Fixed.....
And no.
Was at Mt. baker this weekend. It was ok. Snowed a bit but way too warm. Stayed in a rad cabin though, and smoked weed for the first time in probably a year since its legal there and I wanted to be a good law abiding citizen.

I rolled in late to Big White yesterday, hit the Gem lift line at 11ish and after my first run the line was completely gone so by the time 3:30 rolled around I had done 13 runs without stopping, all blacks or trees except my last run. I'm paying for it today but holy shit has this season been good.

Was up at Cypress today, it snowed quite a bit on our way up. Wasn't busy at all either, no line up for lift tickets and little to no line up for the lifts but picked up a little bit in the afternoon

320icar, are you at Whistler today? I think I saw your car while you were getting your gear on.

Fucking all time day at powder mountain. Freezing level stayed low, snow was light, and there was about 50-60cm of fresh from friday that hadn't been touched. Pricey, but worth every penny.

damn it, how do i pick a proper snowboard boots.

my regular shoe size is 11, ive stepped down to size 10 for my board boots, after it packs out and now its too big for me. Heel lift and i cant do any carve at all.

i've rented a 9.5 at cypress and it was too tight for me.... grr...

im now shoppipng for a new one but honestly i dont know how i should begin. Should i stick to the same brand and just step down from size 10 to size 9.5 ?

the boots i owned right now is Burton MOto

It shouldn't be that complicated. Try them on, prepare for them to pack out maybe 1/2 a size at most. Just buy boots that fit. That includes width and instep, not just heel to toe. I wear sz 9 shoes and sz 9 boots.

Just wear more socks....

I don't know I have used Rome boots for the last like 6 years, I usually wear them around the house as much as possible for a couple days to flex them out and pack em in. Then take them to the shop to get heat molded to my feet, and usually by the 2nd or third day on them they are perfect and comfy as all hell.

I guess I just know now that I am a size 10.5 in Rome Boots, so I don't even try them on when I grab a new pair.

If I didn't get as good of a price as I did, I would probably have gotten TM-Two. Same fit when I was jumping around the store, just a tiny bit heavier (and less space-age looking which actually is a good thing).

I was in Whistler yesterday and the top half of the mountain was soft pack snow with powder sections in the bowls. The very bottom section after mid station is all slush. So anything in-between is hard pack/icy.

Looks like I'm not going to get to ski at all this month, I knew I never should have agreed to 10 days in Mexico during primo ski season.

I now own a Jones Hovercraft.
It's really good at drawing big squiggles in the snow.

If there was ever a time to call in sick and run to Whis, the time is now.



The Blackcomb side (Spearhead) is going to be getting a touch more still.

That with one button push online at store.whistlerblackcomb.com, the previous owner can deactivate the card.

That the lifties at Base2, Village, and Creekside have ipads that show the passholder's photo when they first upload.

Yep, but you can add both the ski and board one to your cart for $0 and the shipping is still $12 USD

So I spent all of Sunday in Whistler again. There's a tonne of snow up top. Some sections around symphony is waist deep. I spent the whole day on the Whistler side. It became really icy on almost every narrow green run. More specifically expressway from the top of creekside gondola to the top of crapple. From crapple down, it's all slush. Visibility was shit from the peak2peak and up most of the day.

For those with experience going to Cypress in March, is it possible for a Genesis Coupe (turbo RWD) with stock all seasons tire to drive up to the parking lot? I plan on going this weekend. The car doesn't even accelerate with 1 inch of snow within Vancouver so it's pretty bad.
