The Powder Road documents the dream of ski travel. It’s the story of a road trip from Colorado to Alaska in search of the best skiing on Earth. In February of 2005, with rumors of a big winter in Alaska, four friends left Boulder, Colorado, driving pickup trucks towing four-stroke snowmobiles and skis. The caravan moved northward and stopped in classic ski towns like Aspen, Colorado, and Jackson, Wyoming, before crossing the American/Canadian border and into the beautiful ranges of British Colombia, the Yukon, and Alaska. In search of untouched mountains to ski while camping and traveling in a self-sufficient style, the four met an array of characters, adventures, setbacks, and mountains only rivaled by the imagination. The Powder Road documents their journey and a lifestyle centered around the search for deep snow.
“The dreamlike tale of bliss and tribulation that draws back the veil—through stunning photography and introspective writing –on the life and times of powder addicts on the prowl. It encapsulates powder culture.” –The Denver Post—
