It's finally getting good here in the Inland Northwest-Mt Spokane

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

It seemed like January started off here in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho with a nice tempo but then petered out after the first few weeks. Hey we had lot's of Bluebird days on the hill just no freshies! Finally WINTER Has arrived and we got a decent amount of snowfall. With close to 3' falling in a little over a week the resorts were getting a much needed reset. Last Friday we made our way to Mt Spokane where we got in a little powder skiing with some of the crew from The Kan.

No visit is complete without a stop by the Vista House at the top of the mountain off Chair One. Totally covered in Rime. It reminded me of a Gingerbread House. After a quick stop for some pics we were off getting air and searching for the soft snow.

Pretty fun hanging with a bunch of Short Pole-Rippers!

These boys were all about sending it and having some fun. Our "Mature" Female of the group wasn't about to let all these young ens' have all the fun so Deseri had to step up and let er' Buck! I think she gained some immediate respect from the boys after sending it Big!

Just to show these Newbies where this sport of Freestyle started, I had to throw in a little "Old School" for them!

We worked our way over to the Backside and got into some good tree skiing. It was good but we missed he money by one day!

Mt Spokane always has cool features and incredible scenery.

Not a bad mountain considering it's only 28 miles from downtown Spokane!  Here's the video recap of our day at The Kan.

Core 2 and CMR40, Thank you. It's pretty easy to shoot sweet video and pictures when you have good talent and fun terrain! Thanks for the props. I can't wait for the next adventure back out in the mountains.
