2011-12-04 Second day, meh.

Posted 12-04-2011 at 07:57 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up Seymour for what was supposed to be a full day of boarding. I took the car, so I was able to bring up both boards. I had swapped around my bindings the night before, so I have the NXTs on the NS and the Romes on the Ride.

Anyway, there's not a lot of snow, so there aren't a lot of runs open. And even the ones that are open have roped-off sections everywhere. There were virtually no side-hits worthy of the name.

The parks are actually looking quite interesting....

Bluebird for Days....

Posted 12-04-2011 at 01:54 PM by NWBoarder (PNW Randomness and PooPow)

And I still haven't been able to get out and get some. I'm making it change this week though. Thursday will be my mountain day. No matter what. The goddamn world could be ending, and I'll be out shredding. Period. Fuck, this is turning into another angry rant, and that's not my style, so I gotta lighten it up. My kid turns 7 this week, and that makes me happy. Seven was a good age for me and I think it will be for her too.

I still drool daily over all the resort updates...

2011-11-27 First runs

Posted 11-27-2011 at 07:30 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

First runs of the season today. Only Manning, Northlands, and Goldie were open so it wasn't the most inspiring day. On the other hand the snow wasn't hard. There were bare patches everywhere, and you can tell the rocks aren't too far below the surface.

I brought both of my boards up. The Heritage has the 390s on, and the Havoc has the Flows. I started the day riding the Havoc, which was very interesting. There's a definite difference between a camber board and a rocker. I felt like...

2011-11-26 Goals for the season

Posted 11-26-2011 at 05:54 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I did this back in May, but now that the season is starting it's time to come up with a focused list.

In general, by the end of the year I want to be able to:

- Hit moderate jumps (20-30 feet) at will.
- Do 180's and 360's of jumps
- Do some ground tricks, such as 180's, pretzels, butters, maybe even an mfm butter.
- Finish off stuff from last year, such as switch riding, and ollies and nollies
- work a lot more with moguls and rough terrain....

2011-11-26 Opening weekend

Posted 11-26-2011 at 05:40 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

So, "days until snowboarding season" is now a negative number. Seymour opened yesterday, with the Mystery chair only. Today a pineapple express is blowing in and raining all over everything. Life sucks.

OK, possibly that's a teeny bit melodramatic, but it isn't the most auspicious opening weekend ever. I'm going up tomorrow (Sunday), but not early. It's supposed to start the day raining and I don't want that to be my first experience of the season. I'll go up maybe 10-11...
