Slush, Sweat and Sunburns

Spring Break Sustained at Summit Parks

As flowers begin to bloom at sea level, the snow starts to soften up high. Setback stances are rearranged as powder turns to corn and the short boards come out. Spring has hit Washington State. And while bikini tanned ladies and tank-topped lads stumble back from the beaches of Cabo to resume their regular lives, Spring savvy shenanigans continue on in the mountains. It’s in full swing up on Snoqualmie Pass. With bright skies and cushy landings, Summit at Snoqualmie becomes a park rat’s paradise. March 31 at the Summit was a scorcher; a day full of sweat, sunburns, full-sends and steady stomps. Here’s a gallery of the day’s slushy session, a glimpse at the jib-centric fun that Summit Parks’ luminous last days of the season provide–clouds willing.

Many thanks to Joe Pope and the Summit Parks crew for shaping such a fine park. Summit at Snoqualmie will have its lifts spinning for a few more weeks, so go up and get your jib on before it’s too late. Don’t forget sunscreen.
