Warren Miller’s new winter sports film to to be screened in Middlebury
MIDDLEBURY — Warren Miller Entertainment presents “Chasing Shadows” at Town Hall Theater on Wednesday and Thursday, Dec. 2 and 3, at 8 p.m. This year’s installment of the iconic winter sports film series celebrates why skiers and snowboarders commit themselves every winter to a passion that’s guaranteed to melt away every spring. And, as always, Warren Miller’s annual film tradition marks the beginning of colder weather, winter exploration and premier cinematography that reignites the excitement for winter sports. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and in this year’s film, “Chasing Shadows,” skiers and snowboarders find that very freedom as they chase storms, snow and lines on the world’s highest peaks.
Follow the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding on a breathtaking cinematic journey. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, Steven Nyman, Marcus Caston, Ingrid Backstrom and more as they pursue turns on the mountains of our dreams — the French Alps, Alaska’s Chugach, Utah’s Wasatch, the Chilean Andes and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya.
“This year’s film will inspire viewers to search out their dreams and find freedom,” says Director of Cinematography Chris Patterson, who has been making films with Warren Miller for 24 years. “Our athletes show us that anything is possible if your passions and desires are in the right direction.”
Take a glimpse into the world of the U.S. freestyle team and the snowsports that live on the fringe, like monoskiing, powdersurfing and speedriding. Then explore what it is about: culturally rich locations and snow-covered summits that motivate passionate skiers and snowboarders to keep searching and chasing after a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn each winter and for a lifetime more.
Attending a Warren Miller film is a tradition that marks the start to every winter season. Each attendee will receive exclusive resort and retail savings from Warren Miller resort, retail and manufacturer partners with the best values in the industry. Additionally, moviegoers have a chance to win ski vacations, ski and snowboard gear, swag and the opportunity to meet athletes featured in the film.
