“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…

ACE Hotel Seattle

21 February 2012, 20.51 | Posted in Travel | 1 comment »

Boutique, basic and affordable are the 3 things I look for when staying at most urban city hotels. Last week while I was out in Seattle, Washington I spent 6 days in the mountains snowboarding at Mt. Baker, Stevens Pass and Snoqualmie as well as spectating one of the oldest snowboard events, “The Legendary Banked Slalom” at Mt. Baker. I decided after roughing it to spend my last night in Seattle at the ACE Hotel. So worth it, this small quaint property is perfectly situated near everything Seattle. Especially if your going to be in and out checking out the local scene. The ACE is super easy to access it and it almost makes you feel as if it were your own private studio apartment. The rooms are great. Simplistic but ultra comfort and convenient with amazing furniture.
Thanks again ACE for making my stay a pleasurable and memorable one.
