I think what keeps it going is the event itself, which in a lot of places it's kind of like a pre-season party for people to get stoked.
it's still a miller production.. his son took over.
i see nothing wrong with tradition in the ski industry, these guys started it all for everyone. with advances in technology and now its sooo easy to make movies everyone and there brother is doing it. including me :P
WM still has a big budget and makes a solid production every yr and stokes all the old timey skier folk.. they know nothing of TGR, standard, absynthe and the likes.. all the old folks know is WM. thank WM

If his son took it over I seriously doubt he'd be suing his dad. That's right Warren Miller productions has filed an on going lawsuit against Warren Miller. They are now some no name company who couldn't give a fuck about snowboarding and skiing. They just care about making a $. Back when Warren Miller ran the show it was kewl. Now a days they can just suck it.

i would like to hold my self accountable for not checking my facts before shamelessly posting info that was not true. the last i had heard of, if that were still the case then my info would have been facts.. but i apologize. i was wrong

I WAS WRONG <- a man fessing up

Facts are: Miller continued to head the company both creatively and executively until the late 1980s when he sold the company to his son, Kurt Miller. Kurt later sold the company to Time, Inc., who then sold it to Bonnier Corporation in 2007. The company still produces a new film every year, however Miller himself has not been actively involved since 2004.


please forgive my lack of factual information spreading.

thank you killclimbz for inspiring an investigation into the "who owns warren miller" phenomenon.

How does that free lift ticket thing work? I don't see how they could make much money doing that...I suspect one of these "premieres" costs significantly more than a typical cinema movie ticket.

Ticket to the one in my town was $21. Most of the ticket vouchers are 2 for one deals. The free tickets are the resorts way of advertising(simple way to put it).

Only reason why I went is that it is the only thing in my area for winter movie premier. Most of the people who went to this in my area are there more for the event then for the movie.

Huh, I've never gotten free lift tickets at either of the showings I've been to here. They raffled like 3 tickets, but that's like 3 tickets in a room full of 500 people... I WANT MY FREE TICKET!

Oh wait, I have a Season Pass

Would have been nice though to try out some of the other mountains around here for free : /

I believe it depends on what mountain is sponsoring the movie. I just got a Warren Miller flier in the mail because I am on the mailing list. It came with a coupon for a discount at a local ski and snowboard shop. Lift tickets to Killington, Smugglers Notch and I believe Sugarbush which are a few local mountains here in Vermont.

Haha, screw WM. My weekend involved evading the cops, eating a ton of pizza, catching up with an old friend, a super intense conversation on the meaning of life, and a couple of people trying to break into my house with longboards. Way more intense, and I saved $26. Plus I still watched a bunch of my old snowboarding movies

I got that flier too. It advertised for tickets to Pico, Killington, and Windham though...
But the EMS coupon sounded nice.

Warren Miller films used to be great...but nowadays they suck because Warren is almost not at all involved.
