Everything else will be canceled. Exploration is not. Watch two Eddie Bauer athletes discover epic new lines in the North Cascades.

Venture outside, breathe fresh air, scout out fresh lines – that’s what Eddie Bauer athlete Drew Tabke and athlete and Pilot Lexi DuPont reached this November.

In this 4-minute short film, the two athletes reflect on the uncertainty of the past year and discuss how setting goals and venturing outdoors can bring something “normal” back into their lives.

The duo’s reconnaissance mission took them to the North Cascade Mountains of Washington state in a small two-seater.

“Early ski season awareness missions are a skier’s annual exercise to set goals, explore new zones and get inspiration for the season ahead,” said Dupont.

“To return to normal, it is more important to recognize this ritual. Powder dreams will not be canceled in 2020. “
