Great Day on Cypress

Cypress day yesterday. They had announced on the website that they were rebuilding Stomping Ground, so I was looking forward to something new. The reality wasn't up to last year's setup, but then last year they had actual snowfall. So I guess I can cut them a break.

Still, there were some nice improvements. They put a tabletop/pyramid hybrid thingy at the top of the park. That wasn't actually a terrific idea as you had to start outside the park in order to get up enough speed. So...

Blech!

I went to Cypress yesterday (Saturday). I did so with mixed feelings, given the weather report on snow-forecast.com . Still, I was hoping it wouldn't be bad, and/or it would improve.

Wowzers, could I be more wrong? It was cage-match rain combined with high winds (wouldn't be surprised if they closed some chairs at some point). The black runs off the Raven Ridge chair were all closed, and the bottom jump in Stomping Ground was closed. I did a single jump run and gave it up. The landing...

Seymour Day

Seymour today. After Cypress yesterday, it was a good chance to compare the two "close up".

This was my first opportunity to get a look at the "new improved" Mushroom park. Frankly, I liked the old one better. They've basically just left the two rollers in "old" Mushroom, and put all the features in the transition from Goldie to Lodge. So of course any use of the park requires taking the Lodge chair up, with all the lineups and slowness and constant stoppages....

Cypress Day

Yesterday (Saturday), I went to Cypress. For a birthday present, I'm being "allowed" to go boarding both Saturday and Sunday this weekend. OK, well, am I going to argue? I was actually going to Seymour but decided halfway there to go to Cypress. Couple of good reasons.. 1, there's some kind of snowball-fight contest on Seymour on Saturday. May or may not affect the lift lines, but it'll certainly affect parking and traffic. 2, since it's now March, my Cypress silver pass is now valid on...

After a week of snow

Posted 02-22-2014 at 05:11 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

As noted in my last entry, it started snowing the moment my vacation was over. And it's been snowing most of the week. They've gotten about a meter of snow this week. I'm pissed about missing it by a week, but I'm happy that there's snow now.

So I woke up this morning early to get ready for the mountain, looked outside, and it was snowing! In fact as I write this, it's still snowing, and it's accumulating in the back yard.

Anyway, I headed up early because of the snow...
