Here, There & Everywhere

It’s been 67 years since ski-film pioneer Warren Miller picked up a camera to capture the wonder, the adventure, the humor and the beauty that is skiing. Since that time, Warren Miller film crews have traveled the globe—from storied slopes to hidden, snow-covered corners—to celebrate all things snowsports. Their quest has taken powder-hungry filmgoers, well, Here, There & Everywhere—and this year continues that legacy.

It starts with Here. Because that’s what every snow adventure is ultimately about: being really here—in the moment. In this 67th annual Warren Miller film, here is a freeski adventure with Ingrid Backstrom and Wendy Fisher in Crested Butte. It’s a powder day with the ski patrol for Kaylin Richardson, Matt Elliott and Marcus Caston at Kicking Horse, B.C. And it’s every other stunning locale the film takes you, from the steeps of Squaw Valley to the big air at Fenway Park (yes, that Fenway Park).

The film also journeys There, that place we dream about whenever we’re not in the mountains. It sweeps across the expanses of Alaska, between the backcountry yurts of Western Montana’s Glacier Country, and down the slopes of Deer Valley as we pay homage to the great Stein Eriksen. It spurs us toward adventure, toward the undeniable turns we’ll take this year, as soon as the snow begins to fall.

And before we know it, we’ve been Everywhere—crossing Greenland by dog sled with Rob Kingwill and Seth Wescott, and following Jess McMillan and Grete Eliassen on a Swiss holiday aboard the Glacier Express. All along the way, Warren Miller himself spins tales as only Warren can do, reminding us that through the years, Warren Miller films have truly taken audiences Here, There & Everywhere.
