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...

2012-01-18 First time on Cypress

Posted 01-18-2012 at 08:10 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I decided to go to Cypress today. I've got the time, it's midweek (the best time to go anywhere), so why not?

Got there just a bit after 9am opening. It was pretty empty. I guess the midweek thing works for Cypress too. I wonder if it works for Whistler? Anyway, it was damned cold. One of the ski patrollers told me I should protect my face. Fortunately I had a mask in my pocket so I just whipped it out and put it on.

So, Cypress? Meh. It's bigger, all right. A little...

2012-01-16 A better day

Posted 01-16-2012 at 06:56 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was pretty great. First though, they opened at 9:30 and not a 9:00. I think I did that once before. Oh well, stand around for 20 minutes. But I was first on the lift and got first tracks on Mystery.

The day was snowing, sunny, foggy (briefly), sunny, and snowy again by the time I left at 2pm. There had been a couple of inches of snow overnight, so we had some good stuff to start with. And today, I hit everything. I've really finally got all my skillz back, and more importantly...

2012-01-15 Nice day

Posted 01-15-2012 at 10:54 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I was up on the mountain at 9am sharp this morning, and quite surprised to find myself parking well back from my usual spot. Unfortunately Seymour was hosting a slopestyle competition today, and everyone on the planet seemingly was there. By 10am the lineups were worse than they normally are at 11:30, and it never let up. Even Lodge chair had lineups that actually went up the slope.

BUT Mushroom had 3 boxes - a wide box, a flat box, and a flat-down box -- and all ride-ons. Additionally,...

Could it be?

Am I actually going to get a powder day? OMG, I think I will! Seriously though, it's been a crazy long wait full of icy, firm groomers and no off-piste riding at all. The best part is, if it keeps the way it looks like it should, then I'll get to teach my students how to ride some pow too! And speaking of teaching, turns out, I love it! I have 4 kids in my class and they all are beginners, but not total noobs. It's great. They are so stoked, even on the ice we had to ride last week. It's...
