Disposables 002: Moments in time from Mt. Bachelor, OR

We can’t get enough of the feeling of disposable cameras. It is a combination of having limited exposures, being fast, light, easy to use, and perhaps most importantly the completely unique aesthetic retained in each image. At Snowboard Mag, we are attracted to each and every one of these qualities, and what began as a fun habit quickly developed into a ritual for each trip we embark on. Disposables, is a new photo series featuring photos from our travels. Moments in time from when we hop on a plane until we warily unpack our bags. They aren’t all in focus or properly exposed, and they aren’t all great images; but each and every photo speaks to experience, and the many fragmented moments that together constitute travel and adventure.

Our second installment of Disposables documents our time spent in Bend, Oregon, riding at Mt. Bachelor earlier this winter. We were on a trip with only one goal, to gain first hand knowledge of the breeding ground that is Mt. Bachelor, and to experience everything that Bend had to offer.

We rode with Bend locals Austin Smith, Jared Elston, and Jonny Sischo, exploring the brand new Cloudchaser lift, (which opens Mt. Bachelor up to a full 360 degrees of rideable lift-access terrain.) We soaked in Turkish salt baths, visited Deschutes, Sun River, and 10 Barrel breweries, went moonlight snow-shoeing and chowed through pow on what is commonly considered a skatepark for snowboarders. It was a trip for the books and left us eager to return.

We strongly urge everyone jump on each and every opportunity they have to visit Mt. Bachelor. After all, we can show you all of the photos and videos in the world, but to get the full picture you’ll have to experience the Bachelor Party for yourself.
