I'm going up to Cypress, if anyone wants to come get a hold of me.

Still haven't posted my setup yet, but I wear a blue Whistler/Blackcomb snowboard school jacket.

If you smell weed, look around, I can't be far away

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...
I ride seymour at least one weekday night per week. Always looking for people to ride with PM me if ya wanna ride one night in the week.

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.
From this side of it it doesn't look too big, but the chick who recorded it snapped a pic from the lower side & it looks much larger.

https://vimeo.com/59635045

The drop on my right side is only about 15-20 feet, but the drop on my left side was almost twice as big.

Wasn't sure what was going to happen, the snow had a layer of ice crust on top of it & it came to a point on top of the log.

Kinda thought I was going to slide off the side, but it was surprisingly easier than I thought it was going to be

What I wasn't expecting, was the shattered splinter spikes coming right for my belly.
There were about 5 of them, roughly 3 feet in length.
Had to grab on to them with both hands cause I didn't have any room to stop/turn.
My left mitt now has quarter size whole through it.

Luckily I spotted them or i might have been left hanging there like a shish kabob, with my intestines spilling out everywhere

You can see one huge one sticking straight up from the tree.
Sharp, pointy & extremely long


Hopefully, I'll be going back 2morra & I can take some more pics/vids

Looks like a sweet spot! I might have to come back out that way when you guys get some new snow...

Well, I haven't made it back there but the chicky who filmed it sent me a couple pics.

Big props to this chicky too, I couldn't get any guys to come in there.
They would say they would, but when we got to the big red sign hanging between two trees on a thick ass chain proclaiming "Danger Permanently closed". They all changed their mind, 6 in total.


The first pic is very deceiving.
From the high side, you can't even tell there is another downed tree & drop off, right underneath it.

As soon as we went past it & looked back, both of us @ the same time said "We should have filmed it from this side"

That's why she took the extra pic.

Hey Vancouver peeps, quick question...which of the resorts close to Vancouver should we hit on our way back from Whistler. We are thinking of doing some night riding and don't care about hitting the park. This might switch to day riding the next day so if the answer is different for that let me know. We will be coming back on a Friday from 3 days at Whistler so just looking for some nice cruisers likely and taking it easy before heading back to the States late Saturday.

Cypress IMO, crushes the other locals.

Easily twice as big, with twice the chairs.

I think Friday is busy everywhere but Cypress is open till 10:00pm.

So it's usually busy up till about 8, but after that nobody is there & you'll pretty much have the mtn to yourself.

Cypress has by far the best lights as well, with the most lit up terrain.

If it's clear, no clouds & the moon is out, you can pretty much go anywhere you could during the day.

You still be around on the 3rd of March? That's my b-day
