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 4: Zack Giffin Tears Up Mt. Baker Ski Area, the crew travels to Mt. Baker, a remote ski resort in northern Washington that receives the most annual snowfall of any ski area in the world. Graced with 641 inches annually, the abundant snow provides access to burly terrain, and in this video Baker local and pro skier Zack Giffin shows us why the resort is earning a big-time reputation.
