The Warren Miller Australia & New Zealand is ready to kick off the season with its 69th ski and snowboard film, Face of Winter presented by Macpac.

This year, new and veteran athletes, including Australia’s own Anna Segal, come together to pay tribute to the man who started it all, the late great Warren Miller. Watch as they visit some of Warren’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,” says 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 2019 national tours. All moviegoers have the chance to win nightly prizes like swag and major prizes such as ski vacations, skis, heli trips and more.
