The most respected name in winter sports films announces its 64th annual feature film and Utah tour dates.
Salt Lake City get ready to celebrate winter with Warren Miller’s Ticket to Ride. The newest chapter in the legendary film series, Ticket to Ride will take filmgoers on an action-packed journey with the world’s best skiers and snowboarders. Witness athletes at their career-best, and discover the path that put them at the top of the steepest peaks in the 64th annual ski and snowboard film, Warren Miller’s Ticket to Ride.
Experience the immense energy of the world’s most sought-after destinations, and discover the “epicenter of big lines” in Alaska, Montana’s Big Sky Country and the exotic, winter playgrounds of Kazakhstan, Iceland and Greenland. The trams and trains in Switzerland will climb to Mt. Eiger as the fishing boats in Norway will carry you to the islands of Alesund. Once again, winter begins with Warren Miller and it’s time to get your Ticket to Ride.

Park & pipe veteran, Gretchen Bleiler throws down in Aspen proving “girls can look like girls and still rip.” An all-female cast of Jess McMillan, Julia Mancuso and Sierra Quitiquit explore the expansive terrain that is Iceland’s Troll Peninsula, and a snowboard segment in Valdez brings two legends, Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill, together for a rowdy, big mountain adventure.
Producing the annual feature film is always an exciting experience, but the uncertainty of future winters creates concern for ski filmmaking. “This year, Warren Miller has offset the emissions impact from filming Ticket to Ride, which is a small step toward creating a sustainable business for the future,” said Max Bervy, Managing Director. “As a stakeholder in winter, Warren Miller Entertainment is committed to using our voice in the winter sports community to help preserve our winters. Continuing our 64-year legacy, we look to make films that excite and inspire skiers and riders worldwide, and we must work with and impassion our audience to pass down the tradition and make positive changes for generations to come.”
Warren Miller shows are an experience, a pre-season party not to be missed – film attendees have a chance to win ski vacations, heli-trips, prizes and gear, plus meet the athletes and get access to exclusive resort and retail savings from Warren Miller partners.
