On Friday, we grabbed a quick flight from Denver to Salt Lake City to catch the world premiere of Flow State, Warren Miller Entertainment’s 63rd film. It was the kind of premiere filmmakers dream about: Fans packed the 3,000-seat theater and more than 20 athletes were in attendance. When World Cup champ Daron Rahlves got the call asking if he was available to head to Alaska to film a segment with Tommy Moe and Marco Sullivan, he was ecstatic. “I was like, uhhh, yeah. Sign me up,” he says.
