MT. HOOD STARS
Pete Alport Photography
Here is the first volcano I skied in 1981: Wy' East or Mt. Hood as the white man named it. Little did I know decades later I would be flying in helicopters over the same terrain, shooting professional skiers and snowboarders hitting enormous jumps. I've snowboarded from the top, climbed inside ice caves that are now gone, and stared at her from my hometown of Portland. The image you see was shot while I was making an all Oregon backcountry snowboarding movie title, "Low Pressure," it's available on iTunes. Wy' East has provided and still is providing incredible memories.
