Alaska Snowboarding RV Newbies

Alaska Snowboarding RV Newbies

Alaska, a snowboarding destination so talked about but so seldom traveled to by the resort populous.  The giant coastal mountains of Alaska are a far off land that are filled with dangers.  I’ll be the first to say that it’s easy to let natural road blocks stop a trip from becoming more than coffee shop […]

Dust On Crust Adams Big Lap

Dust On Crust Adams Big Lap

Andreas and I caught a beautiful snowmo-boarding day on Adams in mid March. The trail had enough snow coverage to get us up high and once there, the sun was out, keeping us and a fresh layer of snow warm.  There was just enough new snow to allow for fun snowboarding.  As it warmed, the […]

Park Day With The Portland Boys

Park Day With The Portland Boys

Mid March is here and spring is in full gear at the moment.  The snow on Hood has been soft and some fun features are setup in Forest park.  Saturday, we had a great crew making laps together.

Mt.Adams Lower Bench

Utah President’s Day Weekend

Utah President’s Day Weekend

We both have the travel and snowboarding bug right now, which are hard to satisfy when cooped up in […]

June-uary In The Northwest

June-uary In The Northwest

This is a long overdue post from mid January: Lately for me, posting to Big Flakes has been much like my work situation; too busy to enjoy what’s there, with not enough substance to report home about. This is both a reference to me being so slammed at work that I can’t keep track of […]

Icy Oregon Snowboarding

Icy Oregon Snowboarding

It’s January now and snowboarding isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Nikki was sitting at my kitchen table having to convince me that it was even worth going to ride last weekend. Mt.Hood has seen only rain during the month of December and the snow pack is thinner than in most year’s October […]
