Splitboarding The Slot Couloir on Snoqualmie Mountain

March 21st, 2014 the #peakoftheweek crew decided it was great conditions to tackle The Slot Couloir on Snoqualmie Mountain. We woke up early trying to beat as much sun as we could on the skin up. The conditions could not have been better. There seemed to have been a group that toured either earlier that morning or the day prior that got tracks before us, but throughout the whole day we saw no one. It was perfect and exactly what us office warriors needed. After a day of great pow turns in the sun, we headed for the best corn dogs on this earth. They were even better after a great day of touring. Hope you enjoy.

Enjoying Stevens Pass Springfest 2011 (Debauchery & Pond Skim)

Max and friends enjoyed a snowy day of springfest. Enjoying some brews with the van bros, some sweet lines in the park and a nice smooth skim across the pond… what more could you ask for?

Snowboarding at Stevens Pass – February 13th, 2011

Our friend Brendan was in from Philly. We had a great day on the mountain. Chris, Rob and myself took an avalanche awareness class at Stevens Pass the day before. The class was great and definitely makes me feel a lot more comfortable hiking into the backcountry. Chris and I have been trying our hand at snow shoeing and also got our beacon/probe/shovel set. I can’t wait for Jackson Hole.

The track in the video is “Edge of Extremes” by Clubfeet.
