Bunch of items...

Got our seasons passes yesterday at Second Wave. I also got my shuttle pass.

We went up the mountain today. The situation is a little better than I was thinking. There's snow everywhere, although the rocks still show. Some guy was even boarding down Manning. Sure hope he was using a beater board, because there's a good chance he's going to have at least one core shot.

Anway, we hiked up to Mystery Lake, which is completely frozen over....

2011-10-28 Snow Show

Posted 10-28-2011 at 11:27 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went to the Vancouver Snow Show tonight. Bought a pair of Rome 390's for cheap.

It's still snowing on the mountain, mixed with rain. Waiting for it to start sticking.

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. Snow-forecast.com 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....
