All over the mountain

Posted 01-25-2013 at 10:33 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was Seymour day with poutanen. Sure could have picked a better snow day -- it snowed the last couple of days, but the temps have been fluctuating and today we had a thin crust over really wet heavy poo. Made for some weird riding. My normal riding technique would just bury the nose edge-in all the time. Poutanen told me to go more tail-heavy, but I just couldn't! Too much indoctrination.

Anyway, we hit most of the runs on the mountain at least once, then concentrated...

Meh

Went to Seymour today. It's nice to have new snow, finally. We also had fog first thing in the morning, so thick that I couldn't see the lift chair ahead of me. Fortunately it cleared up mid-morning. Also snowed all morning, so hopefully it'll build up for tomorrow.

I didn't have a long or hard day today, just cruised around and tried different things. I did the steep off compressor a couple of times -- you know the snow's good when you can do that one without just sliding all the...

Best. Day. Ever.

Probably overusing that title, but I may have to retire it now. I went up to Cypress today with poutanen, timmytard, and kung-pow. It was wet snow verging on rain at the beginning of the day, but changed to proper snow and stayed like that (and kept snowing) all day. Just the same, by the end of the day I was soaked through and through -- gloves, jacket, pants, even the inside of my helmet.

TT knows Cypress quite well, so right away I was getting a better experience than my...

Getting tired of the lack of new snow...

Today was more of the same. This time I brought my hoodie and I wore that for the entire day. WAY too warm for a snowboard jacket, even with every zipper open.

The big difference between today and yesterday is the crowds. That's a good news/bad news thing though. The good news is I didn't have to wait for lifts today. The bad news is that without all those people grinding away at the hardpack, we didn't get the several-inches-deep crush -- which isn't as good as real snow, but is...

Pretty nice day

I think today was the first day that the temp inversion really kicked in for Seymour. As I went up the Mystery chair for my first run of the day, I could swear that the air was getting warmer as we went up!

The snow started out a bit scritchy, but by midmorning it was getting that soft spring-snow feel, with a 4-6" thick layer of ground-up snow on top. Some areas, like Pete's tree run, never softened up, but most of the mountain turned out real fine.

Anyway, since...
