Portland Snowpocalypse

 

This past week old man winter has been kind to some rather unusual locations. The city of Portland, Oregon recently played host to a rare snow storm.

Some of our Pacific Northwest affilaites took this opportunity to hit some very rare features in the Rose City.

A ROMEantic Snowpocalypse in Portland.

The city of roses, Portland Oregon, just received an extremely rare inner city dumping. Transforming one the best cities to skate, into a snowboard playground.

Rome’s NW rep, Jeff Rudinski rallied the homies, liquid incentives in hand for the 4 days of urban assault.

Much like Jeff’s Hemi, charging through the snowy streets, he led the charge strapped in from feature to feature, showing he isn’t just a guy with a job at a snowboard company. Dude’s just trying to ride his snowboard as much as possible with friends.

Friends we had; Cody Booth, Steve Pierce, Jerry, Drivebar, and Matt Gonzales.
It’s safe to say the funnest session of Portland’s 2014 #snowpocalypse, went down at the International Rose Test garden. The rose garden is the oldest public rose garden in the United States, a stunning place, and a priveledge to be able to snowboard in a landmark of coveted beauty like this.

Roses, romance, ROME-ANCE… eh? Maybe pushing it a little. Either way, I think we all fell in love with snowboarding a little more that day; Whether the roses had something to do with it or not.
