Could Tiny Houses Save Ski Towns?

At their core, ski towns are made up of die-hard mountain lovers who are obsessed with snowy peaks, love the amazing but too-short summers, and who are willing to put up with the spring mud season. Unfortunately, rising housing costs are making it nearly impossible for snow lovers to “ski-bum-it” for one season or for twenty. Curbed Ski thinks that the tiny home movement might be just the thing to save a ski lifestyle at risk of extinction.” – Curbed Ski

Zach Giffin & Molly Baker Give a Quick Tour of the Outdoor Research Tiny House

In this, the second installation of our “En Route” series, we profile professional skiers Zach Giffin, Molly Baker and their Tiny House. A few years back they realized the house of their dreams wasn’t going to be the status quo; they wanted to feel at home while traveling from place to place in search of fresh snow. Those dreams fueled the construction of the 112 square-foot Tiny House they now live in. Thanks to the Tiny House, they’ve traveled thousands of miles, woken up to countless powder days, and been introduced to plenty of new friends.” – Goal Zero

Zach is also the host of a new tiny house television show called Tiny House Nation.

Tiny Ski House on the Move

Molly Baker is a not just a skier. She is a dancer, a lover of all things pastry, a runner, a temporary blueberry farmer (house painter, bartender, nanny, organic house cleaner…), a mountain biker and freerider in training, ex-canyoneer, reader, writer, thinker, hiker, simple exister, part-time nomad, and friend. She called Utah’s Wasatch mountains “home” for four years, but is always on the move.” –
