Byron Bagwell hails from sunny, Southern California. At some point in his early twenties, he decided to trade in the concrete wave of L.A. for the great white wave.  Since then, months have blurred into years. Byron now resides in Bellingham, Washington, where he splits his time riding the chairs at Mt. Baker and touring the extensive backcountry of the Cascade Range. “For me, exploration is a must,” Byron said. “I have been fortunate to see Austrian sunrises and Chilean sunsets — all because of snowboarding.”

Q & A

Tough one, a lot of trips blend together but I'd have to say the British Columbia backcountry huts take the cake. There is something about being able to walk out the front door and drop in. Sleep, eat, splitboard, and repeat - such a radical cycle!

The open road known as the powder highway. I can't wait to ride! I'm also trying to get back to Japan again if possible.

 

The Baker locs clad in black from head to toe. Dudes don't care about media or hype, trends take a back seat to adrenaline. I love this place for that.

Life, Judy Wagner, my family both blood and brothers, dogs, adrenaline, the belief that being positive will pay off no matter the situation, and above all else - Karma.
