Sunset on Cypress

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

I got off work relatively early yesterday and had some spare time so I went up Cypress and did just over an hour of boarding. After just one run, the front clasp on my binding broke off! I lost a lot of control, but was able to push through another five runs. Without a doubt, my shortest day ever.

I was lucky to catch the sunset from atop this gorgeous mountain! the only camera I had with me though was my cellphone. Watch the quick video above – pretty good quality for a phone!

Oh, and here’s my GPS track:

Snowboarding at Cypress

Thursday, February 17th, 2011

Spencer and I went up after work yesterday and had an amazing time up there on Cypress! Some of the best snow we’ve ever seen up there! Really foggy at first, but it cleared up toward the end. We did 16 runs in the 2.5 hours that we were there. That’s an average of 9.4 minutes per run, including the 5-6 minute chairlift ride!

Only hit a max speed of 58km/h, but I pulled a 720, and hit some killer jumps with grabs!

There’s been a big mix-up with the Google Team who created the MyTracks app for GPS tracking these trails, and the Google My Maps team. Looks like they decided to discontinue supporting My Maps API, and to start using Google Fusion Tables instead. The MyTracks app team appears to have been caught off guard and is playing catch-up to fix this. For now, they’ve hooked it up so that we can upload our stuff to Fusion Tables, but it’s many extra steps in there to get my maps public so it’s become very frustrating. I hope them come up with a fix soon.
