This narration featuring the voice of Wisconsin author Michael Perry begins the first segment of the all-new Wisconsin Winter From the Air, coming in November from Wisconsin Public Television.
We all know it’s coming… that first real snowfall. The colors of autumn faded long ago, and a new season begins. Fresh white blankets the ground, and the familiar path becomes a new trail. Everything is changed. Winter in Wisconsin doesn’t really feel ‘here’…until that first snow. There are bound to be many chilly mornings ahead, and more snowfalls to come, but there’s something about that first one, something about a Wisconsin winter that always seems…just a little magical.
As with 2014’s visually stunning Wisconsin From the Air, take to the sky once again to capture the wonder of winter, a season that transforms the state’s landscape.
Enjoy this sneak peek, mark your calendar for the premiere date and share this video with your friends. We’ll be sharing even more exclusive content from the show in the coming weeks!
Come Soar With Us Again! Wisconsin Winter From the Air
Coming to Wisconsin Public Television
at the end of November 2016
In Wisconsin From the Air, we took flight above the state we call home. Now, Wisconsin Winter From the Air – an all-new, visually stunning program – takes us into the sky again as we capture the wonder of a winter season that transforms the state’s landscape. This time, we’ll fly over some of Wisconsin’s most beloved landmarks and travel inside some of the active pastimes that bring us out into the cold to explore.
Loft above running rivers and frozen fields, soar over lighthouses and cityscapes, ski down snow-covered hills and across wandering trails and snowmobile along icy lakes.
As we anxiously await this exciting new show, we want you to be the first people to take a look inside the program
Today, we are sharing an exclusive first look and in coming weeks we will send you new segments from the program. We hope you will mark your calendar for the premiere date and share this video with your friends!
