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.
