Warren Miller's Line Of Descent
68th annual winter sports action film the release of 2018 New Zealand tour dates
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Auckland, New Zealand. – 23rd of February 2018 – This autumn, the annual tradition is back to salute the start of winter. The world’s biggest name in snow sports cinema—Warren Miller Entertainment—celebrates its 68th ski and snowboard film with downhill thrills, global adventure, and a nod to those who taught us to slide on snow.
Snow riders are a family—one big tribe comprising many smaller ones. Familial rites pass down through generations. Skier roots grow deep in high mountain soil. Line of Descent celebrates just that, the lineage of legendary athletes through a multi-generational cast of skiing’s icons and fresh faces, including Tommy Moe, Jonny Moseley, JT Holmes, Lexi duPont, Seth Wescott, Kalen Thorien,Marcus Caston, Jeremy Jensen, Griffin Post, and more.
Ride along on a stunning cinematic journey as we travel near and far, descending some of North America’s deepest lines in Jackson Hole, Montana, Silverton, Squaw Valley | Alpine Meadows, and Steamboat. From splitboard to powsurfer, motorcycle, dogsled, and snowmobile, the athletes employ nearly all possible means to chase winter along the Beartooth Pass, the French Alps, New Zealand, British Columbia, and Norway.
“This season, we explore how skiers are shaped by picking up a pair of skis for the first time,” notes Warren Miller’s veteran producer Josh Haskins. “More often than not, it’s family who introduces us to the sport or steers us on the path toward an ongoing passion—be it a ski-bum lifestyle, a professional career, or simply the desire to pass on the same feeling to the next generation. There is a kinship unlike any other in the ski community, and Warren Miller is the elder, bringing generations of skiers and riders together for 68 years, and this year is no different.”
Since 1949, ski families have cheered the official kick-off of winter with the ski film company that started it all. As the family grows, the traditions grow richer. Warren Miller’s Line of Descent will premiere nationwide in Auckland on May 11th, 2018, at the Berkely Takapuna. Screenings will then sweep across New Zealand, from Christchurch, to Wellington.
Tickets go on sale 1st of March, 2018, and early bird tickets will be available online until the week before each screening. Film attendees will enjoy lift ticket and gear savings from Warren Miller resort, retail, and partnered brands and be entered to win nightly prizes like swag and ski vacations.
