Change is Coming

Editor's Note: Michael Dyrland put together this poignant piece that, despite looking like it was shot in July in the Cascades, was actually shot in mid-February this winter amid the horrendous, warm, and snowless winter in the PNW. It's the same kind of winter they're predicting to be normal in a few decades... alarmed yet?

“Change is Coming” by DYRLANDproductions.com

The year was 2014

Forecasters were calling for a good winter season

They said the storms were coming

Boy were they wrong.

Let's protect our winters…

This winter has been tough on the snow sports industry. A change in weather patterns is coming, and it doesn't look in our favor. This film was shot mid ski season when the average snowfall is around 100 inches. As you are about to see, on feb 16, 2015, there was an alarmingly lower than normal amount. Let's protect our winters before it's too late!

Results and Replay: FWT21 Stop #2 in Andorra

While the official first stop of the 2021 Freeride World Tour might have been canceled due to COVID-19, it didn’t stop the athletes and crew from spending an extra few days in Andorra to put on a replacement event that outdid the first stop, held last week! Again, the athletes dropped into The Port del Rat face – this time with a third start gate offering further creative options and a fresh layer of snow to entice the athletes to go even bigger. And go bigger they did. Congratulations to
