Deep Day At Stevens Pass
Last Saturday, 39 inches of snow fell overnight at Stevens Pass, WA. The National Weather Service reported snowfall rates of 3 inches per hour at some points during the night. The storm was the result of a cold front and an extremely moist storm track converging over the top of Stevens Pass during the night.

The co-founder and owner/president of Two Plank, Corey Tibijas is a total badass. While working full time at Two Plank he is also a Crested Butte Firefighter and EMT. Oh wait, and he is working on a Business Administration degree from Western State College. Hats off to you Corey, the film looks great, I’ll check it out in September.

Today, Salomon Freeski TV dropped their newest episode in their ongoing web-series and she’s a real doozy! Especially for all you super-deep, over the head pow junkies out there, OH YEAH! This weeks episode finds Cody Townsend, his rippin’ new bride Elyse Saugstad, and young gun Leo Ahrens hucking cliffs and shredding DEEP pow at Washington’s Mt Baker and Stevens Pass “resorts”. This is only part 1 so I can’t wait to see next weeks conclusion with Mark Abma joining the crew!
Love the scene in the PNW, can’t wait to get up there ASAP!
