2011-10-18 Foo!

Posted 10-18-2011 at 11:38 PM 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.

Waiting on winter

Planning on landing some 3s this season I hope. With a little hard work I think I can do it, also really want to go out west and ride some real mountains.

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...
