New Sweetgrass Valhalla Trailer

Post by blogger | August 13, 2013      

The iconography in this new Sweetgrass film trailer is evocative especially when a tinge of winter tickles our faces in the mornings at WildSnow HQ. Speaking of which, the agenda up at Field Headquarters has been shed building. We’re making some halfway decent storage that’ll help organize everything from spare skis to snow tires. Sort of a Valhalla for the materialistic burden that our Volkswagen driving protagonist in the Sweetgrass trailer is leaving behind as he heads north to revel in the crystal H20 that’s still of this earth, but in a way, not.


WildSnow toy/tool shed in the making. It sits on a water tank enclosure we built last summer that needed a roof. 14x8 feet dimension resulting in modest 112 square feet, but still enough room to be useful. The tank enclosure works for a bit of storage space but is somewhat humid due to how sealed up it is, so we have to be careful what we keep under there. In winter, snowpack will cover up the stairs so we'll end up with year-around access and no show shoveling. Roof is engineered for 200 pounds per square foot snow load, which is the dream Valhalla winter.
