Powder on 7th Heaven at Whistler Blackcomb

My week of snowboarding at Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia.

Using the GoPro Hero4 on 7th Heaven

Snow was nice and cold a fluffy Still finding fresh pockets in the afternoon.


I got that jacket at The Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham, Washington.

The Zumiez there had one of the better varieties of Burton gear.  I was a fan of Craig Kelly and Jeff Brushie, and this is what was cool back then.

Their was a time when i thought of retiring the jacket… but it was always met with resistance from the people I rode with.   So I’ve kept carrying the torch! haha.   Back in the early 2000 ad’s  when the florescent colors were definitely out of style.  A bunch of my friends and I were at Mt. Baker riding and one of my buddies got hurt.  He was down at the lodge getting attention for a tweaked knee.   He wanted to let us know that he was at the lodge and told the nurse to let the lifty’s know to look for me.  She asked him how the would know?  So he told her, “he’s the guy with the florescent jacket”  I came down to the bottom of the lift and the lifty turns to me and says “your buddy John is in the medical center”  Haha  we laugh about it to this day.

Every time I wear it, I get high fives in the lift line and cat calls from the chair lift.   You have to express yourself!
