Whistler vs. Mount.Seymour - (JUMPS comparison)
Here's the story, I got 1700$ to spend on passes.
Last year i got a whistler season pass, but what made it tough was the drive from vancouver to whistler, i was able to do once every second saturday. or 15-20 times up per year (which came to breaking even). So around spring, i started checking out the local mountains (cypress/grouse/seymour).
Cypress was the closest to what whisstler had in terms of powder and back terrain boarding (i'd say 40% of the size of whistler). But it lacked JUMPS, and they had no halfpipe, and terrain park sucked. And although their powder is best in terms of the three local ones, i'm lookin to practice my jumps more locally, cause nothing compares to the GLACIERS up at whistler.
Grouse was just garbage, except for their terrain park but only had two jumps and rest RAILS (but then of course im comparing it to whistler so it may be unfair).
Seymour, never been to: but locals say for $300 cant go wrong. What i want to know about seymour though is i dont care so much for the RAILS, but what i do care is the JUMPS. DOES SEYMOUR HAVE GOOD JUMPS?
Reason I want a local mountain, is so i can go every SUNDAY or after work from LowerMainland. And whistler would be every second saturday or whenever i can hitch ride.
what's peopls opinions on Seymour for JUMPS? How many do they have. Also new to the city, so wondering where i can meetup locals that board every weekend, any good sites people recommend?
