2012-05-06 Thoughts for next season

Posted 05-06-2012 at 11:26 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

OK, I've had a few days to get over my snit about the end of a lousy season. Been doing some thinking, and now it's time to get my thoughts for next season down on, uh, paper.

First, as I mentioned in a previous post, I have to just go for it a lot more. Can't continue to be overcautious about trying things. So, with that in mind, here's what I want to accomplish next season.

1) Spend more time exploring and less time bombing. This especially applies to finding those...

Great Beauties v K2 Turbo Dream

Posted 04-30-2012 at 02:47 PM by brincau

Been riding 10 years or so and would like to retire my old camber board and see what else is out there. A lot of my friends ride the K2 Turbo and rate it well but I would like to try something different. Perhaps Yes Great Beauties?? I rarely hit the park nowadays, but love smashing all mountain terains...thoughts??

2012-04-15 And that's a wrap...

... to a crappy season, frankly. I know March is supposed to have had a record amount of snowfall, but it wasn't enough to make up for the previous 3 months. The bottom of Lodge never filled up to the point where they could take down the ropes. Even last season it eventually filled up.

I went up this morning at 9am for the final day, and ended up leaving at 11am. It was ice crust where the cats hadn't run, and crushed ice where they had. Add fog and occasional rain, and you've got...

2012-04-08 Woot!

Wife and I registered for private lessons today. With discounts and coupons and other stuff, we both got lessons for total $118 including taxes. Amazing!

On my lesson, we worked mainly on handling steeps. I learned a lot just by following the instructor the first time. Turns out my C turns are too open and too long. He also pointed out to me that A) I'm slightly open at the shoulders on my toeside turns, and B) I haven't been using flexion and extension. Once I started doing those...

2012-04-08 Easter Weekend

Posted 04-07-2012 at 07:27 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First, some news. Seymour announced this week that they will be putting a high-speed quad in to replace the Mystery chair. That is cool, and has sparked some questions as to whether it'll be in the same track as the old one. I don't think they have time to lay new ground, so they'll just re-use the existing pylon locations. Anyway, wife and I will be going up to Seymour as often as possible this off-season to watch and take pictures. If we don't come back, the bugs got us. Seymour has also announced...
