Have you had a chance to watch Sweet and Sour Movie yet?
If not, the film is available online HERE and it’s a great film!
A segment of the movie was filmed at Silvertip Lodge last February. Athletes Richard Permin and Victor de Le Rue spent two weeks with us, exploring the Cariboo Mountains and filming many of the beautiful powder shots shown in the film.
The Silvertip narrative starts at 19 min 20 sec. Most of the film is focused on “Alaska” but the tale is more about the journey of Richard and Victor getting to Alaska, which Silvertip Lodge was a big piece of, even if just lightly mentioned.
Congratulations to all on making this one-of-a-kind inspirational film.
“Sweet and Sour Movie looks into the lives of Richard Permin (skier) and Victor de Le Rue (snowboarder). Experience the joys, the fears, the challenges, and the thrills of shredding Alaska with two of the world’s very best. Experience the Sweet and the Sour. Beginning from two very different places, both athletes decide to join forces and travel deep into Alaska in search of shared challenges and rewards. Richard and Victor might have been going to Alaska in two totally different frames of mind, but both have their eyes on the same shared prize: deep Alaskan powder.
