day 1664 – boarding school

expected nothing short of crowds at cypress after some significant snowfall in the city. long lineups with freezing temperature, but still very fun learning how to carve properly. sunny day with lots of powder, but all the accumulated wipeouts are still pretty harsh. i’m slightly addicted to skiing and boarding and i want to keep going until the season end. but first, i have to stop at physio to fix up my whole body that’s beaten up from so much activity all week long; my physio will not be impressed that he has to attend to so many body parts

on cypress mountain doing what i ought to be doing in the winter season. this season, i changed it up and took up snowboarding as part of my 2016 to do list. it’s something i really wanted to add to my repertoire long ago, but was delayed due to commitments and parents restrictions. i didn’t learn with the best conditions, in fact, in one of the worst where the snowstorm was so strong it was blowing me uphill. some said that i was crazy for doing so in such conditions, but i wasn’t going to be picky and only saw it was a challenge. if i could pick it up in this condition, any normal condition would be a walk in the park. definitely want to hit the slopes again before vancouver winter season is all said and done

day 919 – night pow

the windstorm and unforeseen fog condition can’t stop us from our friday night riding. this is far from optimal learning conditions, but it simply gives me bigger test of adaptability. cypress had to put restrictions and close to lifts earlier than usual due to hailing, strong winds and low visibility. it was still a great night with my first boarding experience, not before a morning leg day gym session. am i ever asking for soreness

day 151 – cypress open to close

beauty overlooking cypress bowl from above in the night time. stayed up on the mountain from open to 7:30pm and skied on all the runs with a mixture of both beginners and super advanced totalling at least 25 runs. slope conditions were bad in morning but improved when it started snowing after noon. today must be a good day for skiing, bumped into so many different groups of people. wonder if i will still be able to move and do exercise tomorrow
