A Seattle blogger has posted a video of the Ski to Sea race, fittingly for a site called "Best of the NW."
Bryan Schaeffer is founder of SINTR Visual Communications, which designs multimedia projects for corporate clients. He's also the brains behind bestofthenw.org, a year-long blog which documents some of the best trails, routes and destinations in the Pacific Northwest through weekly social video releases.
"They're like little teaser videos that give you an idea of what doing a trail or route is like. It's mostly about things to do for the weekend warrior," Schaeffer said. The videos also provide GPS information on routes and helpful links to other sites, like Washington Trails Association, which have more information about the subject matter.
