The first TEAM updEIGHT of the season! Thanks to Sugarloaf, Maine, for having a couple of amazing terrain parks set up! Chris and Tristan got at it with their new TEAM EIGHT boards. Check back for more videos throughout the season.
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 […]
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 […]
