Got home the other night from Stevens Pass Washington. What a rad trip. We wanted to head down there (Strand, Claire and I) to take some photos in their brand new bike park built with the help of Gravity Logic this summer and the timing and players involved with the trip couldn’t have worked out better. Mason Mashon agreed to join us at the last minute to ride and work behind the lens and he proved to be the perfect addition to our crew. Mellow, hilarious, hardworking and an incredible rider…ideal!
On the first day we rode a shuttle trail in Leavenworth. Gnarly. Totally not what the three of us are used to – sandy, hot (like 36 degrees hot), exposed and with pretty big jumps. In half a day, we managed to get one scouting run in and another to shoot – high intensity, high consequence. Fun. So glad I was with Claire and Strand and Mase – it was the perfect crew to learn some of the features on the trail with and manage the heat with great jokes.
The next morning we were up bright and early to play at Stevens Pass. They have done an incredible job there on the trails they have done so far and they were super kind to have us there. Pro shuttled us all morning, we had lunch with their amazing crew…it was perfect. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, Stevens will be the place to shred nearby!
That’s pretty much all the info I’m going to share for now – we’re putting our work together on this and you’ll see more of it somewhere soon!
Thanks to Joel Martinez at Stevens Pass and Tom Pro for the kindness and hospitality. We had a great trip and we really appreciate the help!
