Nick Waggoner and Zac Ramras spent the better part of two years on foot, horseback, and ski-skins traveling between some of South America’s most desolate mountains. The end product of their effort, Solitaire, is among the most stunning ski films ever shot. The film features 31 different skiers and snowboarders, two of whom, Arne Backstrom and Kip Garre, passed away during production. Solitaire has been selected for the Banff and Telluride Mountainfilm festivals, and won the IF3 festival award for best cineomatography. 55 Minutes
