Great day, snowing all morning. Crowd is less than expected. There are more people in the lift lines than on the slopes, due to 2/chair policy. People mostly behaving in organized and safe manner. 

Done with the on-snow staff training, after the lunch break I have to walk them around the base area and lodges... 

One of the new guys is really good, trainer material, I'd say.

Two staff "on foot" sessions, today, with enough time to ride in between 🙂 I teamed up with Patrick for about 6 runs. 

One guy inquired about HB for splitboarding. He's serious - texted me already. 

Conditions: mix of hard and somewhat softer. 

Toy: a new to me Elan Vertigo Ti 162. It's quite awesome. Kind of old school BX with modern materials. 

Possibly big pow coming tonight 🤞

Wasn't too bad, yesterday... 

I'm on the hill already. Drizzle... 

PM edit: I rode in the rain from 10:30 to 12. Few laps with Patrick. No lineup. Snow was actually sorta ok, but Panorama has a brown patch now, too. We need more snow, pronto. 

I still have to survive another staff training session from 1:30...

oh shit, that's mine. time to contact the WVPD & see if there's anything that can be done... 

I hope you have some old photos and invoices. I guess you reported it when it got stolen? 

On the other hand, it would be fun to respond to the ad and then we go kick the crap out of that lowlife 😡

Yeah, no problem definitively ID'ing the board. I've contacted WVPD with the original case file info; will see what transpires. I'd assume (a year later) that this wouldn't be the original perp, but the fact he's saying it was purchased new is certainly shady.

Bluebird day, pretty good grooming of the 24hr old snow! I rode all day with @Cousin of Beagle. Linup was anything between 15 and 30 minutes. We managed about 12 runs until 2pm. 

Toys: B - OES SL, Cous - Salomon Men's(?) 

We saw a patrol guy on h/boots and a squaretailed board! Also, my skier friends Lani and Randy are back to Cypress, this season... 

Hey, Tony, post one of the better pics here?

Light rain at the base, wet snow on top of the Lions. Kind of wants to turn to snow at the base too. Hill has definitely received some snow recently, problematic spots are close to getting covered. 

Otherwise, we had a good staff training session... 

Tool: 3800 163.

A weird day... It started pretty hard packed/frozen, with big lineups (but not like last Thursday!). Then it got foggy, then the wind started and slowly brought a snow storm with it. By 1pm it was snowing like crazy already. Funny enough, the crowd kinda dispersed, from the late am and on. 

I rode with Patrick for the most of the day. We were lapping the runs around the Eagle whole morning (Pano into Windjammer the best), then the Raven chair opened! There were literally no people in the lineup! Pretty decent snow with gentle contouring, like large waves, on the Crazy Raven, then some brown (but not rocky) stuff towards the bottom. 

After Patrick left, I switched to Lions, to go up to the Sky. Glades were good! It's filling up really quickly up there. 

Tools: P-MK, B-Tanker

B and Cous came to play. One hated the conditions and went home, the other one was hopeful and got rewarded... You guess who stayed 😉

Morning was all light, but not thick enough, freshies over frozen nastiness. However, with the snow coming down heavily, becoming wetter/heavier and pushed into piles, it became way nicer to ride! The Sky was actually very nice! 

By 2pm, I had 20cm layer of snow on my car. 

The toy: 3800

      2006 Burton Fish 160 (wood veneer topsheet) 
      $250 shipped  CONUS
      N 31.6   W 25.8  T 28.6  scr 8.24  stance 20"  3" back
      Bought this 3 years ago, new, in plastic, never ridden. Rode it a handful of times, not a scratch on it.  Rode it at the 1st MCC  powder carving event in waist deep. Really a softboot board, but worked great with soft (Raichle 313) hardboots and flexy Carve rs bindings. Really nice board for deep powder, in trees, or anywhere there's fresh snow. Super turny, surfy, with lots of taper so nose will never sink. Just okay on the groomers back to the lift. 
      That's wax on the bottom.

      I haven't been riding much the last few years so it might be time to thin the heard.
      180cm JJA Cypress - ridden twice. The board is in excellent condition. Includes the JJA plate and two 3 degree Bomber TD3 BP version base plates. I know some of the JJA's had issues with insert alignment and pull-out. I've played with the position of the plate and baseplates on multiple occasions and have never had any issues. I don't know which factory manufactured this board, but I do know it was in the first batch of boards made commercially available in the US. Serial number 0180 0158.
      Price $1200 OBRO + shipping or pick-up in Denver.
      SOLD - 161 Coiler SL - ridden once. This is a copy of the board that Bruce built himself and won the nationals in ~2013. Sidewall engraving: T161SL 014DT - 6.8+11. The waist width is 20cm.
      SOLD - Price: $700 OBRO + shipping or pick-up in Denver.

      Here is my beloved custom Donek Incline, specced out by Sean @ Donek himself. It's an aggressive carving/powder board that I bought as my main board last month in November 2020. 
      It's in great condition, there are no big scrapes/chips and I took very good care of it. It's really wide (29.5) so if you have big feet (11+) this is a great board for you. The reason I'm selling it is because I realized that it's a bit too long for the type of riding I want to do this season. Other than that I love it. It lays down carves like no other.
      Model: Donek Incline
      -165cm Length
      -29.5cm Waist Width
      -Sidecut: 9-11cm (VSR)
      -Custom Hammerhead Shape (Nose & Tail)
      -Stiffness: 8/10
      -Pure Camber
      $800 OBO - Let me know for offers and trades

      I'm selling my Swoard Extreme Carver PRO.
      I've had it for years, but I've only ridden it once and immediately decided to buy something a bit smaller instead. It's still in near mint condition.
      Asking for $500USD, including shipping to Canada or the US.
      Length: 175cm, Flex: Soft

      I thought maybe this would go in "videos" but that's "videos of people carving" and there's not a lot of carving here, but it is "all mountain" hard booting.
      This is a Burton Skeleton Key 154, F2 Race Titanium bindings, Atomic Backlands with Phantom Levers.

      Excellent condition, as I have only used it on rare occasions on perfect groomers early in the morning. It's been sitting in my locker for a few years, so it's time for me to get rid of it.
