Snowriding families have been celebrating the kickoff to winter and the ski/ride season by watching Warren Miller films for decades. I experienced my first Warren Miller movie in the early 70’s at the Balsams Hotel after a day skiing at Wilderness Ski Area in Dixville Notch, NH. I recall watching Winter People, one of his all-time classics.
Waterville Valley Resort and Degan Media are hosting the local premiere of Warren Miller Entertainment’s newest film Line of Descent on Friday, Nov. 24 at the Flying Monkey Movie House & Performance Center (39 Main St., Plymouth, NH). There will be two showings – at 4 and 8 p.m. Tickets are $18 per person and can be purchased online here.
Snowriders are a family—one big tribe. Familial rites pass down through generations. Skier roots grow deep in high mountain soil. Line of Descent celebrates just that, the lineage of legendary athletes through a multi-generational cast of skiing’s icons and fresh faces, including Tommy Moe, Jonny Moseley, JT Holmes, Lexi duPont, Seth Wescott, Kalen Thorien, Marcus Caston, Jeremy Jensen, Griffin Post, and more.
Ride along on a stunning cinematic journey as we travel near and far, descending some of North America’s deepest lines in Jackson Hole, Montana, Silverton, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, and Steamboat.
From powsurfer to splitboard, motorcycle, dogsled or snowmobile, watch as athletes chase winter along the Beartooth Pass, the French Alps, New Zealand, British Columbia, and Norway.
“This season, we explore how skiers are shaped by picking up a pair of skis for the first time,” notes producer Josh Haskins. “More often than not, it’s family who introduces us to the sport or steers us on the path towards an ongoing passion—be it a ski bum lifestyle, a professional career or simply the desire to pass on the same feeling to the next generation. There is a kinship unlike any other in the ski community, and Warren Miller is the elder, bringing generations of skiers and riders together for 68 years, and this year is no different.”
