Just saying.
You also have to be willing to look a bit goofy when you're filming, or else that 100GB is all shaky top of helmet views of runs.

Haha, no shame in using a monopod 3' long with a gopro attached while holding it up in front of you to capture you and everything behind you.

So apparently Grouse opened today and Cypress is to open tomorrow..

Quote:


The local ski season is back — as of this afternoon.

Grouse Mountain is opening today at 3 p.m..

With the recent cold weather and several days of snowmaking, it’s ready to welcome skiers and riders on the Paradise Bowl via the Greenway Chair.

The hill will be open from 9 a.m.to 10 p.m. seven days a week at general admission rates.

The Paradise Bowl terrain park is to reopen tomorrow morning.

“It has taken a little patience and perseverance, but we are thrilled to welcome the return of winter to the Peak of Vancouver,” Grouse Mountain general manager Michael Cameron said in a statement. “The cool temperatures and clear skies have provided ideal conditions for our snowmaking efforts, which is perfect timing as we look forward to a fun-filled Spring Break here at Grouse Mountain.”

Cypress to open Wednesday

Tomorrow it is for Cypress Mountain’s opening from top to bottom.

Today’s 6 a.m. update reports that it had another good night of snowmaking.

“We kept going this morning and it looks like another good opportunity tonight! We're targeting Wednesday to open with Eagle Express and Easy Rider Quad in operation with top to bottom skiing and riding.”

The mountain reminds that this year is very similar to 2010, when everyone had all but lost hope, only for great conditions to present: “Down and out in February, then tons of snow in March and who can forget that 55-centimetre dump of powder snow on April 10 – one of the most epic days ever!”

The website has pictures to prove it all from that year.

“Our season normally extends into late April so we still have plenty of time to run into a great stretch of weather and snow,” the site says. “While the season so far has not been our best, keep in mind that huge snowfalls late in the season are very common in low snow years….Keep those snow dances going and hopefully we'll get some epic March & April snow!”

Grouse re-opens today, Cypress to re-open Wednesday

From a email I received from cypress


Cypress Re-Opens the Downhill Area for Winter 2014/15 2.0

Our "Best In the Business" Snowmaking Crew killed it last night with huge volumes of Snow made on Eagle and Easy! We're still making snow this afternoon and the piles on the upper Mountain are monsters - this is officially the most snow we've ever made in March already, including 2010!

We started pushing snow this morning to be ready for opening tomorrow morning - Easy Rider will open for 9 AM. We'll be planning to make snow right through until opening tomorrow as the snowmaking window closes, so we'll wait to move the guns off Jasey Jay in the morning and plan to get Eagle Express open for 11 AM. Thursday we'll have everything turning for 9 AM.

With the big Snow last night we'll now plan to get Upper Jasey Jay open as well as Upper Maelle Ricker (Upper Fork) through the Fork Elbow, then down through the District area and out Lower Jasey Jay to the bottom of Eagle Express - all for Intermediate or Expert Skiers and Riders only.

Easy Rider will also be operating with Runway open for Beginners - should be some Big Fun after this unwelcome break in the season.

The Downhill Snow School will remain on standby until we open more beginner terrain.

Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoeing and the Tube Park will be closed until we receive more natural snow. Please stay in touch with our website for updates.

Anybody goes up to Cypress please report back. Considering Saturday morning to get some use out of this pass, unless it's all rocks.

Was up yesterday and the day before.
It's perfect greasy, soft, clean, spring snow; remarkable really. Not dirty with gravel like when they were trying to scrape the parking lot pile of shit over the mountain.

Barely any terrain open and no park. There are remnants of kickers can pop off. If you're satisfied with ripping fork and lower fork over and over, sure, I guess it's worth a couple hours if you just want to exercise your pass. Not worth it at all to pay real $ for a lift ticket.

EDIT: Their website says they have a park open now.

I went up on Monday. It's okay, only 1 run open and you need to get there for first chair and only have a good 4 hours max before the snow gets all chopped up and slushy.

My snow forecast app is calling for literally 200mm of rain all the way up whistler to go with about 8 cms of snow over the next few days. I was going to go saturday and ride park but sounds like its going to be pissing.

Definitely want to hear how Big White is. Considering a weekend up there to just get some riding in before the season totally ends everywhere.

^ it was 9 above yesterday. I went up last weekend and it's okay if you don't mind cruising groomers that turn to slush by noon. I'll be up again on Sunday if anyone wants a status report.
