100-Day Point

We hit the 100-day point on Thursday -- 100 days until snowboarding season, based on Dec 1st opening. That's always a milestone for me, even more than summer solstice. From here on, my whiteboard counter at work only has 2 digits.

It's also getting close to the time that the Boardroom will start stocking the 2013-14 gear. I'm going to be in there as early as possible, picking up the new Proto HD. I haven't quite decided whether or not I'll buy some new bindings for it. I have...

Mid-off-season update

Posted 06-16-2013 at 12:51 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Well, not really "mid". I think there's about 170 days left as of today, but we're approaching the longest day of the year which is kind of a symbolic milestone.

We've finished the move to the new digs (phew!) although we're nowhere near done unpacking. I hadn't realized how much shit we had in the crawlspace until I had to hump it out to the moving truck. Now it's all stacked in the garage while the car sits parked on the street. Yeesh!

I'm certainly going...

Season is now over

This weekend marks the actual end of the season on Seymour. Not that there was a lot of snow left the last month or so, but there are always the diehards who will ride on one inch of snow. I haven't gone up at all in April since the 1st. The house sale and prepping for moving is taking too much attention, and anyway the conditions haven't been condusive to anything much.

I've been thinking about goals for next year, but I keep coming back to my central issue, which is that I've been...

End of Season Redux

Well, this year sucked. OK, I'll admit, snowboarding is like sex -- even when it's disappointing it's still pretty damned good. But still -- this year sucked. We had the late start. Then we had a fantastic December which made it look like the rest of the season would be a great one. Unfortunately, most of the snowfall for the entire season happened in December. Our usual major March dumps just never materialized. I never thought I'd actually live to say this, but I think the 09/10 season was better!...

Season is over

Posted 04-07-2013 at 04:36 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Even though Seymour is open until the 28th, I'd have to say the season is effectively over. I went up the mountain yesterday, mostly because they had actually predicted snow. Well, it was snowing when I got there, but it soon started turning to rain. On top of that the snow was so slow that on one occasion I actually couldn't get to the bottom of the lift on Mystery. I actually stalled on the last shallow section of the run. On a couple of occasions I almost went over the handlebars in zero inches...
