The other day I hanging out at the Google Fremont campus, enjoying a lively #WordPress presentation by Kimberly Gauthier (KeepTheTailWagging.com) and happened to run across the Mervin Manufacturing Head Quarters! Their glowing florescent green logo caught my eyes! I spent 3 good seasons up at Mt Baker and Glacier WA during our epic La Nina season. Unfortunately, this season I haven’t spent much time up in the cascades due to the slushy rain.
I wanted to share this photo on here because I absolutely miss shredding Baker pow!
High Cascade just shared a video cut by Eero Ettala. While the snowbirds escape to Chile, us bromin escape to Timberline Lodge camping out in Gov! Well actually, the more fortunate just post up at High Cascade! (Lucky sombitches). November can’t come any quicker!
Mt. Baker Slush Cup 2012 continues the tradition sparked up in the early 1950’s, ”On July 4th of 1953 I went to Mt. Baker, Washington to film the Slush Cup. This was in the days when it was a real glacial pond and before it got shut down because of too many people trying for greatness while using chemicals in place of courage.” – Warren Miller [citation].
Very much like Mt. Baker Sesh Up, the grass roots tradition continues on July 21, 2012; come to the upper lodge parking lot and hike out to the pond just off Austin / Blueberry runs and enjoy the sun with a group of friends!
Shovel, beacon, probe, pack a lunch, 6 pack of beer and camera equipment; Mt. Baker’s backcountry ease of access from the upper parking lot is a short hike.
MountainHigh spends a good time out in Mt. Baker backcountry to FILM their latest video. Incredible riders include Erik Botner, Fredrik Evensen, Joacim Nyhaugen, and Quinn Joseph Baumberger. Most of the footage shot in this video I can easily identify, a few spots I’ve never seen before. But without a doubt, they took full advantage of Grandmas cabin!
I was browsing /r/snowboarding the other day when I discovered a Russian dumpling that goes by the name of Alyona Alekhina… I have never been more impressed in my life since my days of shredding with Y.D. Skate Team in little old Anacortes WA… Katharine and Jessica always bowl heshed with the guys! Ms. Alekhina, you rock!
Evan Applegate heads out east to Stevens Pass with riders Ted McColl, Jack McColl, and Ryan Tucker to shoot in some of the most beautiful conditions the Pacific Northwest can bring. You cannot deny the fact that March has treated us well!
