What a crap day!

Posted 02-16-2014 at 03:47 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

This is the last day of my vacation, so I guess it's inevitable that it's going to be a big stinking pile of crap.

First, as usual the snow predictions have evaporated. Snow-forecast.com was showing heavy snow last night and this morning. When I got there though I discovered an inch of new over top of icy crust. Woop dee doo. Managed to get first chair though, so I decided to head straight down Unicorn. Well, not only was I fighting the icy crust all the way down (scritch...

Ugly snow, but still...

It was a coin flip, but I decided to go up to Seymour again today. I've been having so much fun with Mushroom, I figured why not once more. Temps were above freezing, so it's not like Cypress was going to be running the guns or anything.

It had snowed a fair bit in the last 24 hours, but given the temps, it should be no surprise that the stuff was very wet and very slow. Made the jumps difficult as I just couldn't get the speed. Forcing the jump by trying to pop huge just results...

Even better park day

There's been some new snow over the last 24 hours, so things were a little softer today. Also less wet, which is even better. I did one run down Mystery but the fog was so thick I simply couldn't see where I was going. So other than a couple of runs down Chucks, I spent the entire day in Mushroom. I decided to alternate my runs, so I was doing a jump run, a rail run, and a switch-practice run, then repeat. Kept it more interesting, and allowed me to spread out the wear and tear on different muscles....

Best park day ever

Posted 02-12-2014 at 06:55 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went Seymour today. I wanted another chance at the Mushroom jumps, and the mountain didn't disappoint. There was some new snow, albeit pretty mushy stuff. But hey, a soft landing is a soft landing -- and very handy as it turned out . I took the time to scope out the entire park, and today there was a ride-on rail. Not sure if I just missed it last time or if it's been added since. Either way, it was exactly what I'd been asking for last season. Ride-on, low to the snow, not too steep. So...

I got up sometime in the middle of the night last night and checked outside. Sure enough, snow on the ground! It had turned to rain and melted the snow by morning, but really I don't give a crap whether we get snow at city level. The important thing is that the mountains are getting snow.

I drove up to Seymour today. I guess I could have technically gone to Cypress as this isn't a weekend, but I wanted to see what they'd done with Mushroom. Answer: not a bunch. They put a second jump...
