Everyone’s starting to get amped up for the Winter and thinking POW, so I think it’s time to start sharing the goods from last year (as I think about where to get my August ski in this Saturday). The edit below was sent over by Jackson Blackburn, who rides for our bro’s over at Live 2 Ride Snowboards. Jackson, believe it or not, is somewhat new to the sport of riding snow, let alone waist deep POW. Back at the start of the 2011/2012 season, Jackson, left his home state of Connecticut for Washington, where he rode powder for the first time. Jackson has been hooked ever since that fine powder day. So hooked, he lives out of his 96 Subaru sedan all Winter long traveling up and down the Cascades chasing pow and good times.
