The Good Life Pacific Northwest Series is a video documentary that chronicles four of the best ski mountains in the Northern Cascades during a ten-day road trip. Watch as Liam Doran and the production crew at ONTHESNOW set out to discover the throwback resorts that have developed a cadre of powder hounds while attracting minimal fanfare compared to internationally-renowned resorts in Utah, Colorado, and California.
Their journey begins at Mt. Hood Meadows in Oregon, and then heads north to Crystal Mountain, Stevens Pass, and Mt. Baker in Washington. Each of these four episodes showcase a different mountain, and along the way we meet the local skiers who provide us with an insider look at the world-class, but only regionally known, terrain. Join us for the next four days as we share one of these videos a day to help define the skiing in this often-overlooked region.
In Part 1, Powder at Mt. Hood Meadows, local ski patroller Jeff Ferragi shows us the natural terrain park that is Mt. Hood Meadows, which is known as having the widest range of terrain of the handful of resorts on Mt. Hood. While popular among Portlanders, the 2,777-foot vertical drop and over 2,150 skiable acres makes it a mountain that can keep its secrets.
