This film has all the ingredients for an epic winter adventure: a 60 year old school bus, blower powder, beer, friends, and the open road.

Picture Clothing's new film, "Made in Voyage: The Adventure of the Honey House", is a 26-minute ski film. But it's less about the slopes and more about getting there. It's upbeat, with bright colors and picturesque wide-angle shots of snow-covered roads.

The film follows Cody Cirillo and Kellyn Wilson on their adventure in the unknown in their renovated 1960s school bus. You'll find snow through Utah, Washington, and British Columbia.

"With the story by Paddy O'Connell, the cinematography inspired by Wes Anderson is supposed to be more than a ski film," says the film description.

"This film is essentially the culmination of a three-year art project," explained Cirillo. "We bought an old broken bus without any mechanical or structural knowledge and built a rolling ski house that we couldn't be more proud of."
