Revelstoke, BC Trip

Revelstoke, BC Trip

I made it to Revelstoke! Andreas and I drove from Portland to Revelstoke, BC over the Presidents’ Day weekend. Just as conditions started to recover in the Northwest from the April-bruary thaw, we were leaving to drive 600 miles Northeast. The drive was a little misleading with lots of mountains but low elevation, which leads you to […]

Splitboarding a New Zone

Splitboarding a New Zone

Joel and I went out on Sunday February 27th to a small mountian between Mt.Admas and Mout St.Helens in Washington to get on our splitboards.  There has been lots of new Snow in Oregon and cooler temps so this low elevation (4200ft) run looked promision.  With my sled still being out of commision, Joel dragged […]

Aprilbruary 6th

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 […]

Brown Snow

Brown Snow

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 […]

January Thaw Forest Park Laps

January Thaw Forest Park Laps

Pacific Northwest is currently stuck in a shitty winter cycle.  January started off with a bang with big bases and soft snow off trail.  The week following New Years brought inches of rain at 10,000ft and higher.  Riding Mt.Hood Meadows on the 23rd felt more like it was March or April 23rd.  It was a […]

Wallowa Mountains Prospect Mission

Wallowa Mountains Prospect Mission

Joel and I drove the six hour Friday night from Portland to the southern Wallowa range.  Maps make the area out to be very worth the gas and energy it take to cross the state.  I had been to the northern side of the range two years prior and Joel has worked in the northern side […]

Riding In The New Year

Riding In The New Year

Al Brede and I rode in the New Year for 2011. We stayed with Taylor and Dylan in Parkdale and rode Meadows the day before, the day of and the day after New Years. The mountain had received lot of snow a few day prior but was quite firm by the time we got there. […]

Meadows Dec 17th

Meadows Dec 17th

We had a fun crew of boys on the hill Saturday.  Dylan strapped in and lead the way proving that once you know the mountain… well, you know the mountains.  We took some laps through the steep trees in Heather Canyon and Private Reserve then lapped the skatepark wind lips finishing out a full day.
