Today, I woke up on my friend Keith's couch, got picked up with him by his friend Stu, and headed into the mountains. 25 minutes up Highway 32 is a small town named Forest Ranch, where it snows in the winter time. It just so happens that the elementary school there is the most perfect place ever to hit some urban snowboarding. We came there for this huge 30 ft rail, but once we got there this feature off the slide in the playground was already built! While shooting it and looking around, I spotted a sick roof drop, so we headed over and built a quick landing. After seshing the roof, we headed over to the rail, which was the reason we came there. While building the run-in, the janitor for the school came over. We thought it was an instant bust, but she ended up being totally into it and down! She even hooked us up with two snow shovels to make the digging easier!! Only in Chico...Anyways, here are the photos, and there is an video coming soon! Enjoy...
