Today in Stoke: Sweetgrass Productions' Solitaire heads South for summer ski, snowboard action

Solitaire, the new backcountry skiing and snowboarding film from Colorado-based Sweetgrass Productions and director Nick Waggoner, isn't scheduled for its Denver premiere until September 16 when the Fall flick frenzy gets into full swing. That hasn't stopped the company from dribbling out sweet little teaser tastes: On the Road with Solitaire (first four of twelve planned installments, after the jump) documents the film crew's adventures in South America over the last two years and doubles as a nice reminder that the endless winter could be yours, too: Next month the Sweetgrass Productions crew is headed for Peru and Bolivia to get the final footage they need to finish their epic.
