The Show Must Go On - Ski Mag

This fall, Warren Miller Entertainment debuts its 69th annual ski film, continuing a tradition that the late godfather of action-sports films started decades ago. Face of Winter promises to deliver all that WME ski flicks have become known for: jaw-dropping scenery, adrenaline-pumping ski action, and above all, an intimate look at the people and places that make skiing so rad.

In the gallery below, this year’s WME athletes and crew pay tribute to Warren, the original face of winter, and the entertainment legacy he leaves behind. Since Warren would be the first to admit that he may have borrowed one (or many) of his famous, quirky one-liners, we thought it only right to borrow Warren’s words in turn. After all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
