Sunny Park Laps in Feb

Sunny Park Laps in Feb

We had a really fun day riding Meadows last weekend despite no new snow in weeks.  Sunshine on the slopes and a sweet crew of guys lapping our big (intermediate at best) terrain park, made for a super fun day. We even got a jump!  Meadows managed to built a 20ft booter with their 100″ […]

Weathery January Weekend

Weathery January Weekend

A big storm finally hit the Northwest.  8-plus feet of snow at elevation but 3-plus inches of rain mixed in during and after the week long storm.  This short edit is from Late January, riding two different days with two different crews at Meadows.  The conditions and crowds were both hectic.  Driving winds kept the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bryan and Scotty Talk Meadows

Bryan Fox and Scotty Wittlake filmed together last winter at Mt.Baker.  It sounds like the movie they produce will be right up the BigFlakes alley.  Pow slashes by Northwest riders on a low key, no budget format.  The Rascals is all about friends riding together and riding lots.  What will make this movie stand out […]
