Words and Photos by Doug Tolman
It’s no secret that Nor-Am events are few and far between these days. Insurance, hay bales and timing systems are all expenses preventing peeps from hosting ‘legitimate’ events. There are a few rad freeride events like Giant’s Head and KNK going down, but it’s apparent that a lot of destination-skating has migrated away from the race scene. By no means does that imply the heavy pack skating has stopped, now it’s just under the radar. As shown in a few previous articles, the best downhill skaters in the west have been stopping by our local slab of pavement for some steep skids and heavy hits.
I thought I’d lost a good chunk of the photos from one particularly deep session last month, but recently the skate gods blessed me with a treasure greater than the outcome of any train-robbery. Here are the goods.
With the ski resorts getting dumped on as I type this, Rasta Resort probably is too. So long for now, best in the west.
