Get your adrenaline pumping with Warren Miller’s Face of Winter at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre

The feature film celebrates Warren Miller, the man who became known as the face of winter

Winter is just around the corner, and Warren Miller Entertainment is ready to kick off the season with its 69th installment ski and snowboarding film, Face of Winter, coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on November 17.

The late Warren Miller built his legacy capturing the essence of winter magic, and today that legacy launches the start of the ski and snowboard season every year. In the 69th feature film, celebrate the man who became known as the face of winter throughout the industry, and the places and people he influenced along the way, in the first film since his passing.

This year, new and veteran athletes come together to pay tribute to the man who started it all, including Jonny Moseley, Marcus Caston, Seth Wescott, Forrest Jillson, Kaylin Richardson, Dash Longe, Anna Segal, Michael “Bird” Shaffer, and featured athletes of the U.S. cross country ski team, including gold medalist, Jessie Diggins. Watch as they visit some of Warren’s favorite places from Engleberg to Chamonix, British Columbia to Alaska, Chile, Iceland, New Zealand and more.

It’s been 69 years since Warren Miller made his first full-length feature film, and he’s been on a hot streak ever since.

A pioneer of the ski film industry, Warren Miller Entertainment has produced 67 films — one each year — and travelled the globe with their crew to capture the world’s winter beauty. Miller got his start in the filmmaking industry in 1949 while working as a ski instructor in Idaho. After filming himself and fellow skiers to improve their techniques, Miller decided to make a career out of his hobby. It was then that he founded Warren Miller Entertainment and began producing his own films.

“The film is for anyone whose life (whether they realize it or not) was impacted by Warren Miller,” says Warren Miller Entertainment 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.”

Whether you’re ready to embark on a snowy voyage and ski the world’s best mountain ranges or not, this film will leave you with the rush of adrenaline that comes with winter sports. An appreciation for the beauty that winter brings, and, most of all, a desire to get out and explore.

Getting out and exploring will be even easier with the avalanche of door prizes audience members will have a chance to win just by attending! From adventure gear and equipment from local businesses, to lift passes, the adventure doesn’t have to stop when the film does.

Warren Miller’s Face of Winter is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on November 17, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at ChilliwackCulturalCentre.ca, or by calling 604-391-SHOW (7469).
