15 Jun, 2011
It’s June 15 and I’m still walking out on the snow to go snowboarding. That’s pretty rad considering most resorts have closed for the season or aren’t open daily. Last summer I was riding Timberline and now I’m at Mammoth enjoying the summer conditions. But it’s also a reminder that the season will end on July 4 and when it does, instead of seeking year round snow…I’ll be taking a break to get into mountain biking and enjoy a late summer.
Snow conditions were perfect when we headed out, the pipe was softening up and most of the snow was soft but not slushy yet. It was good turns on the mountain.
I took out the Flow Quantum for the day. The guys at Flow were kind enough to leave a board bag of 2012 boards for me to try out this month and I’m stoked to be able to ride a ton of Flow boards for review.

Dan took this photo of me freeriding down from the park to Chair #1 on the Quantum. I took it through the pipe and Forest Trail parks today, just playing on the jump line with it. It’ll be tested out more days on the mountain so this was a good first day with it.
Last run I snapped this shot of Dan on the down flat box in Forest and I really like it for showing the action of him getting on the box and of course sporting the spring skiing t-shirt.
