The sun is out this morning, bright white slopes, a good day for bombing down the fresh groomers before they get too chopped up. Temperatures are around -4 and there is a slight breeze.

The Half-pipe in Asagai Snowboard Park actually opened last week on Wednesday, a bit late this year due to lack of snow. It takes a lot of snow to get a good shape on a decent sized Half-pipe, especially this one - with it's usual size measuring in at 3.5m radius transitions and 110m length. Hence the pipe still has an 'open' shape - not good for airing out of the top of, venturing out of the top of the pipe in an airborne mode at the moment will likely cause outside pipe landings or nasty hang-ups (when the board gets caught on the lip and the body continues back into the pipe (a 4 meter drop) usually causing acute pain of some kind!). In short (cutting the jargon), the shape sucks.

Well, here's hoping for more snow in this coming week.
