LAKEVIEW, Ore. — KGW is sharing features by Rick Dancer, from ExplOregon the Backstories, a company focusing on the rural narrative of unique areas in Oregon

ExplOregon looks at rural Oregon. The storytelling venture tries to understand how these small communities, landscapes, and activities have something to add to the state's overall purpose. Ultimately, rural Oregon is a place of special moments and special people.

According to Dancer, "ExplOregon: The Back Stories is unique in that we allow Oregonians to tell their own story, in their own words, creating their own narrative. In this story about the Warner Canyon Ski Area you will discover what one town is doing to create community around snow, a mountain and each other."

ExplOregon is giving away a three-night Lake County Ski Adventure Package. Go to their YouTube Page ExplOregon The Back Stories. (The contest includes two ski passes, local gifts, and one night at the Summer Lake Hot Springs Resort. Entries are accepted through Friday, Jan. 18, 2019.) Subscribe to their page and tell why you want to visit Lake County and who you will take with you.

You can also check out other live and pre-produced videos of Lake County at the ExplOregon YouTube channel.
