Well I hesitated & missed out.

2 brand new Never Summer boards were posted on Craigslist for $250 each.
Snowboards Never Summer

I had exactly $250 but didn't want to be left broke, + I already have too many.
Regardless, I shoulda bought one anyway. What was I thinkin'? I coulda rode it & sold it for $300.
Really pissed @ myself right now.

But I have a feeling Kung-pow might have grabbed one, if not both @ that price.

Well Kung-pow, did you grab one or both of those?

By your logic a skateboarder wouldn't be able to make it up the other side of a half pipe, yet they do & pump to gain even more momentum.

Go back to school.

yea.... because a halfpipe is usually made out of an inflatable bag isn't it?


you fucking idiot.

Looking out my window, the mountains are still in clouds but I can see snow way down into north van.

Woohoo! And Grouse is reporting that it's currently snowing.

FUCK Seymour and their barely-maintained excuse for a web page!

Was up on Seymour this afternoon. Here's the new Mystery loading station:







Goldie:



The snow was about 8" deep on Goldie. Easily enough to do some runs. I'm sure it was deeper uphill on Mystery, but we didn't head that way.
