During the middle of March, Rob (terrain park groomer) and I took a road trip with a destination of Mt. Bachelor. The plan was to test out the best parks Washington and Oregon have to offer, but mother nature had other plans for our trip. A massive spring powder storm hit the west coast and blanketed the Pacific North West resorts with multiple feet of fresh snow, and we weren't complaining. The trip started off with a stop at Mission Ridge in Washington. Amazing rope-tow park, as well as a nice little hand rail that we setup by our camper. No doubt we will be back to have some hot laps soon!
Next stop was Stevens Pass, Washington. Massive amounts of snow, combined with steep, dangerous terrain made this mountain a playground for any skilled rider. Lots of face shots where had and many cliffs were dropped. The next day, we reached Mt. Bachelor. They had received 7ft of snow in 5 days! With cold temps (-12), this snow was some of the deepest and lightest powder I have ever ridden. The final day of our trip, we drove up to Mt. Baker to meet up with 2 more local Grouse Park Crew members. We were blessed with sunshine all morning which made for a amazing end to our trip. Here is an edit of the trip for you to enjoy!
Hope to see everyone this weekend at the RedBull Slope Soakers this Saturday!
Until next time
