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 […]

Sugarloaf East Coast Turns

Sugarloaf East Coast Turns

The 2013-2014 ski season has had a dismal start in the Northwest. Enough so that Kelso and I were tempted into dragging our snowboard gear back to Maine for a Christmas vacation riding day at Sugarloaf. Neither of us had ridden the Loaf in three seasons, so the idea of returning to our stomping grounds, […]

Friday Pow In March

Friday Pow In March

I have two images and a short story to share. Last week I returned from the Montana “Swanvoyage” vacation and got back to business.  I have a new schedule at work now, my employer granted me Fridays off to work on Dresm.  This new schedule proved itself quite valuable this past Friday.  The weather shifted cold mid-week and the rain […]

Sunny Tuesday On Mt.Adams, WA

Sunny Tuesday On Mt.Adams, WA

The Northwest finally transitioned out of the six week, mid-winter, high pressure hole and back to a more normal state of tree-well paranoia.  Over the past week, a storm system came in multiple waves with fairly light and very deep snowfall, 40 inch in total.  Welcome back powder boarding. This edit was shot on a Tuesday spent […]

Meadows Park Riding

Meadows Park Riding

The Northwest is still suffering from the mid-winter blah.  Every year we sit for weeks and wait patiently for our wet weather to return and deliver more powder.  You may think it sounds selfish to ask for powder but the reality of riding exposed volcanos like mt.Hood, is that groomed snow dosen’t hold well.  Heavy winds, blasting sun and large expanses of […]
