Valentines Day Release of Winter Wind song & music video! This video was filmed in Colorado March 2011 and is fun to watch back-to-back with January's Winter Wind (Winter Dance Remix) song & video! The songs have different vocal recordings, and both videos are edited differently with footage expressing themes matching the song production. The Winter Wind video begins in a winter forest and includes scenes at night outside a small western bar as the camera takes us up the chairlift to higher altitudes with breathtaking views.

Months later, the original vocals were recorded and mixed at the same time of the video being edited. Kahra was able to record scratch vocals with the track to her phone for the shooting of the video. The final version of the song was finished the same day as the video editing! Whew!! This song is dedicated to winter sport enthusiasts as well as those who have never had this snow experience. Enjoy the winter trip!
