Just beyond the United States' northern border in Rossland, B.C., a phenomenal little place called RED Mountain sits just off Canada's famed Powder Highway. The quaint ski resort is known for deep powder, perfectly spaced pine trees, and a humble population of residents who know they've got it pretty good. 

For Warren Miller Entertainment's 69th film, Face of Winter, an athlete squad consisting of American Kaylin Richardson, Norwegian Dennis Risvoll, and British Columbian local Simon Hillis invaded the slopes of RED for the camera. Before the mountain opened each day, the RED Mountain ski patrol was usually hard at work getting the slopes ready for the team, which is an experience to watch by itself. 

We're super excited to see the full film, Face of Winter presented by Volkswagen, this fall. Join us at a premiere near you!
