Rain Dogs

Yearning for turning in the Pacific Northwest

«RAIN DOGS» is a reference to WA State’s “finest” Rainier Beer, which kept us hydrated during our road trip through the PNW in February of 2020 BC (Before Covid). It’s also a slight hint to the predominantly moist weather we experienced on our visit State-side. A trip where our rental car smelled like a pack of wet dogs 24/7 and rain so persistent it could soak through even the toughest of Gore-Tex, it could not dampen our spirits or stop our mission to film Yearning For Turning in the Pacific North West. We had an absolute blast navigating the slopes of Baker, Crystal & Bachelor, linking turns on every type of snow imaginable, making new friends in the lift lines and down at the pub, eating day-old pizza from the tailgate in the parking lot, and drinking a couple Rain Dogs here & there. Collectively we tried our best to capture our turns in unknown territories, and are pretty darn happy with the outcome. Hope y’all enjoy it too!
