Aprilbruary 6th

The first weekend in February has arrived and conditions at Hood haven’t improved.  Joel and I rode all day on Super Bowl sunday getting up high on the Cascade lift (the highest lift on the mountain).  Winds were stiff as a warm front push out but the crusty surface was smoothed by a rain/sleet/snow storm […]

Brown Snow

Brown Snow

Joel, Ladd, Tara and I climbed out of the Portland clouds onto Meadows Sunday.  Patches of sun and softening snow held our attention all day.  I did little filming as we rode the Forest mini jib park and made laps on the half pipe once the high school comp was finished.  My attention was more […]

January Thaw Forest Park Laps

January Thaw Forest Park Laps

Pacific Northwest is currently stuck in a shitty winter cycle.  January started off with a bang with big bases and soft snow off trail.  The week following New Years brought inches of rain at 10,000ft and higher.  Riding Mt.Hood Meadows on the 23rd felt more like it was March or April 23rd.  It was a […]

Wallowa Mountains Prospect Mission

Wallowa Mountains Prospect Mission

Joel and I drove the six hour Friday night from Portland to the southern Wallowa range.  Maps make the area out to be very worth the gas and energy it take to cross the state.  I had been to the northern side of the range two years prior and Joel has worked in the northern side […]

Maine Christmas Snowboarding

A snowy Christmas in Maine this year.  We saw high winds delivering more than a foot of fresh snow across the state.  Getting around was a little difficult but Kelso and I still hit all the Maine riding essentials.  A Day at Sugarloaf with Lev and Jack prior to the storm, some night turns in […]

Mt.Adams Mini Drops 12-18-10

Got a day on the sleds in with Andreas at Mt.Adams. We worked our way up the 15miles of surprisingly smooth trail into the open riding areas as the fog lifted. Sun poked out and created some amazing light for two plus hours, just long enough for us to make some fun sled/shred laps. As […]

Meadows Dec 17th

Meadows Dec 17th

We had a fun crew of boys on the hill Saturday.  Dylan strapped in and lead the way proving that once you know the mountain… well, you know the mountains.  We took some laps through the steep trees in Heather Canyon and Private Reserve then lapped the skatepark wind lips finishing out a full day.
