First Day

Finally, finally, finally. Up the mountain for snowboarding today. My season is now underway. It's a month and a half to two months late, depending on how I count it, so I think this season will probably replace last season as the one I whine about constantly. Oh well. Even bad snowboarding is better than no snowboarding.

The day started off a little rushed. I hadn't had time to do any prep last night, so I had to do all the running around and gathering stuff this morning before leaving....

Today Seymour opened up Lodge Chair! I went up to get my season's pass made -- I 've given up on trying to herd the various cats that make up our family to all get up there at once. As of now, everyone's on their own. I've signed the waivers so the girls can get them any time, but I'm not going to try to kick them into play any more.

Anyway, Lodge Chair was open, it was snowing furiously, and it was PACKED! The parking lot was full, except for the one spot that I managed...

Finally, some progress

It's been snowing the last couple of days (although staying very close to rain/snow level) and Seymour has now opened the Mystery chair. We'll be going up this weekend, I think.

Triple8Sol's Official Gear List

This blog post is a place for me to keep a running list of gear I've had experience with recently. Helps me to keep track and also forms the foundation for my opinions.

Overwhelming majority of the gear is/was personally owned and the rest were long-term demos. Nothing from demo days are listed as I don't feel that provides a sufficient basis for review/comparison.

Yeah, it's Jan 1st, 2014. How's the season, you ask? What season, sez I. The last week or so, we've started to see public lamentations on the news about the crappy season. They've even admitted to That Which Must Not Be Said, that Whistler is having a bad one! Gasp! (Yeah, I'm not bitter).

Snow-forecast.com has predicted a lot of snow coming up in the next few days for close to a month now, but when the day rolls up, there's nada. Always in the future. And still, either wet or cold...
