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...

Some night riding

Posted 01-19-2013 at 07:43 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I stayed home during the day yesterday to get stuff done, picked up my daughter, then headed up to Seymour for some night riding. It was basically the same conditions as the last couple of days -- around freezing, hardpack with a thin covering of softer stuff. No fog this time around, which was nice.

I did a couple of runs off Mystery, including one on Pete's before they closed it for the evening. But let's face it, when the snow's like that it's just basic downhilling. Not very engaging....

Warming up

Posted 01-16-2013 at 11:30 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

The inversion is theoretically settled in over us now. Temps were up a little today, but it's not like armageddon. The only real difference is that it was sunny for most of the day on Mystery, while foggy on Lodge. The snow was somewhat softer, although the tree run through Pete's was still pretty heinous.

Because of the fog issue, I spent most of today on the top half. This was fine though, as I took the opportunity to try some of the different paths through Friendly Nut House. Didn't...

More of the same

Posted 01-15-2013 at 08:19 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was like yesterday, only less so. Less fog, less cold, less hard. All good news

Today's menu consisted of more of the same. Spent almost the entire day on Chuck's and Mushroom, practicing. Gotta say, practice is a great invention.

Butters: frontside tail butters, nailed. Actually doing them better than I was last year. Time to start the backsides.

180s: pretty much where I was last year. Cab 180s, not quite yet. Still pretty shakey. I'm aiming...
