Cornfest Oregon

Cornfest Oregon

The last weekend of April and the first in May.  That weekend marked what could be the first annual Cornfest Oregon.  Joel Parker, Matt Connors and I drove three hours south on a Friday night from Portland to Sisters, Oregon.  Joel had spotted another splitboard zone during a work trip servicing a snotel site.  We […]

April Sunshine

April Sunshine

I would say it’s full-on spring here in Oregon and the park riding is prime but that’s not exactly true.  This edit is from the 18th, a 45° day riding park at Meadows.  It was a beautiful day and really fun riding with Al Brede and Joel Parker.  The only bummer about the day is […]

Chris Owen’s April Mt.Hood Trip

Chris Owen’s April Mt.Hood Trip

My good friend and Montana State roommate came out to Oregon from Minessota to extend his snowboard season.  While in college Chris Owens and I put in a lot of days on the hill together, riding Big Sky and Bridger Bowl.  It’s been five years since we made turns with one-another but it felt like […]

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 […]
