Warren Miller’s Chasing Shadows
Melbourne, Victoria – February, 2016 – This Autumn, Warren Miller Entertainment releases Chasing Shadows, the 66th edition of its annual Winter sports films. This year’s installment of the iconic film series celebrates why skiers and snowboarders commit themselves every Winter to a passion that’s guaranteed to melt away every Spring. As always, Warren Miller’s annual film tradition marks the beginning of the colder weather, Winter exploration and premier cinematography that reignites the excitement for Winter sports. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and in this year’s film, Chasing Shadows, skiers and snowboarders find that very freedom as they chase storms, snow and lines on the world’s highest peaks.
Follow the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding on a breathtaking cinematic journey. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, Steven Nyman, Marcus Caston, Ingrid Backstrom and more as they pursue turns on the mountains of our dreams – the French Alps, Alaska’s Chugach, Utah’s Wasatch, the Chilean Andes and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalayas.
“This year’s film will inspire viewers to search out their dreams and find freedom,” says Director of Cinematography Chris Patterson, who has been making films with Warren Miller for 24 years. “Our athletes show us that anything is possible if your passions and desires are in the right direction.”
Take a glimpse into the world of the U.S. freestyle team and the snow sports that live on the fringe, like mono skiing, pow surfing and speed riding. Then explore what it is about culturally rich locations and snow-covered summits that motivate passionate skiers and snowboarders to keep searching and chasing after a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn; each Winter and for a lifetime more.
The annual Warren Miller Film Tour for Chasing Shadows will kick off in Melbourne, Victoria on May 18, 2016 and will hit major cities and regional centres on a national tour from May through to June, 2016.
Attending a Warren Miller film is a tradition that marks the start to every Winter season.

Additionally, moviegoers have a chance to win ski holidays, ski and snowboard gear and a host of other swag. Winter Starts with Warren Miller, and this year, we're Chasign Shadows.
