First Time Up Adams in 2012

First Time Up Adams in 2012

Joel and I finally ventured up to mt.Adams last weekend (2/12/12) after seeing that Meadows got 8″ of fresh at 6500 feet and up.  There was a good snowpack down low so we rode the lower road out to the Lahar.  Firm trails required a few breaks for the machines to cool and scratches were […]

Sunny Park Laps in Feb

Sunny Park Laps in Feb

We had a really fun day riding Meadows last weekend despite no new snow in weeks.  Sunshine on the slopes and a sweet crew of guys lapping our big (intermediate at best) terrain park, made for a super fun day. We even got a jump!  Meadows managed to built a 20ft booter with their 100″ […]

Weathery January Weekend

Weathery January Weekend

A big storm finally hit the Northwest.  8-plus feet of snow at elevation but 3-plus inches of rain mixed in during and after the week long storm.  This short edit is from Late January, riding two different days with two different crews at Meadows.  The conditions and crowds were both hectic.  Driving winds kept the […]

Cle Elum, WA Expedition

Cle Elum, WA Expedition

Joel, Kelso and I loaded up the new crew rig for a weekend of Washington backcountry exploration in mid January.  Kelso, not messing around, ditched the idea of an old 4×4 van as a winter vehicle/snowmobile hauler and went with a more reliable and capable towing vehicle, as seen in this edit.  Let’s just say […]

Dirksen Derby

Dirksen Derby

This year was the 5th annual Dirksen Derby, a foundraiser held by Josh Dirksen in Bend at Mt.Bachelor.  Prime powder conditions at mt.Hood in years past has kept me from attending this event but this year’s rock hard, thin snowpack, left me with no excuses. Tara, Kelso and I drove to Bend for what is […]
