Livin’ Tiny: A Quest For Powder Video: A Tiny House in Action

This great video from Sam Giffen and sponsored by Outdoor Research (OR) proves that you can build your own tiny house, hook it up to a rusty truck named, “Rusty,” and go where the snow (and powder) is. I’m not sure if they had a Tumbleweed Tiny House, but it would sure work for your own powder quest!

The Outdoor Research Sidecountry skiers and snowboarders had to answer that question last year while traveling with their 112-square-foot tiny house in search of the ski bum’s dream—the perfect ski area parking lot. Where would the snow accumulate and who would welcome the tiny house with open arms? Colorado, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and British Columbia were just a few of their stops. Truck fires, avalanches, overnight drives and snowy roads were just a few of their roadblocks, but the tiny house persisted into the unforgiving depths of winter and reached ultimate summits. With new friends, unforgettable powder days and warm, cozy evenings by the tiny house fire, the crew will undoubtedly never forget their expedition. Even though they were livin’ tiny, it was an adventure of epic proportions.”
