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.

Best park day ever

Posted 02-12-2014 at 06:55 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went Seymour today. I wanted another chance at the Mushroom jumps, and the mountain didn't disappoint. There was some new snow, albeit pretty mushy stuff. But hey, a soft landing is a soft landing -- and very handy as it turned out . I took the time to scope out the entire park, and today there was a ride-on rail. Not sure if I just missed it last time or if it's been added since. Either way, it was exactly what I'd been asking for last season. Ride-on, low to the snow, not too steep. So...

I got up sometime in the middle of the night last night and checked outside. Sure enough, snow on the ground! It had turned to rain and melted the snow by morning, but really I don't give a crap whether we get snow at city level. The important thing is that the mountains are getting snow.

I drove up to Seymour today. I guess I could have technically gone to Cypress as this isn't a weekend, but I wanted to see what they'd done with Mushroom. Answer: not a bunch. They put a second jump...

Way, way better...

Went to Cypress again today. I had installed the new Flow NX2-ATs on the Proto, so I was looking forward to trying out the new setup.

For some reason today, most of the snow guns were idle. Damn, it's not like they'd made so much snow that they could just sit back. But it occurred to me later that with the predicted upcoming snowfall, they might not feel the need to keep making it. Oh, did I forget to mention? Yeah, most of next week predicting heavy snow. Actually, it was snowing...

OK, it's getting a little better

I went to Cypress again today. With the weather being so cold generally, Cypress has been running their snowguns for a couple of days. And it is making a difference! There was actual ersatz snow on the runs instead of ersatz crushed ice scrapings. MUCH more better! Seriously, man-made isn't as good as the natural stuff, but it's way better than the alternatives we've been stuck with for most of this season.

So I spent most of the morning going down the greens and blues, practicing...

This isn't getting better

Meaning the snow, of course. Seymour had about 14cm of new snow late this week, and the only real result that I could see is that the sticks and stones are buried a bit better. Sure as hell there wasn't anything you could carve in.

I took up both boards today -- the Heritage and the new Proto. I wanted to have the Heritage there in case things went bad with the Proto, and to be honest I almost did the swap early on. It really wasn't an auspicious start, but I eventually realized that...
