Creator Series film 1/9: From Slide to Ride

Race Face Creator Series presents: From Slide to Ride
Filmmaker: Skye Shillhammer

Darrington, Washington, sits nestled in the western slopes of the Cascade Mountains. This once prosperous logging town is now struggling to find an outlet for its community members and is working to fulfill the economic void once supported by the timber industry. On March 22, 2014, a landslide covered 49 homes, and claimed the lives of 43 people. This tragedy brought the community together, as they poured everything they had into the recovery. From this disaster, came the time to build a new identity, one rallying around the rugged and beautiful landscape surrounding the city. This is the story of how a natural disaster brought a town together and how mountain biking could bring inspiration back to the youth, and value to the community as a whole.
