  • My vid from our 2011 season

    Just a vid i did of a mate and myself on our week at the snow in aug last year. He was on a snowboard and i was on my DLPs. Both of our first times in the park and my first season ever on anything other than a snowboard lol

    Figured since there is talk of people needing to put their stuff up I might as well.
    Plus its taken me since then to cut all the footage down for it :P
    Hopefully it doesnt bore you all too much!

    Very cool! What was the deal with the guy at the top of the run playing the accordion? Never seen that before...

    And I really liked the gates to enter the lift loading zone. I wouldn't mind seeing those at any of the places I've been here in the states!

      Your resort doesn't have an accordion player?

                I remember Durango (Purgatory) Mountain having those. That's the only place that I've been where they had gates.

                    Thanks guys and girls!

                    I had alot of fun making it and going through all the footage and re-living our trip So many fun/funny moments!

                    I dont know what the accordion player was about :S he was funny though and made everyone laugh!
                    And the gates we have on I'd say 90% of our lifts here... they help alot too when the snow is fairly high and the line slopes down to the lifts... gives you something to lean on/stop from if there is several ppl beside you and you cant pizza stop.

                    And yeah my mission for this year is to hit some of the bigger jumps and (20fters) and hit the boxes sideways. I was a bit sketchy then, being my first decent time on the boards, plus I hurt my knee 2 weeks before so was trying not to aggravate it by stacking too hard haha

                    I also am not used to the jumping feeling of jumping by lifting my knees up... so i was trying to jump like i was skipping with a rope. So this year I'm working on being quicker on my feet and getting that jumping motion down pat in the off season so i can get into it this season coming

                    Really looking forward to it!

                    Hoping we are going to have a decent season this year too, but not getting to excited... last year was awesome at the start, then really crap from mid season on. Although we had snow on the mountains two days ago. Its normally between 77F - 104F (25-40C) here at this time of year and its been pretty moderate temps lately, but two days ago it dropped to about 64F (18C) with a cold snap and snowed! It was only a light dusting and was gone by that night due to the warm ground but still weird!

                      What's the name of the mountain next to the blue lake?

                        I'm not even sure if it has a name?? I assume it would but not positive. Its not used due to not enough coverage as its not as high as falls creek itself i believe. i might have to investigate that one as there is a 4wd track that goes around the back of it....
