Episode XII: Two Years, Five Winters: In the super-size finale of the 'On the Road with Solitaire' series, the crew returns from the wilds of South America to a new kind of mania-- three weeks deliriously editing two years of footage into a feature film before taking it on a 4-month whirlwind tour across the nation. After a reflection on the uncountable successes and failures of a film too weird for the ski world, the road continues onward for the Sweetgrass tribe as they plan their next cinematic foray into the winter unknown... two years and five winters after they began the film that eventually became 'Solitaire.'
ON THE ROAD WITH SOLITAIRE is a 12-part web series following Sweetgrass Productions in the making of their 2-year project, the South American backcountry ski and snowboarding film SOLITAIRE.

Huge thanks to all our clients, friends, families and fellow artists!
The world is filled with noise. Make room for silence. Arc’teryx runner Adam Campbell stars in a story with no words. Shot on the streets of Vancouver and the high country around Whistler, Silence is the story of every runner, climber and skier who chases passion rather than the modern world’s trappings. Headphones recommended.

...Spinning through the world, half musicians, half tornadoes, they carry with them a uniquely contagious will to live. Not in the sense of staying alive - far from it - but rather in living each day fearlessly, creatively, spontaneously and generously. -Forest Woodward
