boarding both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. OK, well, am I going to argue? I was actually going to Seymour but decided halfway there to go to Cypress. Couple of good reasons.. 1, there's some kind of snowball-fight contest on Seymour on Saturday. May or may not affect the lift lines, but it'll certainly affect parking and traffic. 2, since it's now March, my Cypress silver pass is now valid on...

After a week of snow

Posted 02-22-2014 at 05:11 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

As noted in my last entry, it started snowing the moment my vacation was over. And it's been snowing most of the week. They've gotten about a meter of snow this week. I'm pissed about missing it by a week, but I'm happy that there's snow now.

So I woke up this morning early to get ready for the mountain, looked outside, and it was snowing! In fact as I write this, it's still snowing, and it's accumulating in the back yard.

Anyway, I headed up early because of the snow...

What a crap day!

Posted 02-16-2014 at 03:47 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

This is the last day of my vacation, so I guess it's inevitable that it's going to be a big stinking pile of crap.

First, as usual the snow predictions have evaporated. Snow-forecast.com was showing heavy snow last night and this morning. When I got there though I discovered an inch of new over top of icy crust. Woop dee doo. Managed to get first chair though, so I decided to head straight down Unicorn. Well, not only was I fighting the icy crust all the way down (scritch...

Ugly snow, but still...

It was a coin flip, but I decided to go up to Seymour again today. I've been having so much fun with Mushroom, I figured why not once more. Temps were above freezing, so it's not like Cypress was going to be running the guns or anything.

It had snowed a fair bit in the last 24 hours, but given the temps, it should be no surprise that the stuff was very wet and very slow. Made the jumps difficult as I just couldn't get the speed. Forcing the jump by trying to pop huge just results...

Even better park day

There's been some new snow over the last 24 hours, so things were a little softer today. Also less wet, which is even better. I did one run down Mystery but the fog was so thick I simply couldn't see where I was going. So other than a couple of runs down Chucks, I spent the entire day in Mushroom. I decided to alternate my runs, so I was doing a jump run, a rail run, and a switch-practice run, then repeat. Kept it more interesting, and allowed me to spread out the wear and tear on different muscles....
