Another epic day on MSH with Kris and Luke splitboarding! Great snow conditions, blue skies, and smiles ear to ear!

I'm so thankful Mt. St. Helens is in my backyard, and so proud to call it my home mountain. Here's to many more trips!

Mt St Helens Splitboarding

Went out splitboarding. So refreshing to be in these mountains with all this snow. Beautiful! Got to about 6,000' then the weather closed me out. Still need tech, a GoPro. Celly pics for now, still.

We Need More Snow

It's been in weird season here on Hood. It's been hard to catch a deep powder day all season. I want some bottomless. I tried to wish this upon myself the other day, rode about 6" of new, on top of concrete. Had to be careful out there when slashing still, or you'd slash right down to the concrete, and...scorch out. Still fun though, I found some stashes!

Tried my new hi-tech filming equipment out too; a Walmart clip-on iPhone fish eye lens and a selfie stick. I really need to upgrade my tech before I ruin, or lose my iPhone. haha

From the Archives

It's hard to catch a good powder day when the freezing level goes from 4,000ft to 8,000ft in just a few hours. Hoping to catch one though, on a day I'm available. I need one. Check me and Mikey. I'm on edge. haha

Mt Hood Village

We took the family out for an early season ballroom carpet session at Mt. Hood Meadows. Snowboarding is FUN, and this little hut has inspired me! More info to come!

Here's to another season!!! And, to getting these little gals to enjoy the shred!!!!

Janu'April.

It's NUKING on Hood right now! Rode line after line of some great snow. No GoPro, no tech; just my iPhone and my Macbook from the year 2000. Blue Airblaster coat and Dino's Will Die board day. No to work. Yeee!

Storm riding is the best.

Timberline, ORE

Pa' got a POW day!

Made another solo trip this last Friday up to Timberline Lodge. It had been dumping all week long, I couldn't resist! There was a TON of new snow, and mild wind. I rode my Nirto Treehugger 149; what a fun board! You can rage through the powder on this thing, slash at ease, and butter, and spin in the pow like you can't believe. This board was so much FUN! For a 149, it rides like a 165.

I made lap after lap pow surfing and slashing with this thing! I must be honest though, there are still plenty of bare spots, exposed creeks, and thin spots on Mt. Hood. One of my favorite tree runs off of Molly's down to Pucci still had an exposed creek I had to side skirt. 10' lower and I would've been in a tough situation.

I don't have a GoPro, or the tec to support one - so I guess it's just going to be iPhone photos/selfies from here on out. My Macbook is prob from 1998 or so too I'd guess; one of the old white ones. Trudge, on!!!

Great day.

Also, thank you to Spark R&D for hooking me up with a Pro Plan. I can't wait to get pin-less! Also, thank you Voile, and BCA for the continued Pro Plan support!

Ski Bowl : Mt. Hood

Took the trip up to Mt. Hood Ski Bowl last Sunday with Da'Juice Crew! Love these ladies. We left SW WA around 1pm and got after the 3-10pm shift. After all, Ski Bowl touts being the largest night riding area in the USA.

My 6 year old was begging to go to "Mountain Hood" all morning.

"But I have school all week daddy, and I want to go snowboarding! If we don't go today, I won't be able to go until next weekend." How could I say, no?! She did pretty good, but is still learning. She had a lot of fun, and that's the most important part!

I rode my Great Dudes of  History, 156, Jah Rasta Haile Selassie YES board this trip. Man I LOVE this board. I forgot how fun it was to ride.

Everyone was hyping this storm all weekend long, when up until this point, only 6" of new snow had fallen. Mt. Hood needs some help - keep it coming! Can't wait to get out again.

Great day!
