Here at Flow Snowboarding, we want to know… July is still considered summer… right? We are asking that because while the whole world was watching Mick Fanning punch a couple great white sharks over the weekend, it was also snowing on the Big Island of Hawaii on the summit of Mauna Kea. The summit of Mauna Kea sits at 13,796 feet. The snowfall wasn’t too substantial, as only 1.5 – 2 inches accumulated per the reports. It was just enough to close the road to the main summit.

Flow Snowboarding can’t help but play the winter prediction game in the off-season, you could even call it one of our #FlowRituals. The real question we all want to know is… how much snow are we getting this coming winter? For those of us who have been hitting the ocean this summer, you can tell there is something building out there. This past week, our friends at NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) had some good news in their ENSO (El Niño Southern Oscillation) Diagnostic Discussion. What they said in their July 9th report was potentially good news for the drought stricken west.

Lack of snow at the local resorts didn’t stop Santa Maria from searching for the snow.

For Flow Snowboarding Micron Caleb Bonneville, the 2014-15 winter could have used more cowbell. Record lows as far as snow pack in California had Caleb seeking better snow in Oregon. That hunger took him up to Mount Bachelor in search of the soft white stuff. Unfortunately, mother nature sent him rain on his trip instead of snow. Not ideal conditions, shutting down most of the jumps. Caleb made the best of his trip hitting the jibline. Here is the edit from his trip up to the Pacific North West.
