FILM: SKI SHOTS

Warren Miller's ski and snowboarding films are, to say the least, iconic. They're action-packed and an absolutely thrilling watch for any snow sports enthusiast. Daymaker completely rewrites the rules of adaptive backcountry riding and showcases the neck-deep powder in British Columbia's Monashee mountain range. The 73rd annual film features winter athletes like Karl Fostvedt, Michelle Parker, Katie Burrell and even some of Europe's most legendary mountain guides as they traverse rugged terrain and highlight some of the world's most extreme runs.
