You don’T Even want to be stuck in line for popcorn and miss these scenes in Your 69th Warren Miller ski and snowboard Movie, “Face of Winter,” now touring Colorado:
Iceland (segment No. 5): Summer heli-skiing close to the Arctic Circle, located out of a household farm dating back 1,200 years and featuring 4,000-foot descents looming across the Arctic Ocean. There is some stunning sunset skiing, in which it never gets dark in the summer and temperatures are still mild.
Denali National Park (segment 6): A set of ski mountaineers travel cross-country on a glacier to get to the foot of massive peaks near Alaska’s Mount Denali, then climb to make some twists on candy, extreme descents. “Why ski traveling? ” states one of the skiers in the segment, Jess McMillan of Jackson, Wyo. “Why do people get it? Why do they love it? For me personally, the neat portion of ski touring is dropping yourself in the mountains. You truly feel like an explorer, and also I believe there is part of the human spirit that needs and wants that. ”

Chile (segment 7): Portillo is really where U.S. Ski Team downhillers train in the fall. It’s one of the most spectacular settings imaginable to get a ski region, located by the coast of an aquamarine alpine lake surrounded by soaring Andes peaks. The segment includes shots from the slopes of the ski region and heli-skiing on nearby mountains. The pool is really cool, too. “Portillo is similar to the coolest mature summer camp ,” states that a snowboarder in the segment, Breckenridge’s Brennan Metzler.
France (segment 8): Chamonix, at the foot of Mont Blanc (the maximum peak in the Alps), is in which alpine mountaineering was invented in the 18th century and it remains a place where extreme athletes do extreme things. This segment reveals three skiers making ridiculous descents about the Mont Blanc massif using skis, rappels and possibly even wings. In addition to the jagged mountain scenery is some of the very finest in Europe.
Washington (segment 4): Perhaps the most interesting scene is set in Mount Baker, a volcanic peak in the northern Cascades of Washington state. It’therefore the birthplace of the Legendary Banked Slalom, the oldest snowboarding race in the world dating back to 1985. Imagine riders on a course which resembles a toboggan run, including a corkscrew segment that takes them below the course by means of a tunnel barely four feet broad. Guaranteed to make you smile, even when you’re a skier.
