Beautiful Day For Freestyle Snowboarding In Southeast Alaska

Ingredients for a beautiful day of freestyle snowboarding in Southeast Alaska this past weekend: A talented and intrepid snowboarder, aka Sam Buck of Juneau, performing here a backflip; perfect snow conditions up high on Douglas Island;  the sun, which  made a brief but noticeable appearance;  gorgeous clouds above Stephens Passage and finally the stunning backdrop of snow covered trees on Douglas Island and snow capped mountains on Admiralty Island to frame this amazing experience.

Snowboarding In Downtown Juneau

It’s been snowing on and off throughout the week, and the snow berms in front of our house are big enough now for Florian to transform them into ramps to practice his snowboard jumps. What Florian now envisions is a half pipe in the ally between houses, but for that to happen we would need quite a bit more snow. He keeps his fingers crossed…

Snowboarder Catching Air At Eaglecrest

Snowboarder Kris Hill, a student at Juneau-Douglas High School, catches some air off a jump on the backside of Eaglecrest, just as the sun is setting behind Admiralty Island this past weekend. Light and subject were in perfect alignment for this shot and I was pleased with how the image turned out.

High Gravity Games

Snowboarders and skiers, along with snowshoers, sledders and dummys explored the law of gravity to its fullest potential yesterday at the Eaglecrest Ski Area as they tried to navigate a series of courses during the first-ever High Gravity Games. The games were a celebration of 25 years of business for the Alaskan Brewing Co. All funds raised at the event went to Hospice & Home Care of Juneau.

Florian Snowboarding In Juneau

We had a nice day at Eaglecrest yesterday skiing half a foot of fresh powder, but once we got home Florian kept begging to go snowboarding at the cemetery. So we went, and he just kept riding and jumping with his snowboard. Back at our house, he pulled out his skateboard and kept working on doing 180 degree spins. He would have taken his snowboard to bed if he could have done so. I am sure he will keep snowboarding in his dreams!
