First Pow Day of the Season!

Nick Goepper here reporting from Windells. A pacific storm just demolished Oregon and dropped 3+ feet on Mt. Hood! The rain didn't let up at camp the last 4 days but finally a sunny day graced Oregon today! An anxious van ride followed breakfast as we drove to the mountain this morning. The lifts weren't running so we opted to hike a small gully just south of the Timberline parking lot. There was some steep pitch on the sides of the gully which allowed us to build some cool features. My coach Jeff Curry and I built a tree tap/gap over some pines after we were done sessioning the small stepdown we had already built. Building jumps in pow and hitting them is more work then I expected!

Here is a clip of the craziness.

More updates to come as the snow continues to fall at Mt. Hood!


  1. YA Nick this looks sick, way to hike it and earn that jump...will be seeing you @ Dew Tour soon!
