“The following day we woke up to over 2 feet of fresh snow. The stoke was at an all-time high! We toured up the main ridge and found ourselves riding the east bowl as the sun was rising and the west bowl by the end of the day. Although the storm snow was a little unnerving due to the snowpack we found ourselves playing in this beautiful old-growth forest called 3 O’clock trees. The trees are beautifully spaced apart and the north-facing aspect allows for some beautiful snow. There was no shortage of “hoots” and “hollers” as Meghann, Trent, Eva and I weaved turns underneath the moss-covered cedar and Douglas fir trees while sharing some of the best turns of the season so far.”
An excerpt from pro-snowboarder and environmentalist Tamo Campos blog post for Spark Bindings. I had the pleasure of joining Tamo this past winter, 2021, to take some photos of his split boarding adventures at Mt. Cain.
