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 for the photo dispatch.”

Mike's Mash Up
The Bow House
Posted on July 9, 2014

I’m a fan of repurposing products for a new life. When it comes to physical spaces and architectural finds, I get all giddy at the creative process. Having been through a few myself, the excitement wears off pretty quickly when you deal with poor subs and an archaic city approval process. Regardless, I’m hooked and looking forward to jump at the next opportunity. Recently, I stumbled across a cool build in Portland, OR by Works of an industrial building into a 5,000swft living space. From the outside, the view is minimal and matches the street landscape


I’ve seen a lot of these type of remodels, but what stuck out to me was the center open space


Light from the outside to the inside. I love how the vertical glass that floats above the wooden structure
