That time of year is upon us when the nights grow longer and our thoughts turn increasingly mountain-wards. It has been too long since we last heard the gentle creak of fresh powder being pressed under a snowboard, so it is timely that we came across this trailer to sate our desire for alpine adventures. Valhalla is a feature length film by Sweetgrass Productions, a collective of filmmakers and adventurers that specialise in snow-riding in its myriad forms.
Part backcountry adventure, part philosophical narrative, Valhalla “is the tale of one man’s search to rediscover the freedom of his youth.” Admittedly, the voiceover smacks of overwrought melodrama, but the beautiful cinematography and sublime vistas are more than enough for me to forgive any sentimentalism. 1
