Some stuff

Posted 02-11-2011 at 11:50 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Getting ready to go up tomorrow. It's snowing on the local mountains even as I speak, uh, type. They've got 17 cm on Seymour, with probably double that due overnight. Whoo-hoo, finally!

On a side note, I found the web page on the Seymour site that describes the current park features. Turns out my 20-footer is actually a 25-footer. Hm. I'll have to remember to be more scared tomorrow

May end up meeting some ppl from the forums tomorrow. Hope it's not too humbling....

2011-02-07 More of the same

Posted 02-09-2011 at 11:07 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Went up Seymour on Monday. It was essentially a repeat of Saturday. Same blue sky (although clouds rolled in occasionally and it did try to snow), same snowcrete base, although maybe even harder than on Saturday. Except being a Monday, it was not busy. Thatís always good.

I spent pretty much the whole day working on the jump at the top of Northlands. I also hit the roller in the transition from Manning to Northlands, which turns out to be a pretty nice little practice jump for trying...

2-5-2011 Shred for the Cup Big Air Event

Posted 02-06-2011 at 05:26 PM by Tachypsychia (The Snow Ninja)

Last night was the shred for the cup series' first event: Big Air. App Ski hosted it and I thought it took place between 4-7. Apparently that was preregistration and the event began at 7. I went around the slopes a few times, trying out the jumps and FS 180s. I am so much more comfortable landing a FS buttered pretzel going 270* and landing regular than an ollie to switch. I just dont feel rigth about it yet which means I need to practice more. I hit the jumps fine but the landing zones were pretty...

2011-02-05 was a great day

This was a great day, but also a very odd day. To start with, I took transit again to get to the mountain. This time I made it all the way to Parkgate before things tanked. The mountain shuttle was supposed to pick us up at 8:35. By 8:55, I phoned customer service to find out wtf. Turns out they'd rerouted the bus to Lonsdale to pick up employees early, probably because of the competitions.

And this weekend is a busy one for competitions. Two days of downhill and freestyle. Interestingly,...

2-3-2011- Need a Waxing

Posted 02-03-2011 at 10:48 AM by Tachypsychia (The Snow Ninja)

So I'm taking a day off from the slopes to let my legs recover a bit. Doing all the presses and ollies last night took a good toll on my legs. In the mean time, I need to put a coat of wax on the board. It looks pretty bad. After classes tomorrow I'll spend some time putting a good coat on it and then hit the slopes when they open for night session.
