Greg, Carmani and Carlos getting ready to find the untracked powder!

Pretty stoked to see Carlos Boozer snowboarding at the Summit at Snoqualmie, for the third time this season? That was wild because, Carlos is from Miami, FL and only comes up here once a month to visit family. However, he also makes a point to visit the Summit at Snoqualmie on those monthly trips, too. You probably know of Carlos from the hardwood, crushing hoops for teams like, the Cavaliers, Jazz, Bulls, Lakers and 2 time Team USA (helping bring home 1 gold and 1 bronze). Oh yeah along with crushing the freshly covered slopes of Summit Central, he has also been a 2 time NBA all star. As you will see in the video he and his son, Carmani, are natural athletes, being new to the sport of riding snow and ALREADY finding a great time in our PNW POWDER! Thanks for the turns, guys, and we’ll ski ya later and always remember to “Live to Ski Another Day!”

Tim slogging his way up the White Salmon. Photo/Robert Bolton

Tim and I were moving on the snow by 5am and by first light we were making good progress up a well laid skin track on the White Salmon Glacier. Snow conditions looked more promising than expected, with decent snow even in lower elevation. Certain aspects were wind effected, but we didn’t see any signs of a sun crust.
 

We reached the summit at noon, and my first turn off the ridge into the gully on the summit pyramid convinced me no more turns were needed until we encountered softer snow. I joked with Tim that I straight lined the gully – except my skis were perpendicular to the slope rather than parallel and my top speed never got above 3mph. Out of the gully, the snow softened, and we opened it up and had some nice turns on the Sulphide Glacier. We found nice pow on Winnies Slide and most of the way down the White Salmon until about 4,000ft where it turned to mush.

Jason Hummel living largely.


 

Jeff Rich and Jason Hummel had a magnificent day up on Mt. St. Helens. The target was the High Orbit Circumnavigation and it was a success as you will see in the video below.

Andy Traslin, just sent this edit from their backyard up in Vancouver, BC, Canada. East Peak was the target this past week and it looks like the skiing was typical to ours… GREAT!!!

A chill morning in the backyard.


 

Yesterday (Feb. 24th), 2018 proved to be a great day to call Summit East my true, backyard home mountain! Started the day off with my bro Scott Sumner, then peeled off to see if I could find a little tree skiing… I did! 🙂

Working towards Wall St. 🙂 skier/TNT, photo credit/ Scott Sumner


 

I was getting ready to take a little low angle walk yesterday around 1PM, when I got a text from my bro, Scott Sumner. His text said that he was going to ski Alpental BC, which made me wonder where, as the high gate (Nash Gate) had been close all week. The patrol had it closed because of big slab avalanche potential, and it didn’t help that a massive slide was triggered last Sunday by a rider out of bounds which took him for a big ride and also put debris into the ski area, where a ski patrol member and dog were partially buried. Well, after check of the Summit’s website, the high gate was INDEED open!!! Today should be superb all across the Cascades!

Low angle tree fun!


 

The past two days have been quite nice, even with the small amounts of snowfall since last weekend. Wednesday I was rocking the groomers over at Summit Central with MarkeyWA and yesterday, I took a little walk across the freeway with Scott Sumner to some of our chill powder stashes.

Rolling SR906 to the big KIDS playground. 🙂


 

This past Feb. 26th, 2018, we woke up to 6+ inches at the base areas (around 5AM). However, by 9AM we had received another 4+ inches, giving us over 10″ at the base. Also, to cap off the big bomb excitement, we got word the freeway was closed Eastbound, not letting some of my best ski buddies make it from the Westside. 🙁 I know it’s been said, “NO friends on powda dayz”, however, I love my skiing with my friends. Check out the short video of the fun day.
