There’s no place in the world quite like Alaska, especially for skiers who love big mountains. When Warren Miller Entertainment athletes Jess McMillan and Forrest Jillson ventured deep into Denali National Park and the mountains surrounding the Tordrillo Mountain Lodge last season, it felt like they were the only skiers in the entire state.

The two Jackson Hole athletes took advantage of the situation by putting down as many beautiful tracks as possible in Denali National Park and the Tordrillo Mountains. The only way to really appreciate the size of these landscapes and lines is by watching Warren Miller Entertainment’s 69th feature film Face of Winter, presented by Volkswagen, on the big screen.
