Hey fellow skiers and readers,
thought I would update you all on what I have been up to this early
season. My season started out once I finished work in Vernon, I had
the pleasure of working with Joe Schuster for a week on the new city
hall development in Vernon. Before that I had been creating new
sidewalks and curbs throughout the Okanagan with Grizzly Curb. Anyways
once I was done with work I drove my truck (Gina-Marie) down to Utah
where I picked up a sled. I stayed in Park City for a night with my
good friend Tim Russell and his lovely girlfriend Kristen Black. Once
my sled was ready to be picked up, I picked it up, bet you could
guessed that. Then I continued my road trip onward to Colorado. I
made it to Simon Dumont's house in Dillon and skied that afternoon at
Keystone. The next morning I got a call from Josh Berman letting me
know about a storm that was about to hit the Northwest. I decided it
was in my best intrest to book a flight and fly back up to pretty much
where I just came from. This is a shot of Freedle Coty, Duncan Adams
and I waiting it out on a nice look out in bellingham since it was
raining up in the mountains.
That night it turned to snow, thank goodness.
got to shred some super awesome wonderous kick ass snow early season
when we were not expecting too. It is very hard to ask for more at
this point, but we got it, in the form of more snow. We met some
friends up there and got to cruise around for a few days. It
eventually turned to rain, but thats ok, its mid-november. We did
quite a bit of commuting in a fairly small vehicle for us and all of
our gear. Which made it interesting and quite cozy. This was the
vehicle about half full...
It gave us some good time for music and jokes and mustache designs...
am now back in Colorado where there are some fine jumps and fine people
around to shred with. If you happen to be one of those fine people
feel free to throw me a high five or a wave if you see me about. I
will most likely be at Keystone or Breck hitting jumps, rails, groomers
and having a lot of fun. Hope to you out there, and if your up in the
Northwest right now, enjoy the snow, your getting really lucky. I will
be up there soon. Happy Shredding!
