Perfect way to end another great year!



Here is a short clip from our trip to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort on the last day of 2015. Yes another PNW's blue bird, sun shine and no wind day of skiing and snowboarding. I'm the snowboarder (obviously) and Benjamin Dupont is the skier in the video. Happy new year everyone!

I preffer Crystal Mountain, WA any day



Although I opened the season at Mt. Baker, I'd prefer Crystal Mountain any day, if there is enough snow :) After a tough week at work, I thought I'd take the Friday off and go to Crystal Mountain for the first time this season. One of the best last minute decision this year since St Tropez, France.

I think I'm getting better at editing the videos I take however, I need to start shooting videos at higher frame rates than 60/sec for super slow motion clips. Flux is great but leaves a lot of distorted images trying to fill the frames.

Snowboarding Season Opens at Mt Baker, WA



Here is a short clip from my snowboard season opener last weekend. It was my first time at Mt. Baker ski area. Overall I really enjoyed it. It was bigger than Stevens Pass but smaller than Crystal Mountain. I'm very happy that I went but still debating if it's worth it to drive about 3 hours, since I can get to Crystal in only 2 hours from Seattle, WA.

GoPro: Fun stuff with friends at Lake Cle Elum, WA

A video posted by Korat (@kor_at) on

Here is a short edit from the videos I've shot on our day trip to Lake Cle Elum, WA near Roslyn, WA.

My very first time at Lake Cle Elum was in June. It was a very hot and a no wind day, so it looked like a tropical beach with sand and flat water. However, this time was very windy. We still had fun though.

Below, you can see some of my instagram posts from the same day.

Eurotrip 2015 - L'escalet Ramatuelle, France


After a long journey to 4 countries and 10 cities around the world, I'm back in Seattle once again. Here is a short clip from our day in L'escalet Ramatuelle, France.

First time I've been to L'escalet Ramatuelle and definitely in my top 3 beaches in the world. Crystal clear Mediterranean water, tiny private bays and sandy beaches... what else can you expect from a beach?!

Crystal Mountain, WA on the last day of 2014!



I cannot imagine any better way to end an amazing year. I was hesitant when I received a call from my skier buddy to go to the mountain on the last day of 2014.

Checked the weather, snow conditions... They were too good to be true. I was also assuming it would be very crowded since we received snow fall very late in the beginning of the snow season. I couldn't be more wrong.

Arrived to Crystal Mountain, WA about 9:00AM and voilaaaaa .... Good enough mostly packed snow, beautiful sunny day with no wind. You cannot ask for more.

Anyways, we shot a few videos and took bunch of photos. Everything was very scenic, colorful especially by the Green Valley. Since it was our second day of the season, we decided to stick to the slopes. Here is the short clip from yesterday. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did, while we shot it.
