TheHigherEnd Down with the hate, up with the PNW stoke.





Even the "flatlands" can be pretty goddamn epic up here...

...or they are, and trying to craftily direct people towards T-line and away from Meadows, so there will be less tracks in Heather and the PR. Hmmmmm....

Meadows sucks go to Timberflats it's the shit.

ShredLife meadows shits all over timberline. period.

the reason timberline is so laid back is because unless you're a park rat its just a flat resort for noobs to suck on. the day meadows get their park shit dialed is the day timberline is only relevant in the summer.

Palmer terrain sucks, Mile sucks - Vista and Cascade destroy them.

easily 3 times as many natural drops, jumps and windlips at meadows simply because of the side of the mountain's weather it's on.

damn near all resorts offer early season pass prices (50% off or so) and then jack the price back up once the season starts. if tline is letting it stay low for longer its either because they're hurting for pass sales or they're just being cool because they have the only year-round snowpack in the lower 48 and the start/end of their season can be fuzzy to some

I agree it should help alot, although one downside will be all the good pow on that side will get demolished even faster now...atleast now all the families and what not are more or less "stuck" on the main side of the resort

I still cant quite decipher where the top of the lift is...ive seen the map where old Stadium went and i assume its the same area...but cant visualize on the mountain exactly where that is for some reason...

No playboy in the magazine section, it's just a tiny shop with one barber so often you won't even need to be sitting there for long or even at all. Gus likes to keep things organized with appointments so that prevents a long wait list but he'll take any walk-ins too. The vibe there is traditional but with a clean, modern edge. As far as shooting the shit, Gus is a great guy to talk to.

AtBothEnds I hear you on Portlandia, I think itís really funny but, at times, itís not much of an exaggeration of reality.

I like Portland a lot but it has more to do with my friends there than anything else. As far as the people who live there, I know what you mean but I like it for the most part or can at least deal with it. My friends whoíve always lived there just sort of roll their eyes at much of it.
There may be idiots everywhere on fixed gears but at the same time the town affords people a fair bit of freedom due to the cost of living being relatively inexpensive. I like that Portland is so eclectic but, at the same time, Iím one of the people whose interests intersect with a good portion of that so Iím a little bias.


On a side note, if anyone is looking for a good barber check out Oak Barbershop in Southeast. Oak Barbershop
