November 10th, I get a text from Grant: “yes, I want to ski. Wasted at a bar… call me tomorrow”.
On the 11th, I call Grant and it is game on. Mt Baker has 67inches of fresh and we are fired up. Drew Stoecklein is flying in the same day from Boise, ID and the madness is on.
I arrived on the 11th at night, wokeÂ up at 5am and headed to the hill and I couldn’t believe my eyes. Mt Baker generally gets no sunlight from November to March. I, personally, have NEVER seen sun at Mt Baker in the last 2 years. We had a perfect blue sky and 4 ft of fresh powder on top of the rest that fell before.
Grant fired the camera and we got EPIC shots. Skiing with Drew was a great experience too – humble, passionate, and fun.
Here are a couple links below for Grant’s shots and an article from Skiing Magazine.
I just arrived in Portland and I am about to pick up my new Smith, Elan and Dabello gear at The Ski Chalet. Great store with a very prefessional staff. So, come over and check out their gear. I heard Mt Hood got snow too… time to go back to work…
