This is a must see film! 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. Enjoy! Continue reading
This a great short film featuring free-ride skier Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and big mountain snowboarder Lucas Debari. They step out of their elements and make an attempt to climb, ski and snowboard Denali. Sage and Lucas get a helping hand from a huge cast of seasoned and professional climbers and ski mountaineers from the North Face Athlete Team, including Hilaree O’Neill, Conrad Anker, Ingrid Backstrom, Jim Zellers, Emilio Previtali and Giulia Monego, as the two embark on the hardest expedition of their lives. Enjoy!
I love seeing young local people creating fun films like this one. Kalum Ko shot this on a Canon T2i. I have the same camera, so I am now inspired to film lots this season. Check out some of Kalum Ko’s other videos at http://vimeo.com/kalumko
