Was up at seymour on boxing day, got about 3 hours of riding in till they closed Mystery and Brockton chairs... left shortly after slightly pissed off LOL. Hit up grouse on monday (27th) and there was about POWDAAAAA in the morning, and it was snowing all day!! Took a few pics and a vid... but need to fiddle with the camera settings a bit before i can actually get a decent pic.

So I was stoked when my new setup arrived in the mail the other day, and to my surprise when I excitedly opened the box for the Targas, there was only the left one in there


Their online shop office was closed when I received it because it was new years eve and then the weekend so I need to wait til tomorow to see what they're going to do in order to get me an actual set of bindings. They better get their shit together soon as I wanna ride and of course its blue bird days following some crazy snowfall and I'm sidelined until this is resolved.

Where should I go to learn how to board?

I went to whistler with fam. and they're all pretty experienced ... I sucked hard and got essentially stuck on blackcomb mountain (Went upto the second stop on the gondola, as high as it'll go before its chairlifts only) and it was just brutal from the get-go. It was rewarding, I had a half decent 25-30 second run of no falling before it was all over, but near the end I was exhausted from constantly falling and getting back up.


What's a good mountain to go learn on? I have no gear besides snow pants and a waterproof jacket.

The 30 seconds of boarding I had without falling was pretty intoxicating, I wanna do it again, but it's eff-ing hard. Where to learn, revscene!?

grouse or cypress bunny hill. although ive never been to grouse, but heard the cut is pretty good to learn since its so wide and you wont get in the way of people.

plus at cypress you can learn how to get on and off the lift at the bunny hill. just ask for advice if its your first time on/off the operators there are usually friendly.


EDIT: i would not go to seymour to learn. 1 being the bunny hill is really short and you have to use a rope tow to get back up. and also it gets quite busy up there. where as cypress has more runs/lifts so even if there are more ppl in total at cypress its more spread out than seymour.

learn on grouse or cypress. For Grouse, if its a clear day I recommend going straight to the cut as its quite flat.

Bang for your buck? Seymour.

Why? Because it's cheap, the rentals are cheap, the hill is not as pretentious as cypress or grouse, and the rope tow is the most fundamental place to learn how to snowboard.

Contrary to popular belief, a rope tow will teach you the bare bare essentials on learning how to snowboard. you will not learn as quickly on a chair lift as you'll fall on your ass plenty of times getting on and off of the chair.

Will you fall on a rope tow? yep, i guarantee you will. But once you learn how to one foot slide on a snowboard, you'll be able to skoot your way towards a chair onto a chair, and also get yourself in the position towards learning the where, why and how of weight positioning.

After that? when you get the essentials down, you can take your skill to a chair, then it will be rewarding as all hell once it all transfers to you.

If you don't have access to a car, grouse is your next best option...why? it's transit accessible. a few buses to the loop and you're taking a tram to the mountain. It's not that expensive, and it's reasonably fun there as well.

Cypress is a mountain that I've found to be a fashion show hill. Where you can find people dawning the latest and greatest gear, who don't know how to snowboard all that well. But it offers you the longest runs of all the shore hills, but it comes with a price. As it is the most expensive hill to flock too.

One last thing you'd want to consider......is the willingness to want to learn. Accepting pain, and continuing to try again. And knowing when to call it quits. As you can get hurt quickly if you get tired.

^dude cypress is the shit, disregarding other's gear, acquire joy. I learned how to ski there just by hitting the slope on my first day. Went skiing there for my second time of my life on Sunday and managed to go faster and do more crazy stuff than friend on a snowboard. Love skiing.

edit* mind you I used to snowboard but stopped 2 years ago and picked up skiing 2 weeks ago.
