Alas, the time has come for me to hang up the skis and move on from the awesomeness that is Mt. Baker and Glacier. Summer = “day job” work season for me. Currently I’m in Port Townsend counting seabirds and marine mammals for a tidal turbine installation with some serious nerds from University of Washington SAFS, and I’ll be heading back to the Gulf of Mexico and the SE Atlantic coast in a few weeks.Here are a few of my snapshots from the end of my ski season. All in all the 10/11 season was one of the most memorable I’ve had since… ever. Thanks to everyone for helping make it fun and successful! Metalmücil on the marquee. FKNA! We ended up playing 7 concerts in March and April.

Mt. Shuksan from White Salmon Lodge. This view never gets old.
Gunder, K.C., and I sessioned the road gap. Well, K.C. sessioned it, I pussed out, and “Gunder” took the best photo of his life. Look for it in the magazines next year – you’ll know it when you see it.

Michelle Savoie took this picture of K.C. Gunder has a similar angle. I had the $$$$$$$$$$$ angle.

On closing day, Dean Collins busted out the old-school F17’s and showed us how it was done in the bumps before they discovered fire.
