Coming up on mid-year

Posted 06-17-2015 at 10:09 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Yes, we're coming up on the longest day of the year. I've said before that I consider it the unofficial "mid-point" of the off-season. If I had to pick a word to describe my feelings about that, it would be "ennui." Great word, that. I've never had a reason to use it before.

I look up at the North Shore mountains and there is not one lick, not one speck of white on any of them, anywhere. Not even on the Lions. Yeesh.

So this'll be the make-or-break...

Well, that's it. Cypress has come out and admitted on their web page that the season is done. Previously, they were still doing the "it can still happen" thing. Pfft. As if.

Anyway, they've published their incentive for customers to re-up, and surprisingly, it's a good offer. For existing passholders, you can buy the same pass for next year at 80% off. Yeah, you heard me. That works out to $119 for a new GOLD pass for me for next year. I know I've been saying I wasn't going...

Crap continues

Posted 01-12-2015 at 10:55 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I figure I should post something just so the four people who are following my blog don't think I died.

Cypress continues to suck. Not that it's Cypress' fault, they're all sucking. They've now stopped opening the Lions chair, so other than the bunny slope, they're down to one mountain. They haven't even been able to make snow lately, as the freezing level has been above the peak.

The forecast is hinting at the possibility of snow by about Thursday of this...

Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaap!

First snowboarding of the season today. woo hoo. What a stinking, smoking pile of crap. I did one run and left. Basically, you have the following choices:

1. Corduroy.

That is all.

They didn't even open Lions chair, despite saying they were going to.

I don't know if I'm getting old, or impatient, or both, but I've got better things to do with my day than put up with crap conditions. I'll go back once they get some real snowfall....
