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...

So I've been trying to get the family up to Seymour all week, given the epic snowfall. As of yesterday, more than two meters of new snow in the last seven days! Unfortunately, stuff keeps happening and we keep bailing. So last night, I went alone. Unfortunately, I think I've decided that I just don't care for night riding. Now it's still true that any riding is better than no riding, but unless the family is going up with me, I'm just not motivated enough to pack, drive, park, etc for a night session....

2011-02-14 Now THAT'S better!

Went up the mountain today, arriving about 10:30 to a blizzard! Apparently it had been rain earlier, but had turned to snow just shortly before I got there. Because of the earlier rain, I think a lot of people must have left, because it was deserted even for a Monday.

First, the day gets a because I nailed a new technique -- always an automatic Big Grin. Today, I finally got the flatland shuffle right. I've been doing it more or less up until now, but it was kind of a flat shuffle...

2011-02-13 Sitting and thinking

Posted 02-13-2011 at 07:35 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I'm going up the mountain tomorrow with the wife, but I'm sitting here today thinking about snowboarding. Some random thoughts, in no particular order...

The inuit were said to have some huge number of words for snow. Don't know if there's any basis for that claim, but I can see the usefulness. Here's my coinages for types of snow that I've been experiencing:

- Pow: That's pretty standard. New, dry snow. Lousy for making snowballs but great for boarding in. Saw it once...
