Great times and a new toy!

Posted 01-28-2012 at 05:40 PM by NWBoarder (PNW Randomness and PooPow)

So I taught a class on Wednesday. The riding was.....FAN-FUCKING-TASTIC! My students loved it! They got to ride powder, and ride it they did. I was so proud of my little groms. They loved the powder, and it helped them with their confidence sooo much. See folks, powder snow IS good for you. By the end of the night, they were telling me how they "hope that it's like this next week too". All I could say was, "I hope so too".

After class it was my turn to go...

2012-01-27 Second-best day

Posted 01-28-2012 at 10:37 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

OK, Friday wasn't quite as sunny as Thursday, it didn't have quite as much snow, there was a little bit of fog, and so on. Still, it was a damned fine day. Continued to work on the Mushroom park features, continued to work on my 180s off that side hit on Chuck's, and continued to work the rollers in Mushroom. I still can't quite get 180s off the rollers, but that's just me being reluctant to commit. I've started the smallest bit of shifties on the flat box, and I'm probably just about ready to go...

2012-01-26 Best. Day. Ever.

Posted 01-26-2012 at 07:55 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was an unbelievably epic day! I've been kind of disappointed with the last couple of days -- it always seemed to be foggy or raining or windy or poor snow, or some combination that added up to crappy. Today was the opposite. 48 cm of new pow (not poo!), sunny skies (at least in the morning), no fog, and not particularly busy.

They had pulled the features out of Mushroom park earlier in the week and I was rolling my eyes and saying "it figures!". But today they put...

2012-01-22 Strange day

Posted 01-22-2012 at 10:34 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I took Friday and Saturday off. Friday I went to the dentist, so I took care of some other stuff. Saturday is chores day, and anyway it rained on the mountain for at least part of the day, so no loss.

Today was far better. It had snowed overnight, and continued to snow for the whole day. It was also, however, very windy today. There was a wind warning up for the lower mainland, and it certainly affected the mountain.

I had a lot of fun today, just hitting all different...

2012-01-19 Still getting better

Posted 01-19-2012 at 06:51 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Seymour day today. I started the day (and spent the first few hours) riding my Ride board with the 390's. It was pretty icy, and the Ride handles ice a little better. I tried doing the lead-leg switch with the Ride and discovered that yes, you can do that with a full-camber board. Once things warmed up enough, I switched to the Heritage.

I practiced alley-oops, hit the jump at the bottom of Mushroom, and hit the features coming out of Mushroom. I'm doing great with the features, able...
