From backflips through old-growth trees to huge airs over raging summer creeks, the action begs the question: “How the hell did they do that?!” This segment from Valhalla stars Cody Barnhill, Sierra Quitiquit, Alex Monot, Pep Fujas, Zack Giffin, Eric Hjorleifson, Molly Baker, and Kazushi Yamauchi.
Beyond action sports – with Valhalla’s unique style and structure, Sweetgrass Productions has 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 complementing a more narrative-driven approach than any other ski movie before it, Valhalla follows 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 (filmed in BC and Alaska); Valhalla is a vivid explosion of colour, character, snow, and nostalgic soul.
