Mt Baker Sesh Up
Posted on June 3, 2014

“Every season, ski resorts all over the world have their end of the season send off. Mt Baker is no exception - we have the Mt Baker Seshup. Riders from all over the Pacific Northwest converge on Mt Baker, shovels in hand and work to make this event happen. It’s so cool to see 50 people all-shoveling with a goal: To see everyone send it. It’s a special experience and should be on your list of events to make a priority next season.

This year the weather was perfect for the setting. The sun was shining, there was plenty of snow to make it happen and kegs of beer were snow-cooled over night. 686 had a big crew at the event to represent. Local destroyers, Nate Lind, Matt Wainhouse, Joe Bosler and Matteo Soltane were all there to throw down and kill it.

The step up, usually a long curving run-in, had never been a double line until this year. Straightening out the run-in meant where there used to be safety in the drop in, was now a 10-foot cliff drop at the top, thus ensuring you would reach terminal velocity!

A special shout out to event organizer Steven Goodale who killed it and all the people who rolled out and threw some shovel loads up there and a big shout to jump foreman Joe Bosler for perfecting the build! Make sure to check snowboardermagazine.com for the photo dispatch.”

Modernica vs. Herman Miller
Posted on August 1, 2014

Charles and Ray Eames are probably the most well-known designers in American history. So many products have spawned from their mid-century creations. One of the most world famous and copied piece of furniture is the “Eames Molded Plastic Chair.” Some call it the fiberglass or shell chair but it’s now produced by Herman Miller

Modernica is an LA based manufacturer who uses the original presses by the plastic company which the Eames were associated with. There is a long legal dispute between Herman Miller and Modernica but that’s another story… Check below and you make the decision which one is better. The Herman Miller Polypropylene or the Modernica Fiberglass?
