Crap continues

Posted 01-12-2015 at 11:55 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!

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....

No Snow

It's Dec 15th, and I'm still waiting for my first day on the mountain. We've just finished yet another series of rainstorms that have washed the snow away -- what snow there was...

I looked up on Saturday at the Cut on Grouse, and it was brown, brown, brown. Cypress has been closed as often as they've been open.

On the slightly not-as-negative side, there's a forecast of snow later this week. For whatever that's worth.

Sigh. Two weeks vacation coming...

Snow

It snowed last night. Just a couple of cm at street level, but Cypress is reporting 10 cm. The weather continues cold for several more days, so the snowmakers can do a job. It's possible that next weekend might just have enough snow for a session.

Hmmph

It's been nine days since opening -- two weekends -- and so far, I am zero days on mountain. There's been some more snowmaking effort, but no natural stuff at all. Instead, we're alternating cold & dry with warm & torrential. Not kidding, the next three days this week are solid "Heavy Rain". This is followed by a dip in the freezing level to street level, accompanied by clear skies and NO precip whatsoever. Hello, last year.

Actually, this is worse than last year....
