Update on the Seymour website: Today on Mount Seymour | Mount Seymour

they mention that they're reshaping some of the runs. I bet the runout from Brockton to Manning is being modified to get rid of the uphill section. Really looking forward to seeing it this season!

Just thought I'd throw this out there cause that's a wicked deal for a wicked board.

Hump day!

We should see if we can get all/most of our Vancouverite brethren to hit up opening day @ the various hills.

Opening day is one of the best days imo, most of the time if the snow has been on the ground for a bit, it hardens up so you don't sink like fresh powder but it's still super smooth fresh lines.
You don't lose your speed as much either, which I think would be a big bonus @ Seymour, but if we all hook up, you local Seymour boys know the good linesanyway, so good times for all!!

Hemlock is usually EPIC on opening day, the don't open when they get a foot of snow like Cypress, they usually wait a bit longer. The last few years have been like 4+ feet of goodness for opening day & Nobody goes there.

Fresh tracks all day until close & you can ride right onto the lift cause there ain't no lift lineup.

Plus I need someone to film me riding off the chairlift, so I can bury that thread.

Can't wait for opening day, I hope Cypress does early november opening again. I know the conditions weren't good, but they only charged like 15 or 20 bucks so it was totally worth it to get a couple days in weeks before Whis opened.

A friend and I checked out Hemlock on opening day last year, it was the first time I'd ever been there and I loved it. Planning to hit hemlock a bunch of times this year.

2009 the 10th, don't think they wanted to, but it snowed 6 feet the week before & there was a shit load of people already up there.
2010 the 16th
2011 the 10th I think cause Cypress did?

But I'm pretty sure they always plan to open on the 16 of Dec.
They usually have enough snow, way more than Cypress when it opened & could probably open sooner.
It seems like they open when they get their shit somewhat together, cause it's the biggest gong show out of any mtn I've ever been to.
They could make that place wicked if they fired everyone in management, I swear the upper level knows less than the peons & are simply there to ride for free.

Just go to their website, it's crap. With next to no info & never gets updated.
But I will say, they are the only local hill, that I go to, that has web cams so you can actually tell what the weather is like.
It seems like all (Cypress) the other ones just lie to get you up there.

I thought they were getting a new lift as well, I coulda swore I posted a link to it before, maybe I'll try & find it.
You never know they might be, but you'd think they would post it up somewhere so people knew?

Maybe all that bullshit keeps the people away? That & the road.(which I love, & should be turned into a rally race)

If anyone plans to go up there, hit me up.
I know that mtn inside & out & there is some incredible out of bounds lines there.

I am absolutely going to hit Hemlock this year. I did Cypress for the first time last year (disappointing) and Whistler for the first time (way cool). This year, Hemlock and Baker (if I can get my shit together and get my passport).

For real, Hemlock is sick and that road is awesome

Can 2nd the shit-show comment. Last time I was there there they shut down half the hill because they had no power (?). Still, fun as all hell and pow lines til the arvo

Donutz: YES, get your passport and go to Baker
