Pre-Christmas Powder in Heather

Pre-Christmas Powder in Heather

The BBT (brother brother team) made it to Mt.Hood for one last attack before our travels back East for Christmas.  The snow condition have been so good in the Northwest throughout December that my camera has remained zipped up in my pocket.  Flowing powder turns have a way of taking over control, forcing out any distractions.  This day […]

December Drop to Knee Pain

December Drop to Knee Pain

It was a fun weekend at Meadows this weekend to welcome December 2012.  It’s finally feeling like winter in the Cascades as of Sunday night when the freezing levels dropped down to 4000ft.  Over a foot of fresh snow fell over the weekend.  This made for two scary realities, lift lines and rider confidence.

Ben Ipsen and […]
