Teaser: Four rippers chase the dream in “Storm Cycles: Railroaded with Amtrak”
“Six skiers, born in snow and ice, are descending from the mountains of their natural habitat and emerging in a chaotic and unfamiliar environment, the metropolis. The staging ground for those seeking the unique experiences only previously shared by ramblers who have long chased storms from the comfortable shelter of train cars. Sauntering between resort and backcountry locations, these mysterious, enigmatic, migratory drifters have inspired a new generation of ski traveler who are now embarking on a similar journey as those who have come before them, in search of deep snow and rich experiences this #AmtrakSeason.”
We invite you to follow Whit Boucher, Caleb Brown, Hayden Price and Thayne Rich over a four-part web series as they utilize Amtrak’s Empire Builder and Cascade Lines to chase storms across the northern United States in Storm Cycles: Railroaded with Amtrak. With stops in West Glacier, Montana—exploring near Glacier National Park with Greg Fortin and Glacier Adventure Guides, to night skiing at Great Northern Powder Guides in Whitefish, to the eye of the storm in Stevens Pass, Washington and the incredible landscape of Whistler, British Columbia, the team takes you on a kick-ass powder chasing adventure in some of the best locations in North America.
