Deep in the Sierra Mountains, Flow Snowboardings Mike Basich built his own House, a Tow-rope to the house and now a Chairlift that goes 1200 feet/370 meters up his own personal mountain. Join us this season at Area-241 as we show you what it’s like to own 40 acres, snowmobiles, a house and a chairlift in the middle of no where, for Flow’s “Chairlift Chronicles”
Sarka Pancochova (CZE) takes World Snowboard Tour Overall and Slopestyle trophies home.
’’I have been working really hard this season, training and competing, it’s the best reward to be the World’s top woman overall snowboarder, then all the hard work pays off!’’
Sarka showed consistency throughout her season in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe, coming second at the X Games Slopestyle contest in Aspen. Though not many female riders compete in both Slopestyle and Halfpipe regularly, Sarka did beat competitors like second placed Enni Rukajärvi (FIN), third placed Silvia Mittermüller (GER) and last year’s Champion Cilka Sadar (SLO), who came in fourth this year.

Down days are perfect for sightseeing the town of Valdez or there is plenty of other interesting things to do up at basecamp. But Thank Goodness we only had 2 down days out of 12!
Mornings look for this dude making announcements about whats going on at camp like snow science clinics, man games or I suggest make your own adventure as everyone that knows what’s up does. That’s what’s up…
Down days you could skeet shoot with Joey Weber’s shotgun or a partake in a little target practice with a hand cannon… 50 cal hand gun that is. AK resident Chris True brought all the Big Guns for this show…
Axe throwing go’s down all the time, but during down days you can’t just walk past the set up without throwing it… nice double exposure from my i-Phone as Brett chucks the axe.
Or on a down day you could go for a Glacier Tour, Flows Donnie Denton, EVO’s Joseph Nataro and Flows Kevin Addy at Worthington Glacier
At night once all the old washed up good for nothing campers go to sleep you might get board, remember you can always walk across the street to Camp One Love for a good time. Named that after the Bob Marley One Love Flag perched above their camp, it’s where all local kids from the city of Valdez set up basecamp. Each year they get creative with their set up, this year was no different; they had a snow-cave built next to their fire pit. Quite a good time and definitely a must if staying up at the Pass. Respect the Locals!!
This 18 yr old kid (Jens) was more worried about scratching his Dads Suburban then getting his sled out and back into the rig. Yes that is a 145 track snowmobile inside there… Only in AK
Mornings you gotta get going and get out, here some of the boys take off, eh…
More to come soon…
