Tiny House Tour 2014: Episode Three - Best in Snow www.outdoorresearch.com As skiers we either have them or we have friends with them-those furry creatures that freak out in a snow frenzy anytime they're let loose on a mountain. As skiers, we have dogs.

 

Outdoor Research Sidecountry Sessions Episode 2 takes the tiny house crew South to Colorado San Juans, where they find grassroots ambassador Steve Mead. 

 

The crew parks the Tiny House another week in Sidecountry heaven -- a.k.a. Whitewater, B.C. -- to rip it up in waist-deep blower and welcome a real-life mountain man to the Outdoor Research ambassador team.

 

The crew talks about the importance of Rob LaPier, and the passion he brings to skiing fresh powder. They wrap up their time in the Tiny House and close out their two-month tour in Jackson Hole, WY. They are already dreaming of next season.

 

We found this great pottery on an island five miles from ours, it took five hours and two ferry rides to get there. We were so impressed at the quality of work and the steady line at the cash register, that we sent our son Sam back to make a film about it.
