Spring Eastern Washington Sled Trip

Spring Eastern Washington Sled Trip

This year’s sled and shred trip got pushed out to the spring riding season. Nikki was stuck working an on-site project, leaving me home alone for weeks-on-end with Sloan. When the project ended, I got the green-light to travel and started hunting snow forecasts. John, Kelso and I pooled energy to make a quick strike […]

This day was the day you wait for. There are a lot of days spent searching for deep enough snow to make a powder turn but few days when you go out and don’t expect to find what you do. We had ridden Mt.Hood the day before and the snow was too light and not […]

Late February Adams Deep Wind Blown Riding

February in the Northwest rolled in with restless old man winter finally finding his way to the bar after what seemed he had lost his way in December and January. I don’t have much media to share from the super premium four week storm cycle in February. Much of the month was spent ridding the […]
