2012-01-15 Nice day

Posted 01-15-2012 at 09:54 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...

2012-01-13 Finally!!!

Well, there's been a lot to write about since last Sunday! First, I'm now on 2 weeks vacation. About last Monday or so, the snow forecasts started to look very very hopeful. I decided to take a chance and book my 2 weeks in order to take advantage of it if the snow materialized. And last night Ullr started to deliver! We went to Seymour for our regular Friday Night session. About halfway through the evening, it started to snow. There were a couple of false starts, but once it got going, it was great!...

Went up the mountain Sunday morning. Took one look, went home. shit.

I'm writing this on Wednesday, and snow-forecast is actually starting to show something good coming up. Maybe we'll get winter soon?

2012-01-06 A little night riding

Posted 01-08-2012 at 09:28 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up the mountain with the family for a couple of hours of night riding on Friday night. I wasn't expecting much, because I don't generally care much for going up in the evening, but it was definitely better than expected. First, wife and daughter are both really stoked by the magic carpet. Wife has stated that she's prepared to go up every Friday night. Well, ok then!

I didn't really do a lot in terms of pushing myself. However, over the course of the evening I did one absolutely...
