[QUOTE=timmytard;704425][B]Wow, what a day yesterday

I'd have to say that was THE best day snowboarding, I've ever had in my entire life.

I now know, there is no place on Cypress that you can't go.
Never again will I have to search for powder.


Got there for opening hoping I would have first tracks on a cloudless day.
Not so much, it must have cleared up enough Thur night for all of it to get chewed up.
Now it was a bit foggy with light flurries.
Really disappointing.


Did one run & it sucked, got a bit of pow but basically nothin'. So I went on the hunt. Didn't have anyone with me, so I only had to worry about myself.

I went in the most treacherous place you can go & to my amazement, it was phenomenal No one goes in there & for good reason.
It has jaw dropping terrain, rollers ranging from huge to 30 foot cliffs.
A whole lotta cliffs & staircases, the whole thing is just so fuckin' steep, that everything is a jump. There are more cliffs in this one little area than all the rest of Cypress combined.
I need to borrow someones helmet cam, you guys need to see this.

The blizzard from last week brought a tonne of snow, but because of the high winds, some exposed places had none or very little.

Those winds didn't affect where I was, the huge old growth trees killed the wind. It was so deeeep, were talking 2-3+ feet.
If it hadn't been that deep, I probably wouldn't/couldn't have gone in there

This shit is no joke, I couldn't even get a single person to come in there with me.
I asked a few guys that I thought would be up for it.
Told them it was some pretty crazy shit, most of them were cocky & laughed.
They all said yes, but when we got to the entrance. You should have seen their faces when they had to eat humble pie

That's when I realized I could go anywhere, what I had been doing all day is without a doubt the hairiest terrain @ Cypress.
It's not even considered a run, it's "Danger permanently closed area"

From that point on, I just started jumping over the out-of-bounds fences
It was so dark & cold in there, powder should last days after it's dead & gone everywhere else.


Then @ roughly 6:30 I was talking to some chick who was using the air-bag, she said it was free all weekend.
What, what, holy shit, I booked it down & signed the waiver.

With all the recent snow the big kicker had less of a kick, but overall you went way bigger than any other time I had used it.
Combine that with the speed you could generate, holy shit.

I was doing the hugest laid out back flips, so big, they had to ask me to slow down my in-run because I was almost landing on the back bumper.

Stayed till closing 13 hours of riding

By far the best fuckin' day ever!!!

We got first chair at Cypress Thurs am after the wed dump.....I have to say this would rate in the top 5 pow days I have had in my life time!!!! OB was spectacular....at one point my son turned to me with pow half way up his thigh and said, "Dad, this is what its all about isnt it?" as he continued to use the bent over snow covered trees as jumps only to land in untracked pow.....I damn new shed a tear I hope he catches up on his school work he missed that day

Gotta love the annual Feb snow dump on the North Shore hills...Life is good!!!!

I am heading to Vancouver in 18 days!! I moved to Ontario from BC for university and I still haven't moved back . I was living on the island so I don't know much about Vancouver. I was hoping to go to some of the local mountains. Is there public transit that I can take to them since I won't have a car with me? Also, anyone want to ride with me? My bf will be working during the week and my other friends either don't ski/board or just had surgery. So I wont have anyone to go with!

I will be going to Whistler on March 3rd as well!

Side note, I just got a Never Summer Infinity. I rode it yesterday for the first time. AMAZING!! Such a huge step up from my Burton Lux...

Grouse is about the only one you can transit to, though Seymour and cypress do have shuttles.

I head up to whistler every weekend, so you're (or anyone else for that matter) welcome to tag along whenever. It's nice to have someone else in the car to make the drive less boring, and riding buddy's = trees!

Fuck, I'm jealous. Haven't been in weeks now! Hopefully I get to go tomorrow night.

On the other hand, the hard work I put in to school is paying off. Signing with an agent next week hopefully.

I usually ride at Cypress. I work during the week so I generally only ride weekends and the odd Friday night. I'm friendly, polite, and I always drive up and ride alone, so you're more than welcome to come with me, as long as you don't mind a ride in my messy old Benz!

Ya, Thur was the day. I shut er down Wed night.
When I left my car had more than a foot on it.
Not everywhere on it, but if you were to attach a string from the front of the hood to the roof, that area was filled in & growing.

I had a feelin' Thur might be awesome, but was hoping the blizzard kept going up till @ least Thur night & clear up for Fri morn.

But hey, it couldn't have worked out better.
Thank you so much for tearing that shit up for me.
Had you not have, I would never have thought to go in there.
