This autumn, the annual tradition is back to salute the start of winter. The world’s biggest name in snow sports cinema—Warren Miller Entertainment—celebrates its 68th ski and snowboard film with downhill thrills, global adventure, and a nod to those who taught us to slide on snow.
Snow riders are a family—one big tribe comprising many smaller ones. 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 freshfaces, 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 NorthAmerica’s deepest lines in Jackson Hole, Montana, Silverton, Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows, andSteamboat. From splitboard to powsurfer, motorcycle, dogsled, and snowmobile, the athletes employ nearly all possible means to 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 Warren Miller’s veteran producer Josh Haskins.
“More often than not, it’s family whointroduces us to the sport or steers us on the path toward 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.”
Since 1949, ski families have cheered the official kick-off of winter with the ski film company thatstarted it all. As the family grows, the traditions grow richer.
