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.

Caught up with Geoff Curtis of Marker to check out the NEW Alpinist binding!


 

This past Outdoor Retailer/ S.I.A. show we were excited to not only see the new Alpinist binding on the showroom floor in Denver, but also get to ski it at Copper Mountain a couple of days later! The binding is lighter than the Dynafit speed and when skied on their super light, VTA88 ski, well, I felt like a World Cup slalom or G.S. skier 😉
 

 
Below are a few words from Marker in regards to the new Alpinist binding which will be available this September 2018.

It was an EXPERT only day from top to bottom, and the She Jumps riders found the best snow on the mountain… Gun Mount 🙂 Everything else was lock up and would certainly test your ski skills!


 

Captured a few clips from a super cool event that took place this past weekend, the She Jumps’ Alpental Freeride clinic.
 
She jumps mentioned that the Freeride clinic was “for a new Sweet Skills women’s freeride skiing experience at Alpental! This freeride clinic is geared to help advanced to expert level, experienced resort skiers push their skiing to a higher level and improve confidence in off-piste, variable, steep, or technical terrain. Women will receive individualized feedback on their style and technique, as well as tips to improve control in steep terrain, ultimately improving fluidity and overall energy.”

Here’s a quality edit by Mt. Baker rider, Sam Giffin, of a trip last year to “Alaska Heli Skiing” with Sean Dog! Our Snow Trooper friends, Cole Barrett and Zach Giffin, are featured in this short film, “Kodak Courage”. Pour that cup of joe, click play and start the day off right, or should I say “Right on Brother!”
