Last Weekend of Snowboarding

It was a sunny Saturday morning. It was hotter than usual for seven am. My wife Kyle, close friend Ryan, and I had the old Suby loaded, coffee clutched in hand, and the pedal down headed into the mountains. On our morning drive we noticed some people fishing in ponds around Eagle, Colorado. Further up the highway we noticed quite a few road bikes going over Vail pass. Their bikes were all shinny, and their shorts were all bright. It was a picturesque sunny Saturday Morning in the Rockies…and we were going snow sliding.

Summer Park Feature Construction

At the end of the day I guess you could say I build toys. Really big ones which I think are as much fun to ride as they are to build. What I am talking about is terrain park construction. Terrain parks are a part of ski areas where people can practice freestyle in a maintained space. You will find halfpipes, jumps, and jibs, among other things. I am a Terrain Park Builder, among other things. And this time of year is all about building. This past winter I even received “Park Feature of the Year” award from Ski Area Management for “Cody’s Colt” terrain park feature. (Photo below by Jeff Hawe, Rider Jason Robinson.)

Meet Jack Christopher Larson

I’m pleased to introduce to the MK family my new, soon-to-be hiking/climbing/camping/skiing/hunting/fishing buddy – Jack! Our son, Jack Christopher Larson, was born on June 12th at 9 lb 4 oz. I think, based on his size, he is trying to get into a pair of MKs as quickly as possible. […]

A Not So Hot and Sunny California Spring

A Not So Hot and Sunny California Spring

I just got home from a month long kayaking trip in California and I’ve got to say it wasn’t exactly the hot and sunny California that I remembered. Actually, it wasn’t hot and sunny at all, more like cold and rainy. And the water levels? They were a bit high most of the time. It was one of those things you just had to embrace. We wore dry suits and had cold hands. We life-styled and did other obscure activities. We did on overnighter in the rain. It was sweet.

I started off the trip in San Francisco visiting my big brother during what is claimed to be one of the best parties in all of California- Bay to Breakers. It lived up to its hype for sure, and involved walking like 10 miles in costume. I dressed up as a devil chicken. Next up was some time spent around Sacramento, finding things to do when the water levels weren’t exactly conducive to kayaking. Ever heard of kite skating? Stand up paddleboard surfing? I also managed to sneak in 49 to Bridgeport run of the South Yuba.
