Seymour is open - sort of

Posted 12-14-2013 at 09:49 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

Seymour announced the last couple of days that they are opening Goldie as of today the 14th.


Predictions continue to be iffy. No rainstorms, but it bounces up and down in and out of freezing level. I think December is a writeoff. Wow.

Couple of the guys who are Cypress regulars were talking about the damage done to their boards because of the thin cover. Glad I didn't decide to do that, although I suppose I would have used the Ride anyway....

Maybe some hope?

It's Dec 7th, and all snow predictions have faded into the distance like a mirage. However, the predictors starting Monday the 9th evening are showing significant snow off through the rest of the week. Maybe, maybe...

It's really infuriating -- it's been COLD for almost 2 weeks now, and I mean close to record-setting for this time of year. But all blue skies -- no chance of precip at all. In the lower mainland we seem to have the choice of cold or wet but not both at the same time....

It's December 1st, and there is NO SNOW AT ALL at the Seymour parking lot. All those winter storms I mentioned in my previous post have evaporated. It's been POURING RAIN for the last 48 hours or so. This is definitely going to be the worst season start ever. Well, next year we'll be using one of Timmytard's corporate deals and buying Cypress passes. Cypress isn't great right now, but with the snowmakers they at least have some runs open.

On an unrelated subject, I spent yesterday...

Trying to get over it

Posted 11-16-2013 at 11:41 AM by Donutz (This Side Up)

I re-read my blog entries from last year, and it seems I was still whining about the lack of snow on Nov 30th!! And last year we ended up opening on the 7th and had a gorgeous December. Rest of the season sucked, but that's another subject .

Anyway, it looks like winter storms are lining up to hit BC one after the other. There's bumps in freezing level between each storm with accompanying rain, but as long as the snow level keeps increasing I can live with that.

Should I settle for a T6 or grab this years model Custom X. Ideally I want a hard charging carving board for groomers and powder scenarios.

I have a burton t7 159 for sale if you are still interested. Good condition about 10-15 days on it.
