At first I was like, how did they do this? Is it green screen? Then I realised these guys actually were skiing in the forest. Pretty dam surreal piece of work I must say. Now I wanna watch the whole movie.

an excerpt from Sweetgrass Productions’ VALHALLA
From backflips through old growth trees to huge airs over raging summer creeks, the action begs the question: “How’d the hell they do that?!” For the full feature length film, head here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/id716816948

Beyond action sports– with Valhalla’s totally unique style and structure, we’ve recognized an opportunity to put a daring new spin on the ski film, exploding the boundaries of the genre, opening the eyes and melting the hearts of any story-loving soul. With hard-hitting ski and snowboard action complimenting a more narrative-driven approach than our past films, or perhaps any other ski movie before it, we follow one man’s escape into the Northern woods, and his wild journey towards satisfaction, understanding, and love in some of the deepest snows on earth.
Weaving story and character with award-winning, face-melting backcountry ski and snowboard cinematography; Valhalla is a vivid explosion of color, character, snow, and nostalgic soul.
