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

2011-01-09 - Bleah!

Another cruddy day. Now, first I have to admit that the sky was blue, the temperature was perfect. But the snow was slippery cement again. As I said in my previous post, on these days I don't get adventurous with my boarding. And it was BUSY again. By 9:30am, Mystery was almost too busy to be worth going up. It never quite got to the peaks we saw during the holidays, but it was all day!

I did have one good milestone - I finally hit a box that required a ramp/ollie up. The first time...
