snow-forecast.com is showing a snow prediction for Seymour on the 15th. Just at the top, and just 1cm, but woo-hoo!

A few days ago the predicted freezing level was up around 3500m. It's dropped considerably since then, and we're within spitting distance of 1000m this weekend. Looks like it's finally happening.

2011-10-01 Season approaching

We went up Seymour last weekend, and we're hoping to go up again tomorrow. Basement dog had her first exposure to a lake (Mystery). Jumped right in and started swimming around.

It was a beautiful blue-sky day, not too warm, not many bugs. Didn't really generate a lot of hope for an early snowfall, though . On the other hand, the forecast right now on Snow-forecast.com shows the freezing level dropping consistently below 2000m. I'm going to keep a close watch on things this year....

What Size GNU Riders Choice Pickle Should I Get

Posted 09-22-2011 at 02:04 PM by SurfingColorado

I want to purchase the GNU 2012 Riders Choice Pickle but can't decide between the 151.5 or the 154.5.

I'm 5'-8" and weigh 140#. I used to like riding longer boards like 158's because I like to smooth cruise with long turns, but found the Burton Custom 156 to be my favorite board size because it was more all mountain: fun in the park, fun on the grooms.

Last year I bought my first reverse camber board and loved it. It was the GNU 2010 Park Pickle 153. It's...

2011-09-17 Up the mountain again

Posted 09-18-2011 at 11:52 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

We went up Seymour yesterday - myself, wife, and Lucy the black tornado. Or as I'm starting to think of her, Basement Dog.

It was foggy and wet, and surprisingly cold. Lucy was all over the place, essentially swimming through the bushes -- and came out wet enough to give that metaphor teeth. We had mostly gone up to see the new magic carpet on Goldie, but we were disappointed to find that the Seymour announcement was in advance of reality. Which is a polite way of saying they aren't...

2011-09-13 Checking in

As of today, it's 79 days until snowboarding season. Figure I should check in with a status report.

Skateboarding
It's coming along, and I'm having fun. As I said to slyder though, slow and steady keeps donutz in one piece. I've been practicing doing stationary kick-turns, trying to get dependable 180's. I can do them sometimes. It's just a balance thing. More practice required. I'm also pushing myself around reasonably well. My biggest issue there is that I sometimes move...
