Boxes For Days

This past weekend Snoqualmie hosted one of the most excellent events to ever hit the slopes. The event was called Boxes For Days…and it was just that. It was one heck of a monstrosity! I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ll let the photos do the talking for the obstacle course. The turn out was sweet there were just under 100 competitors all fighting to slay the beast of a box. Airblaster, Snowboarder Magazine, and Think Thank supplied the prizes and the Summit park crew supplied the obstacles. And a huge thanks to Krush@Snoqualmie for putting on such an awesome event! Enjoy the photos-Tim Eddy

Barrel Jibbin and Jump Spinnin

Just got back from a few days of boarding at beautiful Breckenridge Colorado. What a blast! Top to bottom runs with a triple line of booters and some most excellent jibs. Here’s a little video of what my camera was able to capture in two runs. Just click this…Barrel Jibbin and Jump Spinnin…and enjoy  -Tim Eddy
