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.

Boarded 40km today and hit a max speed of 71 km/h! A good group of just five of us… lots of snow falling on the mountain, and it continues to fall down in the lower mainland today!

First, here’s my GPS tracks:

Snowboarding Cypress

Friday, April 9th, 2010

A couple nights ago, Cypress got an amazing 55cm dump of snow so Tim and I just couldn’t resist! We went up on Friday afternoon for 3 hours and I managed to squeeze in 16 runs. It was pretty awesome conditions, and it was my first and likely last time up my local hill for this season! I tracked myself at 40km and a max speed of 66.60 km/hr.
