Just sitting...

Posted 12-01-2010 at 11:38 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I'm sitting in the living room, thinking about snowboarding. I think this is going to be pretty common over the next several months.

Looking back at my last post, it was kind of sparse. But then, I was pretty tired. And sore. But, interestingly, not as bad as last year. And I seem to have more stamina. I guess the pre-season conditioning in the gym has made a difference. Cool.

So anyway, for my first day up the mountain, I managed to do a quite satisfactory job with...

Day One

Posted 11-29-2010 at 11:04 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Today was my first day of snowboarding on Seymour. It was great! Going during the week is definitely recommended. I don't think I had to wait for more than two chairs the whole day.

And the snow! It never stopped snowing, from opening until closing. And this isn't crushed and re-crushed frozen rain, or barely frozen snow-cones. Real, actual snow. I discussed snow-depth with one of the lifties, and we agreed that there was actually more snow base last year at this time. But from the...

Just some updates

Posted 11-28-2010 at 12:31 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

A few updates...

First, the rain predictions have evaporated. Although snow-forecast.com is showing the freezing level rising above 1000m on Monday, it's on just above and they're still predicting snow. So the takeaway is not to get too freaked out about those predictions.

Second, and far less good, it doesn't look like we're going up the mountain today. Scheduling issues are keeping us around home for the whole afternoon. I'd be fairly irate if we weren't planning...

Opening Day Today

Today is opening day at Seymour. After 200+ days of countdown on my whiteboard at work, it's finally hit the big goose-egg. The whiteboard now says "This space for rent" . As mentioned previously, Seymour is open daytime only at the moment, so no evening visits just yet.

It's been snowing pretty regularly the last week or two, and especially yesterday and today. I'm a little concerned though about the 6-day predictions from snowfix.com and snow-forecast.com . They're...

Seymour Opening!

Today, Seymour announced their opening day as Thursday, Nov 25th. Hours will be 9:30 - 4pm weekdays, and 8:30 - 4:00 weekends. At the moment they are indicating that all Mystery Chair runs and the Goldie Tow Rope runs will be open.

This is all subject to snow levels, of course. And at the moment, the forecasts are predicting major snow dumps starting Wednesday night, continuing for at least 4 days. So if we get enough snow, the Lodge Chair runs will be opened up and night skiing hours...
