2012-11-01 God DAMN it!

Posted 11-01-2012 at 04:40 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

For the last week or so, it's been nothing but pounding, driving rain and warm temps. Freezing level consistently between 2000-3000 meters. There's no chance that there's any snow left on any of the locals at this point! Snow-forecast is showing a faint hint of the freezing level maybe dropping to something sane by end of next week, but it's still only a hint. Certainly this has got to be a worst-case scenario. If we can recover from this and have a good opening on Seymour before Dec 1st, I'll just...

Goals for this season

Posted 10-28-2012 at 05:03 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It's time to "officially" identify my goals for this season. They are:

- Stop being so cautious
- learn to hit the northlands jumps properly and dependably, without knuckling every other time.
- Do street-style boxes
- do rails
- Get 180's-at-will nailed
- Learn 360s on small jumps
- Do Devil's Drop, and all other runs on Seymour comfortably
- Ground tricks.
- Become completely comfortable with switch.
- Perfect...

No Snow...

Posted 10-28-2012 at 02:28 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

After a couple of epic days of snowfall, the freezing level bumped itself up to 2000m and has been hanging there for days. Add torrential rain the last 24 hours and i doubt there's anything left.

I think something very similar happened the previous two years as well. I guess the first snowfall of the year is really meaningless except maybe psychologically.

In other news, the Mystery chair is officially complete, which is good news.

Snow!

Posted 10-21-2012 at 11:09 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

So the predictions were right! Snowed yesterday (20th) on Seymour. Someone posted a pic of the Mystery loading station (the new one!) covered in a thin film of snow. And this morning the Grouse website reports -3 and lightly snowing. The snow-forecast.com website is showing the freezing level staying around 1000m for the next 6 days. Despite my attempts at cynicism, I'm feeling some emotional investment. Please, please don't break my heart!

We went to North Shore Ski & Board...
