SOLITAIRE: A Backcountry Skiing, Snowboarding, and Telemark Film from Sweetgrass Productions In the high desert of South America, winter takes hold, devouring bleached bones and abandoned shacks. Into these most inhospitable of lands, a handful of drifters emerge from the whiteout, ready to cast their lot on forsaken peaks both merciless and magnificent. Venturing beyond the frontiers of most mountain films, Solitaire is backcountry skiing forged in the tradition of Western cinema. Born in the spires of Argentina’s legendary Las Lenas, a lonely two-year journey begins through an abandoned world, wandering the length of a continent from Peru’s Cordillera Blanca to Chilean Patagonia. Lost in the winds of snowbound badlands and the blizzards of primordial forests; seen from a horse’s saddle and a paraglider’s wings; ridden on ski and board and telemark... Solitaire fuses western-inspired tales of backcountry gambles into landscapes never before visited on film. Shot on location in: Las Lenas, Argentina; Portillo, Chile; Nevados de Chillan, Chile; Patagonia, Chile; Bariloche, Argentina; Caviahue, Argentina; Huaraz, Peru; Iquitos, Peru; Uyuni, Bolivia; and Sajama, Bolivia.

          Ep. 3 is an edit from the awesome early season park at Vierli. It's hastily made and a bit repetitive, we know, but we figured you've waited long enough since ep. 2.

            Tourist maps sometimes mark some routes with green color, implying beautiful scenery. One such area is Follsjøen, right outside Notodden in Telemark, used for recreation, fishing, swimming. And my canoe is placed there all season.

              From the orange and gold of fall to the pink cherry blossoms of spring, Signatures follows an entire winter deep in the hardwoods of Hokkaido, Japan. Deliciously deep January blower to April corn, we bring you a film about expression, and the art of riding on snow. Every turn has a personality, and every personality has it's own unique style: the air, the smear, the spin, the grab, the laid-out cutback carve. Shot in HD, Signatures is 100% human powered backcountry skiing in all snow-sliding styles: board, noboard, ski, and drop-knee.

                I planned a longer walk in the Mountain Ble, but after having biked 30 km with an advance in altitude of 680 meters, my motivation for mountain climbing had melted away. After all I had planned another 45 km on my old bike back home. So I ended up with a few km in the always wonderful Mountain Ble. My pocket camera, Kodak Playsport, and a monopod was all I cared to carry with me. These small impressions is only a taste of what the mountain can offer. I want to thank Rainbow Various for the wonderul music. Yes, I can feel Mother Earth under my feet, and that gives me enormous satisfaction.

                  Probably my last trip to Ble before the winter comes. Foggy, cold, and not to much light in November. But Mountain Ble is wonderful every season, with or without camera. Ble is right outside Notodden, Norway.

                    This video is about Mount Bohemia which is located in the northernmost part of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Mount Bohemia has the longest runs with the highest vertical and deepest powder in the Midwest. This hidden secret is a true treasure for backcountry skiers and riders. The average snowfall in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula is 273 inches. The lake effect snow is dry similar to western resorts and accumulates as powder which is untouched because they do not groom.

                      Flatdal means "Flat valley", and the valley itself is indeed flat. But on three sides there are steep mountains. These clips are some impressions from a couple of days ago. I often, and through the seasons, visit this peaceful place on Earth. Music: Pablo Lentini Riva / Jamendo.com
