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 […]

Crystal Mountain New Years Powder

Crystal Mountain New Years Powder

I drove north to Crystal Mountain, WA for New Years 2012.  Friend and Mt.Hood shred buddy Chris Gius was there visiting Family at Crystal, the mountain he grew up riding.  Chris was an awesome host and provided me with places to sleep and one on one guide service for three days on the mountain. The […]

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 […]

Sam’s Alaska Trip

Sam Wolff took a real shred trip this winter, he did Tailgate Alaska.  I talked with Sam upon his return home to Salt Lake in Late April and he gave a quick rundown of the trip.  Tailgate sounded like a true adventure that involves more fuel and driving than the average snowboard can fathom.  Lots […]

Last Weekend, Mt.Bachelor

Last Weekend, Mt.Bachelor

I can’t say it’s the end of the season with the lifts still spinning at Timberline and even at Mt.Bachelor, who will stay open until the end of May but for me this was it.  I finished off the 2010-2011 season last weekend (May 14-15) riding Mt.Bachelor in Bend, OR with Al Brede.  It was […]

Vintage Surf Style

Comune team manager Cory Smith appears in this sweet edit titled Spring Break, featuring killer pow turns on handmade decks.  The wooded classics they shaped ain’t no polished TeamEight deck but they look really fun in the right conditions.  After watching this video my one question was, how did they get to the top of […]

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 […]
