Fresh Flakes with Randal Seaton


I’ve had the pleasure of following Randal around Mt. Bachelor with a camera for the past two seasons. He can be elusive, likely due to the fact that he works full time, year-round in Bend. When we do link up I am always blown away by how well he rides right out of the gate. As a filmer I have learned to never take a warm up lap with Randal because he doesn’t need one. As a testament to this, most of this edit was filmed in one morning over the course of three hours.

On that morning I met up with Randal, Josh Dirksen, and Jared Elson in an empty Sunrise parking lot at Mt. Bachelor on a sleeper pow day. We went straight for summit and dropped off the backside to find a pristine cornice line blanketed in over a foot of the Pacific Northwest’s finest cold smoke. What transpired is well documented in Episode 2 of this seasons Bachelor Party web series and in the above edit of Randal handling some of the most unique natural terrain on the continent with ease. He is perhaps one of snowboarding’s most underrated riders and given that his style and ability make cutting his clips a painstaking endeavor I imagine that his riding will continue to shine bright for years to come, whether that’s off the radar or smack dab in the middle of it. – JP Schlick

    Great Edit and riding! Crazy they are bootpacking a bc session! Can’t boot pack like that in utah powder, but I guess that’s the trade for bottomless salty dry powder!!!!

      That pow looks pretty dry to me bud. Also spot could be on resort would have a base. It would be hikable if you are in shape. Hiking spots that are hard to get to is worth getting the shot on a day like that.

    This is an invite to my final showdown. I want every dope smoking piece of fucking dog shit on this website to come to mission ridge this next winter to witness me doing the impossible (for me): a frontside boardslide on a 15 foot down rail. Thats right you fucking pieces of shit. You can all come and spectate as I rise to the occasion after years of disappointment and trying to figure out which anti depressants dont give me erectile dysfunction. For years I have sat in silence watching others progress and have fun, and now it is my time. I want every last one of you stoners to come and watch as I prove for the last time that not only am I better than everyone else at snowboarding but that I also have a respectable job working at the fire-department where I make a decent living.


    JP you sound cool .. wana meat up for some good old country style ANAL SEX ? ITS WHAT WERE INTO ..
