Lets do it moe, yesterday fuckin' rocked.

Someone should have a bit of footy I'd like to see the snow fence hang-up

I wanted to go today again, it was killing me. I could see mtns from Maple Ridge, clear as day. I left @ 8 last night & @ that point you could bomb ANYTHING Full out, in any direction.
Kung-Pow & I put in about 10 hours yesterday, we couldn't leave, every run got significantly better as the night went on. By far the best day of the season for me.

You could pretty much ride right on to the chair too. It was snowing so much, everybody seemed to be hiding in the lodge.

Today would have been even better. I'm sure someone will chime in

Apparently, it's pukin' up there as we speak.

They tore down the small one in Young Guns to use the snow for the 40' monsters. There are a couple of 20' jumps in Northlands that are fairly mellow. My definition of "mellow" is if you knuckle, you don't come out 3 ft tall.

This was most likely done for the Vans High Standard event this Sat. Last year it was held in Northlands but with the new lift tower in place I don't see how they could accommodate in the same fasion as last year. Other than that there seems to be something for every level in the terrain parks; three ride on features in lower mushroom, some medium sides ons in Young Guns and of course many features in the Pit.

It was pretty good this morning. Much lighter than the stuff coming down on Seymour last night. There were some sections with some hard crusty's under the fresh snow.....run of the day was OB.

After being in the beginner terrain park on Cypress on Wednesday, I'm even less happy with the beginner coverage on Seymour now. At minimum Seymour needs to add:
  • A ride-on rail that is less than a foot off the snow
  • A less than 20 foot jump
  • Very low street-style rail and box

There's some other stuff Cypress had that I really liked, but those weren't items that I would consider essential to easy progression. The items that I've listed would specifically help me get past beginner nervousness. Considering how little the rail on Lodge is getting used, I think I'm probably not alone.

I lapped through the beginner park at Cypress yesterday and would totally agree with you that it is done properly, unlike Mushroom at Seymour. A couple years ago when Seymour had Mushroom set up beside the rope tow they had rails and boxes less than a foot off the snow and it was done right.......I guess those were the good ol days

I too was diggin' that little kiddie park, that was the first time I had been in there. Didn't even know it was there

That's part of my problem, I usually go by myself & have set runs that have taken a long time to acquire. When it dumps, I know where I'm goin' way before I even get there.

Any who, going to Cypress.

You know the drill.
