Vancouver 12-13 Season
 
Might as well start dreaming early.

It's June 23rd and this summer is shit. Let's skip this wimpy summer and give us back the winter. :laugh:

Booya!

Ya, I agree.

I was thinkin', when I was younger there used to be big piles of snow(ice shavings?) behind most skating rinks.
Do Zambonis' still do that? Or am I way out of date?

I want to build somethin' to play on, I had a set of monkey bars that I cut the bars out of. So now I have 2 separate 20 foot bars shaped liked this )) I got a truck to fill up with snow. almost all the pieces.


Does your girlfriend need a new board?
I got a 2011 Never Summer Lotus, it has a boot 5 days on it & is in spectacular shape.

lol, good idea, check out 8rinks in Burnaby, they always have "snow" in the back, you might get a few weird looks, haha but why not …

gf used her new board 3 times last winter, waste of money if you ask me.

My wife and I went for a hike on Seymour on the weekend. We went up Manning run to the top of Mystery, and got a good look at the work that's being done for the new quad chair.

First, I can't be positive, but it sure looks like they're taking the time to do some reshaping on the Manning run. They seem to be filling in the first flat spot (where the Brockton exit meets the Manning run) and they may even be filing down the uphill part of the Brockton exit. They are also widening the gap on Manning where it starts to go downhill again. I'm actually a little pissed about that because the sides of the run right there were great for riding up.

They've also pretty much totally flattened the top of Mystery around where the old lift off-ramp was. the new terminus is a little sooner than the old one I think, which (with the flattening) means you have a huge and gentle offloading area, both left and right.

The new lift will follow pretty much the same line as the old one, but the towers will be in different places. In particular there won't be one right in the middle of the Northlands run where it crosses the lift path.

Anyway, seems to be proceeding. I guess they have to really get it done by the end of October, which is when it generally starts snowing.

Haha, nice one. Yep, I'm sifting around these parts trying not to torture myself too much.

Cheers for the Seymour update Donutz

Has anybody been up to ride the Whistler Glacier this "summer"? Couldn't find any pics of this year's setup.

I haven't this summer but I used to go camping in Pemberton for August long weekend, 6 years in a row. Haven't been for @ least 5 years.

But let me tell you it is fuckin' awesome, you kinda have to @ least be an intermediate rider because it's mostly snowboard parks & a halfpipe.
If you can't hit medium sized kickers, you will be riding on flat boring terrain.

But even that is pretty fun when it's like 35-40 degrees & the sun is beating down & there are chicks in bikini's. Not lots of them, but a few.

Everyone has a huge shit eatin' grin on their face :D& are happier than a pig in shit.

I got the worst sun burn under my arms & in my armpits, it's just not somewhere where you think to put sunscreen.

The only shitty thing is the days are really short, like 11-3 or something like that. I can't remember the exact hours but they are short, you gotta get there as it opens or your paying a lot for not very much.

If you have the chance do it, you'll remember it forever.

Just seen an add on craigslist for a guy & girls Technines with bindings, sweet lookin' rides. Not mine, nor do I know who's they.

$100 bucks a piece, seems pretty cheap if anyone wanted one.
The girls board has rocker, don't know about the guys board?

Holy crapper, just realized this forum is tapatalk compatible now for iPhone/iPad yaaaiya

+ some bad/good news for me.

The Bad, I won't be able to board as much this winter. Schedule is going to be one cluster fck of a mess.

The Good, I got accepted to Vancouver Acting School and will be going to school full time! I just did a complete 180 with my life.

My Crim degree proved to be useless, so I decided to fuck it all, and try to fulfill a long dream of mine . Lol I might be dreaming, the hell I'll never know unless I try!

Wish me luck. Because its scary to quit everything and go into unknown.
