I'm hoping to go up a few nights a week once the night lights are on. I'll be leaving North Burnaby around 6pm, if anyone lives nearby I'm up for giving you a ride anytime.
Haha, yeah we all hope that with our jobs. Can't have work interfering with shred

Will be doing the Seymour night laps too. Realistically one or two nights a week. I'll shoot you a PM when it kicks off. Always good to say what's up to forum members

This style of riding is why i'm such a fan of Seymour. I know this is shot at Hood Meadows but locally Seymour has this kinda terrain going on too. Lots of spots to hit even if your not a park rat. Dope natural features

Check it for some stoke!

Yeah, last season was such a waste for me. I was so excited, bought a new board/bindings, fancy new jacket, watched tons of videos.. Then was stuck at work 6-7 days a week, 10 hours a day, from October to April. I think I went up twice.

Yes shit, I think we chatted before last season and you mentioned work being an asshole

Yeah, I think we did. That project I was working on was supposed to finish in early January, and got extended until April. Got a new job this year though, so.. Fingers crossed!

By the way, that video was awesome. The little bit from 2:00 to 3:00, I'd be happy if that's all I ever did on a snowboard! So much fun..

Surprisingly good day at cypress today. As usual you have to hit small windows to get really good conditions on the locals, and for a first day to the season it was really fun. 30cm of new snow, and at the start it wasnt that heavy. Great season opener, sadly it reminded me how out of snowboard shape im in. Going to the gym doesnt make up for the real thing.

All they've had open so far up till today, has been 1 run on the Eagle chair.

Tomorrow, Sunrise is open for the first time this year. Should be some sweet ridin' if you go off the beaten' path.

I think they want everyone to stay on Collins, so everywhere else should be awesome

Just gotta be there super early, cause that shits gonna get raped quick.

I can't wait.

It still might not be deep enough for hard carvin' so I don't think I'm bringin' the new Slackcountry yet. Oh, do I want to though.

I guess I'll have to see what this banana is like in the pow, ridden it 2wice so far on chopped to shit hard pack & it's pretty good.
I haven't found anything I don't like about it yet.

Will putting a setback stance on a full rocker board help/hinder or do anything?

TT
