Winter sports hounds can experience the ultimate in winter thrills and chills at the at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Nov. 29 at 7:30 p.m.

Warren Miller Entertainment brings Chilliwack the highly-anticipated 64th annual film, featuring skiers as diverse as the terrain, with World Cup champions, legendary ski mountaineers and veterans of the new school in a jaw-dropping film that will take your breath away.

“We spent the winter in search of amazing terrain and deep snow, with some of the world’s top skiers in some of the world’s hardest to access ski locales,” said Max Bervy, Managing Director. “We’re excited to introduce winter sports fans to the newest release from Warren Miller Films and look forward to debuting Ticket to Ride this fall.”

Staying true to its name, the latest in a series, presented by The Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, takes ski fans on an action-packed ride to the world’s most exotic destinations, including The Alaskan Tordrillos, Switzerland’s Jungfrau, Iceland’s Troll Peninsula and beyond. The skiers starring in Ticket to Ride include World Cup champions, legendary ski mountaineers and veterans of the new school. Witness athletes at their career-best, and discover the paths that put them at the top of the steepest peaks in the 64th annual ski and snowboard film, Warren Miller’s Ticket to Ride.

Look for world-class action sport athletes including World Cup champions and Olympians Seth Wescott, Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso, plus legendary ski mountaineers like Chris Davenport, and freeskiers Colby James West and Sean Pettit. Park & pipe veteran Gretchen Bleiler throws down in Aspen proving “girls can look like girls and still rip.” An all-female cast of Jess McMillan, Julia Mancuso and Sierra Quitiquit explore the expansive terrain that is Iceland’s Troll Peninsula, and a snowboard segment in Valdez brings two legends, Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill, together for a rowdy, big mountain adventure.

Come experience the immense energy of the world’s most sought-after destinations, and discover the “epicenter of big lines” in Alaska, Montana’s Big Sky Country and the exotic winter playgrounds of Kazakhstan, Iceland and Greenland. The trams and trains in Switzerland will climb to Mt. Eiger, as the fishing boats in Norway carry you to the islands of Ålesund. Once again, winter begins with Warren Miller, and it’s time to get your Ticket to Ride.

Producing the annual feature film is always an exciting experience, but the uncertainty of future winters creates concern for ski filmmaking. “This year, Warren Miller has offset the emissions impact from filming Ticket to Ride which is a small step toward creating a sustainable business for the future,” said Max Bervy, Managing Director. “As a stakeholder in winter, Warren Miller Entertainment is committed to using our voice in the winter sports community to help preserve our winters. Continuing our 64-year legacy, we look to make films that excite and inspire skiers and riders worldwide, and we must work with and impassion our audience to pass down the tradition and make positive changes for generations to come.”

Warren Miller films attract a cult-like following and mark the official start of winter for sports enthusiasts everywhere. The shows are an experience—a pre-season party not to be missed so take advantage of this incredible opportunity to witness some of the most extreme winter sports out there!
