8/26/2015 2:23:58 AM haha, I think they're just used to it.  Harbor (posing on ice) has been subjected to it since before she can remember.  you have to be quick with the camera too, but it's not as hard as it sometimes seems, I guess.  that said, she's especially good about it.  we've been able to get her to hold a pose, or something balanced on her nose, for quite a while.. a lot of the time, we have to stop her or she'll just keep going, haha. dawgz.  love 'em.
8/25/2015 12:44:39 AM For those that don't know, this is a rider's log for the season.. share little write-ups and photos/videos of your day riding, or a trip, or whatever you feel like.  figured I'd start this now and kick it off with a photo of new snow in Alaska.  my only hope for this season is that it's better than last, and that the mountain is OPEN from top to bottom so I can go fast, haha.  I'm even down with groomers only, because turning and side hits are a hoot, and I'll take any powzer we get.  I guess a crappy resort year could be an amazing splitboarding year, eh? no riding here just yet, but we got our first termination dust today (that I'm aware of) on the famous Mendenhall Towers.  pretty cool that this is the view right outside the shop!
8/23/2015 4:33:57 PM a few since spring Kai at the glacier Harbor eyeing a wild spring king frolicking through a field of wild cotton one of our island camping trips with a friend's dog 12 y/o cousin came up from Portland for his summer visit.  went fishing with the dogs and let him drive all the way home, heavily supervised of course hike to Windfall lake with two other dogs we were sitting hike to John Muir cabin with a new homie from florida
4/17/2015 11:28:39 PM for real.  our winter issue is not lack of precip at all, just temps too high.. we have an absolute excess of water here.  sounds like it's getting pretty bad in california...
4/17/2015 5:54:49 PM just read that based on the numbers, this was the worst season since Eaglecrest opened in the 70s.... damn. we had a pretty bad winter around 2000 or 2001 I think which just took forever to get going, but it kept coming like normal once it started around february.. this year just never made it past a certain point. I don't want to move, but I will if this becomes a regular thing
4/16/2015 5:03:01 PM yeah, who knows.  you hear pretty much the full spectrum of forecasts for any given year, so I just play it by ear and go with the flow... it's just never nice to hear those things.  we have had great years when it was supposed to be bad, and bad years when it was supposed to be good, and it's always different throughout the season anyway.  I just hope it's never this bad again.  the old timers have said it hasn't been this poor since the 1920s or so when their parents were around. I guess the only thing we can learn for sure is that weather happens, haha.  that would be a great slogan for Juneau. hopefully will get a couple more days on the MTN twin before it's all gone, though it may be on the wetter side.  in theory planning on taking a run tomorrow, and hopefully maybe doing a couple laps on saturday with my friend Jeremy
4/15/2015 6:12:04 PM yes, it's time for you to make a trip.  hopefully these winters don't stay shitty.. had a guy come in today telling me this technical weather crap about how it's a 10 year trend, but who knows.
4/15/2015 4:03:51 AM day 21, mtn twin split. solo run at eaglecrest again. snow compacted into more spring-like soft snow... only sinking a few inches, but fully soft all the way down. had a totally untouched run on one of my favorite areas. the mtn twin feels great. seriously stoked on it. kinda blew the gopro a bit, pointed too low even with the 4:3 setting (960) being a taller frame. oh well. hopefully the mountain weather holds and doesn't get too warm and wet, cause it's super fun right now. I just wish it weren't a preseason-level snowpack, cause it won't last long once it's too warm period. more snippets https://vimeo.com/125021207 [FLASH WIDTH=800 HEIGHT=450]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=125021207[/FLASH]
4/15/2015 2:05:03 AM yeah, the ferry ride is just 70 miles.  most of the places people ride are between 30-50 miles north of their terminal, though.. the classic heli-pad spot in haines that you see in Absinthe videos is at 33 mile next to the roadhouse (great burgers), and the canada border is around 40.. endless terrain up in the pass. anyway, it's interesting taking the ride up there.. the terrain grows as you head north, which is why they have a lot more elevation where it's actually winter, hah.  the snow line this year was just not low enough to build up much in Juneau, but Haines did well up higher in the later half of the season.  we also had a few storms come through in the past while.. still wasn't cold enough, but it didn't do too bad around here here are some pictures from my friend Dylan, the one who quit his job and has been there for about a month.  jealous.  some year.  it's still funny to me how close I am, but have never ridden there...
4/13/2015 7:49:04 PM normally, but the northwest had a terrible season in general, including AK.  there was good riding to be had at times, but it was spotty and never really built up too much of a base.  almost all the visible snow in that video is on top of next to nothing, hah... it was hard to stay motivated, and I just took it easy and went when it worked out, not stressing it. that said, Haines is primo this spring and is probably the best riding on the planet right now.  lots of my friends pretty much gave up on Juneau and took the ferry up there, and have been riding for over a month getting great looking big mountain pow days in.  I wanted to go spend a week up there, but it was all about money and timing, and didn't work out.  girlfriends, I tell ya...
4/13/2015 6:51:45 PM haven't posted in here for a while... so many dog pictures since last time, but I will limit myself, haha.  didn't realize I hadn't posted since we got our second dog Kai last summer.. he's a pure blue heeler who was a rescue from the streets of salt lake city, went to a friend of Lynzey's in santa cruz, and then he found his permanent home with us.  super sweet, polite, patient, loving, silly, playful... everything you could possibly want in a fur companion.  he makes Harbor look even more bitchy, hahah. here are the two turds on Kai's first full day in Juneau back in June last year he is "Lynzey's dog," but of course he is both ours.  she had wanted her own heeler again, ever since her last one sadly died of cancer years before.  they are perfect together :) our three, and the far right shares a dad with phantom (second from right) and belongs to a friend's family a trip to visit my mom in Haines last July.. this is one of my favorite pictures of my pups together. total buddies! and my mom finally got a dog again... his name is Aikau, and he comes from a small town not far from here, where the family had to move and just couldn't take him with.  they adopted him, and he fits right in.  another herding breed, so we've got quite the pack... 4th of july with our pups, haha this preseason, my friend and I were in the paper on our first day hiking Eaglecrest in november christmas outfits, haha a favorite picture of kai blasting through a mountain runoff strem a few weeks ago Harbor, protector of the skin track a month ago house sat 4 boston terriers at the same time for a month, haha.  so fun. wild beasts at Eagle beach! and then this past friday Lynzey had time off work, so we went out there again.  was snowing in town and sunny out there, haha.  this one happened as Harbor's face collided with Phantom's butt, hah. had Lynzey's client's dog with us for the day (spaniel on the right)
4/13/2015 3:13:54 PM day 20, splitting at Eaglecrest, first time using the Jones Mtn Twin 160 split I picked up to compliment my hovercraft split. been snowing for a few days not too high up, so was expecting full winter conditions up there today. correct! it was on the heavy side, but not moist enough to be sticky.. heard it was lighter yesterday. had some deep turns in the fog. mountain twin split is sweet... held its own and floated well, considering it's not a pow board and the snow was thick. stoked on it. hovercraft would have surfed wonderfully, but glad I got to try the other board before the snow is all gone. nothing special, just some snippets from my first run bouncing around in mashed taters https://vimeo.com/124859894 [FLASH WIDTH=800 HEIGHT=450]http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=124859894[/FLASH]
4/3/2015 7:40:18 PM nice!  I love all things classic jazz/blues/soul/etc... just recently heard that genre name after pandora kept playing Django Reinhardt, who google credits as "the guy" just good vibe tunes... gotta love it.  and clearly it goes great with silly animals having a good time, hah.
4/1/2015 9:16:23 PM I hadn't heard of them before, but have been on a Cab Callaway binge that lead to me finding a few of their songs.  I dig!
