Endless Snow at Rogers Pass

I spent a few days in Revelstoke just before Christmas with my old buddy Scott Newsome. Dan K. and I were taking the A.S.T. 2 course with Scott instructing. We got around 2 feet of snow in 3 days on Rogers Pass. Lots of changes in the upper snowpack to study and a few pow runs just before dark. Not too many pics of riding as most of it was done after sunset in snowstorms. Deepest snow of the season so far. A great way to update some back-country skills and spend time with friends.

No shortage of early season snow on the Pass.

Newsome the mountain man.

Newsome about to drop into the deep.

Mount Sir Donald with the only sunlight we saw in 3 days - right before dark.

Dan K delirious in the apres.

I miss Joe Strummer. He passed away 7 years ago today and the world is a bit smaller without him. He had so much left to give. This is a shot from a performance he gave in San Diego with the Mescalaros the summer before his death. I was lucky to be there that day.

Here's a shot from The Clash tour in 1984. One of the first concerts I went to. It wasn't the original lineup, but it was still Joe & Paul doing Clash songs.
Gone but not forgotten.

"Deeper" in the mags.

Snowboard Canada has a feature on our trip from last April in their "Early Winter" issue. Jeff Patterson put it together with the pics he took and the words we wrote. Check it out on the newstand this week.

South of the border, Transworld has Dan Milner's coverage of the mission in their January issue.

Nice to see something a little different in the shred magazines. Check them out.

Deeper Unplugged

Jeremy Jones talks about the Deeper project.
Lots of my shots from AK in there. Great to see some of them get out there. Looking forward to getting some more.
