The idea of “home” resonates differently for everyone. For some, your hometown can be a place you’re trying to escape from, but for others it has a magnetic pull that can’t be broken. Born and raised in the small town of Glacier, WA at the foot of Mt. Baker, Micah Evangelista was lucky enough to grow up with the North Cascades looming tall and snow covered in his backyard.
In this two year film project, Micah and his mother Julianne reflect on some of the moments and mindsets that have shaped his skiing and his youth. In an entirely foot-powered journey through the Mt. Baker backcountry, he now returns to some of his favorite zones and features with an eagerness to explore them like never before.
