Living Tiny - A Quest For Powder

Where would you go if your house were portable? Would you spend each night in a new spot? Stay camped in a discovered utopia forever? Or would you leave life as a vagabond to the experts?The Outdoor Research Sidecountry skiers and snowboarders had to answer that question last year while traveling with their 112-square-foot tiny house in search of the ski bum’s dream — the perfect ski area parking lot. Where would the snow accumulate and who would welcome the tiny house with open arms? Colorado, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and British Columbia were just a few of their stops. Truck fires, avalanches, overnight drives and snowy roads were just a few of their roadblocks, but the tiny house persisted into the unforgiving depths of winter and reached ultimate summits. With new friends, unforgettable powder days and warm, cozy evenings by the tiny house fire, the crew will undoubtedly never forget their expedition. Even though they were livin’ tiny, it was an adventure of epic proportions. We invite you to experience their transportable abode through Sam Giffin’s Livin’ Tiny, an honest documentation of the epic road trip and plan your next great adventure, however tiny or large.

Sometimes, with the pressure involved with shooting segments in faraway places of the world, our athletes can forget why they came out there in the first place: to have fun and enjoy the incredible feeling sliding on snow gives. Well, not Tim Durtschi, who can find the humor in anything and has more than his fair share of moments creatively goofing off in the backcountry. Check out the next episode of Rogue Beings, an inside look at the amazing athletes behind our film Rogue Elements.

Ever Wonder How Dane Tudor Shreds Pow So Hard?

It’s no secret that to sustain a career as professional skier, you have to put in the off-season training hours. That doesn't just mean going to South America for a few weeks or riding your bike once the trails dry up, but it means hitting the gym and using every chance you can get to gain strength for the winter. Scott multisport athlete Dane Tudor spends much of his winter on huge backcountry ski missions with the TGR crew, but his off-season is anything but “off”. He is busy putting in
