Where would you go if your house were portable? Would you spend each night in a new spot? Stay camped in a discovered utopia forever? Or would you leave life as a vagabond to the experts? 

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. 

 

We invite you to experience their transportable abode through Sam Giffin’s Livin’ Tiny, an honest documentation of the epic road trip and plan your next great adventure, however tiny or large.
