“Snowboardless in Seattle”

13 March 2013, 08.58 | Posted in Snowboard, Uncategorized | No comments »

“The 28th Annual Legendary Banked Slalom” held at Mt. Baker, Washington was once again an epic experience. I had gone for the first time last year and swore that I would return to this monumental event. Plus having downtown Seattle to hang out in before the short trip to Mt. Baker is perfect. It’s a great city for nightlife, skateboard scene and kick ass bars and restaurants. So after a day of hanging in the city we were ready to head up to Baker. Only a 3 hour drive from Seattle with my buddy Jake Hanson of Coal Headwear who was our amazing host! Thank you Coal Crew and C3 for everything and the rad demo gear. My good friends Craig Wetherby of “The Good Life” and #snowgods joined us on our journey. The race is always cool to check out. You get to see all the legends you looked up to, current shredders you have known and all the little up and coming rippers. But when you have Mt. Baker as the backdrop for this amazing race it’s hard but to not just go shred the mountain…so we did! Have fun checking out all my photos. It’s more than I would normally post but this is “The Bank Slalom”. Click read more for pics…

Thank you Salmon doods for working the mountain in the winter and the seas in summer. Best Salmon Ever! And this is a traditional thing. So if you want in next year start planing your trip in the Spring time! See you in Seattle Winter 2014!
