Saturday, Nov. 24, 7 p.m.—KILLINGTON— Warren Miller Entertainment (WME) is kicking off the season with its 69th installment ski and snowboard film, “Face of Winter. The late, great Warren Miller built his legacy capturing the essence of winter magic, and today that legacy launches the start of the ski and snowboard season every year. In the 69th feature film, celebrate the man who became known as the face of winter throughout the industry, and the places and people he influenced along the way.
Locally, the Killington Ski Club will host a screening as one of the official events at the FIS Ski World Cup at Killington Resort. See it Saturday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. at Snowshed Lodge at Killington Resort. Doors open at 6 p.m. The evening will include a raffle, pizza, beer and wine, plus a guest appearance by Cochran skier Jimmy Ryan, one of the athletes in “Face of Winter,” who will be signing posters. Tickets are $20 for adults, and $10 under age 12. Tickets are available at Killington Ski Club, Peak Performance Ski Shop, First Stop Ski Shop – all located in Killington – and at the door the night of the event.
This year, new and veteran athletes come together to pay tribute to the man who started it all, including Jonny Moseley, Marcus Caston, Seth Wescott, Forrest Jillson, Kaylin Richardson, Dash Longe, Anna Segal, Michael “Bird” Shaffer, and featured athletes of the U.S. Cross Country Ski Team, including gold medalist Jessie Diggins. Watch as they visit some of Warren Miller’s favorite places from Engleberg to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more.
“The film is for anyone whose life (whether they realize it or not) was impacted by Warren Miller,” said WME Managing Director Andy Hawk. “We are all the face of winter – from the athletes to the audience to the locals in far-off destinations or even at our home mountain. Warren recognized this, and this year’s film celebrates that.”
All fans, young and old, are invited to come together and carry on the tradition of the official kickoff to winter during the 2018 national tour. Film attendees will enjoy lift ticket and gear savings from Warren Miller resort, retail, and other brand partners.
All moviegoers will be entered to win nightly prizes like swag and ski vacations.
Later this season, catch the film as it tours other Vermont venues: Dec. 4-5 at Middlebury Town Hall Theater and Dec. 30 at Okemo Mountain Resort.
