Editor's Note: We couldn't help but notice a string of excellent photos shot on Mt. Hood by PM Photos recently. Turns out that PM stands for Paz Mendez, a Govy-based photographer specializing in snow, skate, families and nature. Paz and his partner Tara agreed to share some shots from two lively events at Timberline: the Airblaster Board Games April 16th and the Yobeat Long Jump April 17th. Paz's photos capture the essence of the Timberline park scene as summer approaches and snowboarders and freeskiers from near and far descend on Mt. Hood for the longest snow season in North America. Big thanks to Paz, Tara and PM Photos.
