Sweetgrass Productions' VALHALLA
Starring Cody Barnhill, Sierra Quitiquit, Alex Monot, Pep Fujas, Zack Giffin, Eric Hjorleifson, Molly Baker, and Kazushi Yamauchi
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.
Kitsbow and Ibis have teamed up to bring you this action packed edit of notorious style master Jeff Kendall-Weed on the new 650B Ibis Mojo HD3: ibiscycles.com/bikes/mojo_hd3 on some of South Lake Tahoe's most legendary trails. The video was shot over the course of a weekend, most of the trails, and all of the features were new to Jeff.
Midway through a dry season, with scraggly trees, icy slopes, and hardly any base, Mount Baker suddenly finds itself consumed by the chaos of the year' biggest storm-- unleashing several feet of snow every night for ten straight days. Plows work around the clock to keep order, but still the ditches fill with battered cars fallen victim to the heavy drifts. As the snow tirelessly buries the mountain, and the warmth and color of the sun become distant memories, the DPS crew reaches the top to find themselves cradled in a monochromatic powder paradise, everything washed away in a rapture of white.

Arguably one of the top mountain bike trails on the planet. Linking up several Moab favourites, this trail spans almost 30 miles and has a cumulative descent of over 8,000 feet.
The beauty of this ride is not just the sheer scale of it - but its diversity. Starting in high alpine forest at Burro Pass, the ride transitions to aspens, high desert and finishes off plummeting down to the Colorado River on exposed singletrack.
The type of riding if vastly diverse as well: from slow, steep and technical rocky singletrack to wide open high speed sections and everything in between.
My first time doing this ride could only be described as 'complete sensory overload'
Riders: Chad G, Steve Cooke, Tom Bishop, Adam Simpson and myself.
