«RAIN DOGS» is a reference to Washington 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 even with rain so persistent it could soak through 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 and 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 and there. Collectively we tried our best to capture our turns in new surroundings, and are pretty darn surprised and happy with the outcome. Hope y’all enjoy it too!

This is a film that was shot on the weekend.

Many of you are no doubt familiar with the reality of trying to fit snowboarding around your lives, or your lives around snowboarding, and that’s what the film is about. All of these guys work regular jobs and have regular lives. Last winter finally delivered a whole load of snow to Austria, so we went out into our backyards, tried to have a good time and get after it as much as we could. We hope you can relate to this in some way, and that it makes you want to go and ride your snowboards.
