Winter is coming, and it’s time for powder lovers across the Wasatch to take that first step to prepare for the season.
It’s time for Warren Miller’s latest film “…Like There’s No Tomorrow” — for his 62nd annual U.S. tour. Warren Miller films have become a tradition for many winter sport enthusiasts and have garnered a niche following for their shows. Fans look forward to athletes such as Chris Davenport, Julia Mancuso, Daron Rahlves, Colby West and Seth Wescott to hit the slopes across the globe.
“… Like There’s No Tomorrow” is the latest project to come from Warren Miller Entertainment. The company bears the name of its founder, who at 87 is not involved in production anymore. Miller is considered to be the godfather of extreme sports films, as his videos pioneered extreme athletes in their environment with stunning cinematography.
This film will take the viewer to India, Norway, Chile, Canada and New Zealand, as well as mountains in Alaska, Utah, California and New Hampshire. Miller’s films also are known for their innovative soundtracks, and “… Like There’s No Tomorrow” continues in that tradition. This year’s track features Dean Martin, Bill Withers, Radiohead, Explosions in the Sky, Foo Fighters and Santana.
The U.S. Tour begins Friday in Salt Lake City in Abravanel Hall at 8 p.m. The tour continues through the Midwest, going to major cities such as Chicago, Milwaukee, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Denver and Boston. It will run until Dec. 10.
The film highlights Brant Moles, a former big-mountain skiing world champion, as he leads local skiers Carlo Travarelli, Rachael Burks, Leo Ahrens, Sam Cohen, Ben Wheeler and Caroline Gleich across the terrain of Big and Little Cottonwood canyons.
