Ruminations

Posted 01-25-2011 at 10:22 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

My daughter is sick today, so I'm staying home instead of going up the mountain. Wife will be home about 4, so I'll go up then hopefully. Just have to play up the guilt a little.

So, looking at my goals for the year, I'm way ahead of schedule. The only item that I have yet to work on is moguls. Unfortunately the only mogul run on Seymour is Joel's Flight, which is pretty steep for learning something like that. Oh, well, still almost 3 months of season left.

2011-01-23 at Manning

We went up to Manning yesterday. Although it's a weekend, Manning was running weekday rates because the Blue chair is closed indefinitely (and therefore their terrain park is closed too). It was magnificently sunny for most of the day, although a light fog blew in late in the day. The snow was kind of hard-packed, although not as bad as Seymour when it hasn't snowed in a while.

I did a half-dozen runs or so off the Orange chair, including the Gully, which for the first time I was...

2011-01-21 - Meh.

Posted 01-22-2011 at 11:59 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

This was an odd day. I've booked 6 workdays off starting today. I took transit to Seymour, and got there about 8:45. Then I discovered that the mountain doesn't open until 9:30 weekdays. D'oh! So I went to the bunny slope and built a jump and did some practicing.
The morning started off cold but with a light rain falling. There was about 8" of new snow from the day before, and it was absorbing the water, resulting in that heavy sponge-cake stuff. But about 10am, the rain tuned to snow,...

2011-01-12 Best of times, worst of times

Posted 01-12-2011 at 08:13 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I was really looking forward to my day on Seymour. Snow-forecast.com was predicting significant snow today, and it had snowed 6 inches overnight. And weekdays are never busy at Seymour. All in all, a great setup for a great day.

Pffft. As if. What I found when I got there was fog so thick you couldn't see trees or lift towers until you were right on top of them. In addition, it'd been raining all morning, so all that wonderful new snow had been turned into sponge cake.

Never Summer Evo/Revolver help! Darn this big feet!

Posted 01-11-2011 at 03:34 PM by dirtydan

HTML Code:
I'm about ready to turn to one of these Never Summer boards.  I have my longer and stiff board and am now ready to start jibbing and hitting the park.  I finally made the decision that the Evo is the board i would get only to be struck by a big foot problem again.  

I'm 5'10", currently weigh 156lbs (and gaining through weight training), and I wear a US size 11.5 boot.  I really don't want to have to resort to the wider Revolver if its not absolutely neccessary.  Has anybody
