Not when discussing a ski resort in Europe.

Usually referred to in the case of rain.
The problem with your casually adopted contrarianism is that, amusing though it may be, it’s so easily rebuffed. Google ‘bucketing down snow’ and you get at least two results from Australian websites on the first page alone

Let it go Steve, let it go.

Anyway, we always say it’s puking down when it’s snowing heavily.

I've decided to turn my old powder board into a splitboard.
Going to get it water jet cut, if possible.
So I actually started doing this today, but just with a hacksaw.

It's a very wide board so I'm not worried about losing a bit with the dodgy cutting.

Going to try and do it on the cheap, using part of the Voile DIY kit.
It'll be heavy and ugly but will give me an introduction.

I anticipate multiple fuckups and additions to the Blokey thread.

What about buying a Japanese pull saw? Thinner kerf and more accurate cut.

The hacksaw was just to get through the metal rails.
I spent most of my time building an MDF template that bolts into the existing bindings to keep the cut straight.

Might get one of those pull saws.

After further consideration of a number of factors I've abandoned the DIY splitboard project and turned it into a snurfer instead.
Been scoping out lines in local parks.
