…It’s 2012, and the economy has crashed completely. The snowboarding industry is non-existent, and Washington is brought back to the times of the wild west. Outlaws and renegades struggle to survive. In the Pacific northwest there is a small band of riders who’s passion for riding and filming still fuels there will to live, and there is a bounty out to collect footage of these outlaws. But bounty filmers are few and far between, and the competition to film is deadly. Watch the riders push there skills to new levels, in a quest to film a video part. It won’t be easy, as their is more to filming now than just riding. They must face each other in fierce competition for a filmer, and end up in a unforeseen twist of fate…….this is “How The Northwest Was One!”
Yours truly got a call from Pat Milbery on Monday night letting me know he was in town to hook up with Jesse Burtner and the cast of Think Thank to film the opening part of their new film “Cool Story.” Tuesday morning, I skinned the Spacecraft rabbit, loaded up my snowskate, packed my wife’s camera and made the pilgrimage to the badlands of the dismantled Hyak resort, (just one of the gems at The Summit at Snoqualmie). With a sled ride from the Evo house, I was dropped off at the secret playground to a greeting of laughter and shakas. The likes of Gus Engle, Pat Milbery, Ben Bogart, Matt Edgers, Blair Habenicht, Jonny Miller, Andre Spinelli and of course Jesse Burtner were all hanging out and polishing their tricks. Below are some of the images I captured while wearing the Rabbit suit and playing the fool. Thanks to The Summit and the hardworking staff that makes cool stuff like this happen :: Click each pic twice to enlarge

This weekend the sun came out after a great week of fresh pow and the crew went up to Crystal Mt. for a shredfest with TSB (The Service Board). I want to give a huge THANK YOU to that inspiring group of rockstars for letting us come out and kick some snow around. The Service Board uses mentors, community service and snowboarding to change the lives of Seattle’s young people. Click here to check out some photos our friend Pat Wright shot from the good times.
