This has been the fastest winter of my life, maybe that means it has been the busiest. April is just a few days away and dreams of big lines and epic scenery are pointing me North.
Here at home weather has been ‘all time’ and most of us have been working our asses off to make this winter as productive as possible. For some reason despite my efforts the stars won’t quite align and the perfect photo keeps slipping from my fingers. I have got one or two but it seems to be an endless effort, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
It has been cool to hang out with all the locals around Stevens and always nice to see the familiar foreign faces that make it to town for a pit stop each year. December kicked off well with a visit from Euro Sebi Geiger. Snow was minimal and jibbing was in full effect. So stoked he joined us for an overnighter on a tall summit shooting under the the lunar eclipse.
The Chilean crew has currently taken over the mountain and are living the life rolling 10 deep in a little RV, ratos style! Manuel Diaz has gone bigger then anyone I have ever seen at Stevens this past week . After literally jumping off the top and over the entire Rooster Comb he says,
"i think this mountain is too small for me now."
Big Will Jackways spent a couple hero days here at the resort dropping lines and spreading smiles with his Kiwi charm.
We had an unexpected visit from some of the boys of Europe’s Isenseven crew and Pleasure magazine. The house was crowded for a while but they left a heap of beer for us, which was nice.

Capita’s sweet mama Laura Hadar hit some big boy airs up on cowboy and showed us a solid NorthWest method.
And now it is still snowing outside my window.
Thank god for down days! Its near impossible to keep a fresh perspective a midst massive snowfalls, powder turns, tippers and celebrations. Winter is such a special time for all of us that are fortunate enough to take part in this lifestyle.
Thanks to all my friends and family for helping me become who I am today. Live to your fullest potential and enjoy the days we have in this life as they won’t last forever.
Remember those who shared in our culture and are no longer with us.
