The Forecaster

4 mins


Drew Hardesty wakes up early every day and skins up the mountain to examine the snowpack — building snow-pits, inspecting individual snowflakes, recording temperatures and carefully testing aspects. The Forecaster is a short film that provides the visual reel behind the daily reports on the radio, offering a glimpse into the everyday tasks required to help keep the masses safe in the backcountry.
