As the snow begins to fly around the country the feeling of winter is in the air.
It arrives right about this time each year…another thing that occurs like clockwork each snow season is the release of the annual Warren Miller ski film!
This will mark the 65th installment of this classic series. It all began when filmmaker Warren Miller would show his skiing and surfing films to friends, making jokes about each scene throughout the showing. Invitations started rolling in to show and narrate his films at parties and it occurred to him that this hobby might actually be a great business idea. His first film was released in 1950. It was titled Deep and Light. In each flick, you are guaranteed great photography, narrative humor and broad appeal. Warren himself has not been involved with films bearing his name since 2004, but the annual tradition continues.
This year’s release should live up to the expectations of the past. Staying true to Miller’s style the athletes will chase snow all around the globe. Scenes are shot in Greece, Japan, Switzerland, France, Norway, Montana, Alaska and Colorado. You can expect to see all the biggest names in the sport. For the Tahoe Locals the movie features Squaw Valley skier JT Holmes and narrator Jonny Moseley.
If this is your first one or you’ve seen all 65…Warren Miller movies are not just another film, it’s an experience.
