I just went and saw it on Saturday night in NYC with one of my skier buddies. It's not a bad movie if you don't mind it being pretty much all skiers this year. There is one little section that they have which is from Standard Films footage of this year so if you're looking for shredding this isn't the movie. That said some of the adventures they go on and big mountain shots they have are pretty sick and definitely better than last years.
Oh and Warren Miller has nothing to do with it anymore...he sold the company a couple of year ago and has been totally phased out. Now Johnny Mosely is doing the narration which isn't bad but it's not the same without Warren's voice even making a brief cameo like he did up to Off The Grid a couple of years ago. His son was doing the production and running the company since like the mid 90's.
Warren Miller - Wintervention, at The Stanley Theater Utica, NY .... tomorrow 11/23!
20 bux gets you some live music, beer available, the movie showing w/ seating and $200 in New York ski/snowboard ticket coupons ... a gore 2 for 1 pass, a mccauley pass + some savings for snow ridge, woods valley, toggenburg & labrador ... a free GE ski club membership ($20) and some more savings ... stop on down, its right off the thruway exit
Pretty much agree with everyone's rant against the the once great WM films, which they've now turned into crap. It's the same formulaic thing every year with none of the insider stuff WM worked so hard to seek out.
the WM video i saw was wack, it will be my 1st and last, but the coupons alone were worth going
See, they have to use promotions to get anyone to come anymore. I wish some better snowboard movies would take WM place in the spotlight, because WM and some crappy telemarker films are the only thing that get shown here.
