People call it a smoke shack but its just a little hand made shack that boarders stop by to chill, smoke, drink, put stickers up, work on it or just the adventure of getting to it. Most shacks require a decent amount of skill to get to them.I learn something new about this sport/lifestyle every day
I passed over this thread since it was started and just got curious. Not a clue what a "smoke shack" was, now I know
Sometimes when I am tired at Stevens, I will just ride around and smoke dudes out. Usually happens at the end of the day when my legs are jelly. Love the cave but there are a couple of spots out where we dig and build snow caves. It is nice to have a good spot to chill up there out of the wind.
That's rad dude, people like you are what makes Stevens the awesome place it is. I love that people are so friendly there! I've grown up riding here and I swear I have no desire to ride anywhere else. I'm reminded of how cool a place it is every time I ride at Snoqualmie or Crystal. Talk about a completely difference scene!
My favorite is finishing a hike and meeting chill people at the top. Most of the time they're down for a smoke, and even if they're not they are always cool about it.
We find our patrol chillin in the shacks. They don't care..... Forrest service cares.the first rule of smoke shacks is you don't talk about smoke shacks cuz excitable newly promoted ski patrol manager love to show their zest for the job by tearing them down and searching for the "PERPS"
