Scott Sumner taking the pups for a walk. 🙂

Took a walk in the backyard with Scott Sumner and his two pups, Sophie and Olive. The weather experts were a little off today, to our enjoyment at high noon. Some earth is starting to show itself, so it won’t be long at 2,600′.

Andy Traslin has been doing a little editing lately of some of his early season adventures. This trip was just outside of Vancouver, BC, skiing into the sunset with his brother, Mike.

Jeff Rich was recently on a road trip with his daughter, where they manage to catch some great resort skiing, along with cool looking “late season” BC. The video opens up with a crew of local Jackson Hole destroyers getting rowdy! Looked like an awesome trip, they had and I am looking forward to our “post season” ski gatherings.

Last Chair @ 5420′, in the heart of the Central Cascades.

A couple of days ago (Sunday-4/9/17), we saw a mix of weather from 5420′ to 3140′ above sea level, in the heart of the Central Cascades. It truly was a “Spring Conditions” (aka variable) day at Alpental, spending most of the day riding the corn, lapping chair 2. However, in between the sun breaks, that kept the snow soft in it’s variable way, we did see cold snow falling, off and on all day. It was a quiet day for locs, and the “last chair” group of Alpentalics (seen above) got to take it all in, as the clouds finally lifted. Deanna and Randy Aadland (an awesome true blue Alpental couple, had their daughter, Vanessa, return from an Epic LONG trip to Guatemala. So, I was stoked to actually meet her and ski with all three of them (maybe someday her two brothers as well). Our last lap in the bc, proved to be very testy but super fun! Another fantastic day in the home zone.
Live to Ski Another Day!

Some of the athletes hanging out, below Rollen Rocks.

March 25th, 2017, Alpental held the Northwest Freeride Competition, right below the chair line of Edelweiss. I was hoping for more sun breaks, but it seemed like every time one of the athletes dropped, so did the clouds. It must have been tough for a lot of the kids with the super low light and vis. Below is a mashup of what I could see. 😉

Andrew Eckels, looking down the Zipper Chute at Twin Lakes.

This past Monday (4/3/17), Andrew Eckels, Jacob Mandell and Andrew Pringles landed in the Hyak parking lot around 8AM or so. Then skinned for Silver Peak, via a short ski down Hidden Valley, on the way. When they hit the Summit of Silver Peak, there was a massive cornice that kept them of the SE face. The crew decided to play it safe and ski the ridge line then, drop down towards the PCT. After that ski, the boyz rolled up toward the Zipper Chute, where they found some gnarly dust on crust at the entrance(which if Andrew left the audio, you would have herd Jacob giggling and calling it survival skiing as Andrew scratched his way down the chute) that became nice skiing lower down the chute. Check out the sweet edit, Andrew Eckels banged out yesterday of their adventure.

Here’s a fun edit Alex Ropka sent over from March Radness! He even managed to catch a couple clips of our homie, Jeff Rich! Spring has sprung and it’s been a great year, and looking for another blast or two before our lift served season ends.
