Oregon Coast resident Eric Davis and his daughter, Indra Davis, 5, took advantage of the recent rare big snowfall on the Oregon Coast to go snowboarding at Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area in Pacific City.

When Eric Davis lived in Montana, he went snowboarding as often as possible — sometimes on a daily basis.

Ever since the 39-year-old moved to the Oregon Coast, not so much.

“Our closest resort is not close at all, and coastal (snowstorms) are pretty rare,” he said.

But this past week, Davis, who owns and runs Oregon Coast Agates, an Instagram page where he posts information about the state’s most beautiful rocks, got to combine his love of the coast with his love of snowboarding after a rare snowstorm dumped 4 to 6 inches of fresh snow above the beach.

Davis and his 5-year-old daughter Indra didn’t waste the opportunity, loading up their snowboards and heading to Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area early Thursday morning.

Once there, they climbed up the Great Dune, a massive hill of mudstone and sandstone layers normally cloaked with sand. On this day, however, it was white.
