Cinco De Mayo
Coming into 2017 the ET crew was focused on building our lifestyle brand by continuing to do the things we love with the people we care about. We knew that the farmers almanac called for a La Nina winter. What we didn’t know was just how EPIC and HISTORIC the snowpack would be! I mean, come on. March set a record for snowfall with over 100 inches in all the Washington passes. That March madness turned into April radness and we still had some deep days on the slopes until nearly the first of May. Honestly we were all wondering if we would get any spring riding in at all! With Baker, Crystal and Stevens closing by the end of April there was only one resort left standing. Luckily for us, most seasons for our crew end where they begin; Snocompton. Cinco de Mayo was the ultimate mixed bag this year. It was a bonafide slush fest and culmination of this legendary winter spent with our closest amigos. We all took work and school off to indulge in one last Alpy Friday that wouldn’t have been complete without the sombreros, burritos and of course some Pacifico. We hucked it because the snow was so soft and buttery. Mother nature displayed all four seasons for us. The morning started with broken clouds and sunbreaks before quickly turning to garbage bag weather. Just how we like it.
