Check out this uniquely narrated film of Amie Engerbretson shredding up, and down, the backcountry. I thoroughly enjoyed the fresh style of this film.
“What is Snow Pony you ask? It is an exploration of the powder filled wonder of North America with the help and thrill of a throttle. I used to ride in the Truckee Rodeo and I always dreamt of being a rodeo queen. I wasn’t allowed to throw my hat in the ring because I didn’t own my own horse. I happily settled for the beer flag carrier between events atop a borrowed but trusty horse. Where do my skier and rodeo queen dreams meet? The moment I handed a country boy a stack of cash in rural Wyoming and got myself a snow pony…The thrill of the ride, buck and wild, all to land on top of untouched perfect snow, without a soul around.”
I have to admit I was slightly put off by the narrating voice of the sled at first, but it really grew on me throughout the film. It’s well-worth the watch.
