Watching this action-packed and humorous film is often the kickoff for the ski season. The annual Warren Miller film is a ritual this time of year for both skiers and snowboarders.
This fall, Warren Miller Entertainment releases Chasing Shadows, the 66th edition of its annual winter sports film. This year’s installment of the iconic winter sports film series celebrates why skiers and snowboarders commit themselves every winter to a snow sport passion.
Miller’s annual film tradition marks the beginning of colder weather, winter exploration and premier cinematography that reignites the excitement for winter sports. Warren Miller Entertainment has been a pioneer in action sports cinematography since 1949.
Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom.” In Chasing Shadows, skiers and snowboarders find that very freedom as they chase storms, snow and lines on the world’s highest peaks.
Among the California showings will be:
• Squaw Valley, Nov. 27-28: Olympic Village Lodge
• Grass Valley, Nov. 28: Nevada Union High School
• South Lake Tahoe, Dec. 4-5: Harrah’s
• Modesto, Dec. 4-5: State Theater
The film follows some of the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding on a breathtaking cinematic journey. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, Steven Nyman, Marcus Caston, Ingrid Backstrom and more as they pursue turns on the mountains of many skier’s dreams – French Alps, Alaska’s Chugach, Utah’s Wasatch, Chilean Andes and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya.
Other destinations include Nepal, Colorado, Wyoming, Alaska, Italy, Japan and Switzerland.
“This year’s film will inspire viewers to search out their dreams and find freedom,” says Director of Cinematography Chris Patterson, who has been making films with Warren Miller for 24 years. “Our athletes show us that anything is possible if your passions and desires are in the right direction.”
The film takes a glimpse into the world of the U.S. freestyle team and the snowsports that live on the fringe, like monoskiing, powsurfing and speedriding. Then explore what it is about culturally rich locations and snow-covered summits that motivate passionate skiers and snowboarders to keep searching and chasing after a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn each winter and for a lifetime more.
Each attendee of Chasing Shadows will receive exclusive resort and retail savings from Warren Miller resort, retail and manufacturer partners with the best values in the industry. Additionally, moviegoers have a chance to win ski vacations, ski and snowboard gear, swag and the opportunity to meet athletes featured in the film.
