Snow and Sun – Spring 2012

Published on March 31, 2012 by

Two weeks ago Flagstaff received 2+ feet of snow, with the peaks above town getting 4+ feet. The sledding/skiing/snowboarding was quite spectacular, and the bike riding not so much.

The sun came out and and after two weeks of 60 degree highs, the bike riding is getting quite good. Dara and McKenna demonstrate.

Spring Ideas

Published on February 5, 2012 by

Got my first custom mountain bike frame bag built by Big Dave at Nuclear Sunrise Stichworks.
frame  bag
The frame bag is fully custom, fits great, was designed/built fast, and priced great. Satisfied. Need a custom frame bag fast? Talk to Dave.
So what to do come April… The AZT race or a few days at the OPUS Hut? Anyone?

Or just go back up to the innerbasin.
danger do not enter
More hiking/boarding. Less driving.

The Sacred Peaks

Published on December 19, 2011 by

This is a short video that briefly discusses the controversy of using reclaimed-water for snow-making at Arizona Snowbowl. The Kachina Peaks cinematography is the best I have seen.

Five Decembers

Published on December 16, 2011 by

Looking back at my snow diaries, I remember that the past four Decembers have included good snow. By good snow, I mean good boarding/skiing without hitting too many rocks (this IS Arizona). Here’s a sample.

And Dec. 2011 makes it five Decembers of good snow.

Just like much of the western US, we have a shallow and weak snow-pack.

Head’s up! Use your head and make it home alive. There are people that need you. Here’s mine.
