The Roxa Rx 1.0

This is a fun one from around this past March 15th, 2019. All seen through the hc lens of Andrew Eckels, playing off Highway 542 (in the Mighty Mt. Baker zone). Hoping we get another blast of pow, before it all passes, as the mountains are melting out quickly. Think a little more powder dayz! 🙂

The Roxa Rx 1.0

Spent a few days in the low angle trees of Snoqualmie Pass with HanSolo. It was cold and quiet.

Looking towards Mt. Catherine aka Hyak bc 🙂

With all of the snow that fell from the massive Snowmageddon 2018, along with the Colorado type, super cold temps, I thought a trip into the trees were necessary. I rode the East Peak Chair Lift for a bump start (Sun, 2/24/19), then skied down Milwaukee Ridge to connect with the criss cross network. Hitting Union Station, for an easy crossing over Mill Creek (which can be tough at times). I climb up under the North Face in the lower trees, doing a little yo-yo skiing, with a finish in the lower bowl (you see from the Hidden Valley Chair). Punched out through the young growth and found a crossing made easier by two others – an hour or so earlier. Thanks for finding the easy way, guys!

Jerad blasting through the Ewok Forest.

The first day of lift served skiing at The Little Beast from the East – Summit East, following Snowmageddon 2018, Jerad Merbs, Tyler Powers and myself jumped on the light cycles :-). To search for un-tracked pow. It was a toss up to hit the Hidden Valley or go search in the trees. I think we made the right choice as the beginner ski skinners pretty much rocked out all open slopes. So stoked to see the sport growing so much! Live to Ski Another Day!

Finding the goods off Windy Ridge.

Nearing the end of Snowmageddon 2018 on Snoqualmie Pass, we decided to hit the “Closed” I-90 to get some lift served skiing at Mission Ridge. On Valentines Day (Mon, 2/14/19), we got the sweetest treat – waist deep, champagne powder and the lifts were spinning at Summit Central. However, the following day, we received 31 inches in 24 hours, which shut us down completely. This included power, too! Thank goodness, Dru Bru has a generator and the community gathered to compare notes and use the wifi.

 

Allison and myself rolled out at 7pm ish, and got on the completely quiet interstate 90. We didn’t see one single vehicle of any kind, until Cle Elum. Then only seeing 3 from there to the junction of Hwy 97 and Hwy 2. Wild! The following morning we hit the second of the two day ski demo, Mission Ridge was holding for the WSSRA. As you will see from the video below we had great weather and the end result was a kick-ass time! Thanks Mission Ridge (one of the 7 Gems that make up our Cascade Crown of ski areas).

Dru Bru-Ski day!.

Ran in for a quick beer at Dru Bru (Tues, 2/5/18), then quickly found myself tracking down the Dru Bru Crew (minus Tim, who was keeping the ship a float), to join in some sun and fun. 🙂 I soon found everyone by the fire pit on Summit Central’s plaza, then did some shredding (on the somewhat firm conditons).

Juicing the pow to the base of the Little Beast.

Just a quick walk with the pups to get some exercise and ski a little pow. By the time we made it up, Roz’s Run was banged out, from the popular sport of ski skinnin’, but fun. However, on the following lap, off East Peak, I found the freshies!

Alpental ski patrol with some of the basics of the “Back Bowls”.

We lucked out for the New Year, with Alpental Patrol gifting us the Nash Gate, to access the goods for the first time off the Great Scott Traverse. Another surprise was the posting up of patrollers at the gate, checking beacons and Back Bowl passes. This stopped one hundred or so skiers and riders for the first lap, giving Karter and myself time to cherry pick our lines. It was very dreamy in places as you’ll see in the vid.

Just in time for Christmas, the green light was given to open the lower part of Alpental on 12/23/18. The conditions were dust on crust, but actually skied far better than I’d expected. Think big SNOW!

Seven days past our average opening up here on Snouqulmie Pass, we finally loaded the lifts at Summit West. December 14th was the day it happened, we most certainly would have enjoyed a banger powder opening but just to be skiing at home lift served, was good enough for us.
