Everybody has a soundtrack for life. Mine is the background for exploring and getting outside in this mountain paradise we live in. I spend most my days at Eaglecrest, with other locals dedicated to searching for turns, having fun in the mountains and shredding. This series will focus on those locals and the tunes they listen to while shredding.
Shredder: Wendi Deschamps
What are you shredding? Today skis, but usually my snowboard.
Years Shredding: 25 years skiing and 15 years boarding.
What 3 tunes have you been shredding to lately?

Arctic Chinook is intended to demonstrate how local, state and federal agencies would respond to a simulated cruise ship accident. Coincidentally, a big luxury cruise ship will sail through the area while the exercise is under way. And to further complicate things, bad weather has just set in.
