2011-03-03 Minor notes

Posted 03-03-2011 at 10:02 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Just a couple of updates...

Mystery was fixed yesterday (Wednesday), but we had a windstorm in the lower mainland so the entire mountain was shut down. If it isn't one thing, it's six things

And it doesn't look like we're going up Grouse this Friday. Wife is swamped with obligations and had to cancel. Oh, well.

It continues to snow, basically every. freakin'. day. Unless we get a heat wave, I think the season will be extended this year. Oh...

So, here's what I wrote for short-term goals back on Feb 13 (Mygod, more than TWO WEEKS ago!):

- ollies
- butter spins
- bs 180's off a side hit
- pops on jumps
- lead-switching

Got the last 3 now. Almost have the first two. I guess I'm gonna need a bigger list

Reviewing my progress the last month or two, I think the biggest single thing that I did this year was doing side-hits and off-piste and riding the rough...

2011-02-28 What the hell?

I wish I hadn't already used the "best of times, worst of times" title, because today would have been a natural for it.

First, Mystery chair was broken today, so everyone was on Chucks or the bunny slope. Only good thing about that is there weren't too many people overall, it being a weekday. Don't know how long the chair will be down. If it's still bust by the weekend, you can forget the mountain.

Somehow this doesn't surprise me though. I've commented in...

2011-02-27 Snow Daze!

Posted 02-27-2011 at 09:02 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Wow, did it ever snow on the mountain today! Mind you, it snowed at home too. When I left home this morning, there was about 5" of snow on the driveway. By the time I got to the Seymour Parkway, it was snowing almost at municipal level. It snowed all the way up to the parking lot. And then it snowed all day. Good snow, too.

I made this a downhill day, given the conditions. Wasn't able to hit the jumps because the deep pow slowed things just a little too much. And the parks weren't...

2011-02-22 A little better with the night riding

Posted 02-23-2011 at 03:59 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I went up night skiing with the wife last night. The snow was really good -- powder really, just not deep enough to earn the title. It was cold, but the dry kind of cold that doesn't bother you that much.

Because I was riding with my spousal unit, I didn't really plan on working on anything new. However despite myself, I did earn the grinning smiley anyway. At one point I went down Unicorn and had the opportunity to try Snowolf's Deep S carving, where you're supposed to bleed off...
