Mt.Bachelor Opening Day 2012

Mt.Bachelor Opening Day 2012

Along with most of the Northwest ski resorts, Mt. Bachelor opened for the season this Thanksgiving, 2012.  A big system pushed into the Northwest days before the holiday weekend.  A mixed bag of weather left the ski community cringing but in the end, the cold weather finished thing off with a bang. Ben Ipsen and […]

Resident Shred 2012

Resident Shred 2012

Resident Shred 2012 was a success.  The idea was a two day shred sesh at Timberline in mid July, a little camping and abundant sunshine. Kelso, Kelsey and I rode with two different crews during two sunny days riding the Timberline public park.  The snow had been melting fast and the halfpipe, feeling the affects, […]

Last Day at Meadows

Last Day at Meadows

Last day at Meadows was May 7th, 2012. This edit was slow to produce due to the Dresm workload taking it’s toll on any computing time. The “last day” edit is finished now though and only good vibes are the bi-product. Good vibes and my shoulder injury I guess. The injury actually made this edit […]

Mount St.Helens Spring Hip

Mount St.Helens Spring Hip

Kelso and I have been talking up “jump building” all season with nothing to show until now. The last weekend in April we took sleds out to Mount St.Helens for a 50+ degree day in search of a wall to build a hip on. We found the wall but the build on this wall took […]

April Hip at Meadows

April Hip at Meadows

April on Hood has been very spring like. After a cold and deep March with over 15feet of new snow, April has brought a quick spring shift. It’s been a warm month with lots of rain and warm weather quickly melting the snow pack. Personally, I’ve been super busy this spring and not riding as […]

Spring Day on St.Helens

Spring Day on St.Helens

Kelso, Andreas and I rode at St.Helens the first weekend in April. The snowpack was really deep but fairly firm from a warm-up earlier in the week. I hadn’t been up there in two seasons and was really excited to play on the big open canvas that Helens can be on a sunny day. We […]

I watched this Steven’s Pass edit on YoBeat and had to share it. The powder is great, terrain looks awesome and the riding is really, really strong. The post description on YoBeat is also really good, it caught my attention and is pasted below. YOBEAT.com POST DESCRIPTION: Dear East Coast/Midwest: We’re very sorry your season […]

Weekday Powder, Rabbit Rabbit

Weekday Powder, Rabbit Rabbit

This Footage is from a Thursday on March first at Mt.Hood Meadows. Kelso, Tara, Ben (their IDL work associate) and I, all played hooky for one of the lightest and deepest days I’ve seen on Mt.Hood. There was sad realization early in the day that Meadows does not have steep enough terrain (when Heater Canyon […]
