2011-10-26 First Snow!

Posted 10-27-2011 at 09:21 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It finally snowed on Seymour! And interestingly, on the same date as last year -- October 26. As I went to work this morning (on the 27th), the mountains were all white about halfway down. It was gone by this afternoon of course, but that's to be expected for the first fall. is looking pretty good -- freezing level is bouncing around but staying below 2000m.

So, the sweet spot is the last week of October.

2011-10-23 Finally got a Contour!

Posted 10-23-2011 at 08:07 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Bought a Contour Roam today. It's the bottom-end contour, but for the price I couldn't walk away. Future shop had one on the shelf for $229, but Launch Helmetcams in North Van was selling them for $199 including an 8GB memcard. Future shop matched. Plus I had a $60 gift certificate that I'd never used, so $160 net after taxes.

We'll see if I use it a lot of if it turns out to be a novelty item that I get tired of. If the former, I'll maybe look at a Contour GPS for the next round....

2011-10-18 Foo!

Posted 10-19-2011 at 12:38 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Well, the predicted snow last weekend fizzled. The temperature was "brisk", but nowhere near freezing. There was a huge bump up to 4000m at the beginning of the week, and it's now starting to gradually drop. By this weekend coming, freezing level is supposed to drop below Seymour peak, and they're predicting snow.

This weekend is also seasons pass pictures weekend. It's out in Langley this year, at the new Coastal Riders store on 201st St.
