Icy Riding at Hood Meadows

Icy Riding at Hood Meadows

The snow has either melted down or blown off Mt.Hood in the past two weeks of sunshine.  Ladd, Dylan, Shaun Daley, Ryan, curly haired Al and I made the best of what is left, which happened to be a fun, firm set of wind-lips to hike just out of bounds.  A little sunshine made for […]

Hood Meadows Opening Day 2011/2012

Hood Meadows Opening Day 2011/2012

Saturday November 19th, Mt.Hood Meadows opened for the season after a cold front pushed through dropping three feet of new snow.  What was reported to be a very limited opening expanded last minute after another over night dump putting the base depth at 45inches.  Some of the major quads opened up and intermittent blue sky […]

Bryan and Scotty Talk Meadows

Bryan Fox and Scotty Wittlake filmed together last winter at Mt.Baker.  It sounds like the movie they produce will be right up the BigFlakes alley.  Pow slashes by Northwest riders on a low key, no budget format.  The Rascals is all about friends riding together and riding lots.  What will make this movie stand out […]

Last Weekend, Mt.Bachelor

Last Hood Meadows Ride

Last Hood Meadows Ride

Ladd, Al Brede and I rode Meadows today, May 8th, during a limited operations late season day.  The weather play games with us, blowing, snowing, shining and melting, off and on throughout the day.  The only thing consistent was the halfpipe.  Meadows does a poor job of building booters but their pipe is the best […]

Cornfest Oregon

Cornfest Oregon

The last weekend of April and the first in May.  That weekend marked what could be the first annual Cornfest Oregon.  Joel Parker, Matt Connors and I drove three hours south on a Friday night from Portland to Sisters, Oregon.  Joel had spotted another splitboard zone during a work trip servicing a snotel site.  We […]
