Below is a collection of snowboarding media that I've collected over the years. The photos are stored in my snowboarding sets on Flickr. You an also find a set of unsorted images /here. My collection of snowboard videos I've shot/edited are all displayed below with a short description alongside each.


I started snowboarding on the hills of a Midwest golfcourse in Stillwater, Minnesota with my buddies in 1989. To us at that time, snowboarding meant going straight downhill toward a kicker and getting as much air as possible to a usually flat landing. Sometime around '93, mostly by the efforts of Matt L. and Mark S. we decided to learn how to actually carve our boards and not just sort of roughly turn them the way we had been. It was at that time that I gave up downhill skiing completely and my '89 Sims became my primary means of downhill travel.

2010 Bridger Bowl

I dislike overuse of such words as "epic" and "sick" but there are just some days in which those words describe the conditions excellently. Sunday, January 24th, 2010 was just one of those days.

Sixteen inches of snow had fallen over the weekend and it continued to fall the entire day. Mike and Sam broke out the Flip MinoHD camera for some quick and dirty captures - - trying not to miss a beat in the hiking and riding pace they had going.
