Triple8Sol's Official Gear List

This blog post is a place for me to keep a running list of gear I've had experience with recently. Helps me to keep track and also forms the foundation for my opinions.

Overwhelming majority of the gear is/was personally owned and the rest were long-term demos. Nothing from demo days are listed as I don't feel that provides a sufficient basis for review/comparison.

Happy 2014. Ungh.

Yeah, it's Jan 1st, 2014. How's the season, you ask? What season, sez I. The last week or so, we've started to see public lamentations on the news about the crappy season. They've even admitted to That Which Must Not Be Said, that Whistler is having a bad one! Gasp! (Yeah, I'm not bitter).

Snow-forecast.com has predicted a lot of snow coming up in the next few days for close to a month now, but when the day rolls up, there's nada. Always in the future. And still, either wet or cold...

Snowing now. Curse ended?

Posted 12-20-2013 at 05:08 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

It started snowing overnight. It's been snowing all day at ground level and on the mountain, although there's still less than a foot of accumulation even up there. Maybe this is it. This storm does keep going for days, although the freezing level gets sketchy at points. I want to do my Praise Ullr dance, but I've been hurt too many times...

Seymour is open - sort of

Posted 12-14-2013 at 09:49 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Seymour announced the last couple of days that they are opening Goldie as of today the 14th.

Woohoo....

Predictions continue to be iffy. No rainstorms, but it bounces up and down in and out of freezing level. I think December is a writeoff. Wow.

Couple of the guys who are Cypress regulars were talking about the damage done to their boards because of the thin cover. Glad I didn't decide to do that, although I suppose I would have used the Ride anyway....

Maybe some hope?

It's Dec 7th, and all snow predictions have faded into the distance like a mirage. However, the predictors starting Monday the 9th evening are showing significant snow off through the rest of the week. Maybe, maybe...

It's really infuriating -- it's been COLD for almost 2 weeks now, and I mean close to record-setting for this time of year. But all blue skies -- no chance of precip at all. In the lower mainland we seem to have the choice of cold or wet but not both at the same time....
