was just at grouse today, cause its the only place my car could probably make it.

anyways... conditions were better than i originally thought. snow was pretty soft for the *VERY* few runs that were open, patches of powder scattered from the snow machines.
towards the very end of the night, a bit of ice formed up in some areas but majority of it was still pretty nice.

one of the main runs that goes towards the quad chair isn't open because parts of it still got little bushes protruding, but we decided to explore it and there is lots of good powder there with a thin frozen "crust". this would be a good spot to build a jump and just go for big air with little physical backlash.

i don't think i snow will turn to ice that easy or fast, it was -10C for a majority of the day, and i don't think temperatures are gonna dip for a little while... at least i hope not. BUT MORE SNOW PLZ!!!!1!!1 real snow

Its supposed to warm up and have rain/snow fall in the city over wednesday eve. Should make for a much better weekend on the hills next week.

I'm going to hold off till there is more fun snow, well that and th fact we're moving in a week anyways makes things difficult to have time to play

Heading up to Big White tomorrow for the weekend... hoping it's not too crowded but apparently they had the busiest opening day for a long time.

it seems like all the local mountains (grouse, seymour, cypress) just got hit with 30cm+ of snow. i just hope temperatures don't go above freezing point.

edit: Vangruver: what kind of board do you ride now and which ones have you ridden in the past? just reading your posts from over a while it seems like you do lots of tricks and what no. i've got a long power board but am thinkin of switching up to something a lot more flexible, mine is only good for the half pipe but not rails or jumps, hard to initiate spin.

In my quiver now, i have a newer lib tech skate banana, which is a 152cm. It's stiffer overall than the first generation banana. A reverse camber board. Very mild in regards to torsional stiffness, but very poppy, meaning that once compressed, it will rebound quickly. But not overly stiff to discourage turn inititation or edge to edge transfer.

I also have an older ride DH 159, narrow waist twin tip shape with bi-radial side cut. STIFF board, charges well, pop is amazing and very solid board for charging bigger jumps.

Those are the only two boards in my current stash, I had more, ridden more. just need to think of them at the moment.

I'll post another reply in regards to that.

Lemme get back to you.

Was thinking about going up tomorrow but knee has been hurting today randomly, so think I'll just wait until Big White next weekend

Was up at grouse today, weather was pretty wild, went from sunny to foggy to snow, and all over again. Snow was awesome, needs another good dump for some more runs to open up.
Wuld have been an A+ day... except my g/fs board got stolen when we went in to grab a coffee
