DPS just released this face melting edit from some of the deepest skiing we’ve ever seen. Five minutes of OTH, BD, suffocatingly awesome pow skiing from Baker. If you watch one edit all week, this should be it. Straight up ski porn…Winter is here. Get psyched.
Midway through a dry season, with scraggly trees, icy slopes, and hardly any base, Mount Baker suddenly finds itself consumed by the chaos of the year’ biggest storm– unleashing several feet of snow every night for ten straight days. Plows work around the clock to keep order, but still the ditches fill with battered cars fallen victim to the heavy drifts. As the snow tirelessly buries the mountain, and the warmth and color of the sun become distant memories, the DPS crew reaches the top to find themselves cradled in a monochromatic powder paradise, everything washed away in a rapture of white.
*BD: Balls Deep – pow so deep it literally hits your balls while standing in it.
*OTH: Over the Head – when skiing in the powder snow, the white stuff is constantly going over your head.
