photo 27 Sep 29 notes I’ve read a bunch of rough reviews on the Mountain Hardwear EV 2, so I headed up on Mount Hood to do some personal gear testing in freezing weather. After a night in it I have no complains about ventilation in 32 degree weather with no wind. With most of the vents open, I woke up with barely a few droplets on the ceiling. This tent is designed for high altitude alpine use in snow or dry conditions and seems to work great so far. #pnw #splitboarding #snowboarding #splitboard #mthood #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #splitboard_com #portland #mountainhardwear #review #alpine #stars #oregon

photo 21 Sep 12 notes The pursuit for endless winter isn’t always what you are expecting but when the journey includes great friends, sometimes it really doesn’t matter.  @hefe_steele and @kellymsteele looking down at the rock hard snowpack on Pinnacle Glacier on Mount Rainier. #snowboarding #splitboard #mtrainier #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #splitboard_com

photo 30 Aug 3 notes Here lays the remains of the magnificent Paradise Ice Caves. These caves once attracted scores of tourists to Mt. Rainier in the 1900s. Our fault or not, our climate is changing and our glaciers are disappearing. The proof is all around us. August 30, 2014.( Photo of a Vintage Curteichcolor Postcard Paradise Ice Caves Mt. Ranier National Park, Washington, 455)

photo 21 Aug 3 notes Last photo of the set, @hefe_steele riding down thru the clouds that had just socked us in. The entire day was filled with beautiful sights and seconds later completely fogged in. No complaints tho, where else can you still get your turns in August in the US. #pnw #splitboarding #snowboarding #splitboard #mtrainier #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #backcountry

photo 21 Aug 1 note @hefe_steele riding down into the plan b route. As he was heading down his line, we suddenly got socked in and was about to lose visibility. Quickly cutting across the slope, he headed down to thru an ice field. Snowboarding on ice is ridiculous hard btw… August 20 2014. #pnw #splitboarding #snowboarding #splitboard #mtrainier #staywild #alwaysascending #earnyourturns #turnsallyear #pacificnorthwest #cascades #climbing #skiing #mountaineering #rei1440project #hiking #keepexploring #backcountry
