KORUA Shapes – Rain Dogs

RAIN DOGS is a reference to Washington State’s “finest” Rainier Beer, which kept the Korua Shapes crew hydrated during their road trip through the PNW in February of 2020 BC (Before Covid). It’s also a slight hint to the predominantly moist weather they experienced on their visit State-side. A trip where their 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 their spirits or stop their mission to film Yearning For Turning in the Pacific North West. 

The guys at Korua Shapes 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 they tried their best to capture their turns in new surroundings, and are pretty darn surprised and happy with the outcome. Hope y’all enjoy it too!
