Would you rather be rich or famous?

22 Nov

How about we take that one step at a time. Rich, to build up the bus, and then the fame would come naturally along with that. Think about it: you would be hard-pressed nowadays to find a snowboarder who doesn’t know about the Greasebus up in the Northwest.

A Sad Day.

18 Nov

Yesterday, Appalachain Ski Mountain released the official report of what we all already knew and dreaded: they would not be opening on the scheduled opening day. The resort had stayed optimistic, and did not make their standpoint official that they would not be opening tomorrow until yesterday. In other news, the snowpack laid down recently by Ski Sugar and Cataloochee is dwindling, with not even enough rideable patches at Sugar, and a constantly narrowing trail at Cataloochee. The season started strong, but is dying now. We just have to wait for the right temperatures and enough of the natural stuff to fall to be able to ride.

Here’s the links, should you wish to see:

Very depressing at the current moment. However, at the time of publishing this, Ski Sugar has temperatures appropriate for being able to blow snow, in the mid 30s with low humidity.

Who Says Snowboarders Aren’t Deep?

12 Nov

Snowboarders, for the most part, are looked upon by society as deviants and miscreants, and all around the spawn of Satan set about to terrorize mountain towns and trash apres bars. Well, we aren’t, as this forum thread shows.

Make sure to read both pages, and read all of the posts. ALL OF THEM, even the long, 7 paragraph essay.

 

So, second year running, NC opens before NY.

8 Nov

So. The season down here is official, and the NC shred scene is gearing up for another winter. Cataloochee and Sugar opened this past weekend, with the rest of the resorts soon to follow.

For the second year running that I’m aware of, North Carolina resorts are opening before the ones in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, and whatever states you want to lump into that statement. (I have not fact-checked any of these statements. Don’t get up in my grillz if they aren’t true.)

So that’s how its going down for all ya’ll who care to check the links. If you didn’t, I will inform you that it is going down EPICALLY. Please vote.

It goes well.

For the most part, things have been going well for the past week. Slow, but well, with really nothing new to report. Anybody have anything interesting to say or share, contact: tburns@cctlec.org

I Retract my Statement

29 Oct

We have found Ben Sutton. That is right, we have found him, the search is over. Thank you all for your hard work.

Mr. Benjamin Sutton

29 Oct

We know you are out there, Ben Sutton. I’ve met you before, Ben Sutton. For God’s sake, is there not one place on the Internet where I can find your email?

Anybody else have his email, please send it to me.

Does anybody know this man?

28 Oct

THIS GUY. If anybody knows him or finds him, please sling me his contact information so we can get in touch with him. He lives around here, we know that, we just don’t know WHO he is.

It is our bus. We hope.

28 Oct

Here it is. It says $3700 OBO. At the moment we have spoken with the owner of the bus, Grant, and it seems for a down payment of around $1000, he will let us have the bus on an extended payment plan. An extended payment plan with money that we don’t have (yet). This is where the public interest comes in, and we need public donations, corporate donations, anything any of you readers can throw at us.

Please.
