Warren Miller's Face of Winter in Switzerland - Ski Mag

The Making Of "Face of Winter" | Switzerland

Publish date:

The Swiss Alps are a skier's dream. There are resorts that rival the largest in North America for size and amenities, single-chairs in the middle of nowhere, and better cheese than anywhere else on the planet. With a ski racing culture that rivals Austria and plentiful powder that commonly goes neglected by the piste-loving European visitors, there's no reason not to watch the world's best racers in the morning and find untracked lines in the afternoon.

For Face of Winter, the 69th feature film from Warren Miller Entertainment presented by Volkswagen, professional skiers Marcus Caston and Johan Jonsson experienced all of the above, including chest-deep powder conditions in Engelberg, World Cup Racing at Crans-Montana, and–Caston's favorite part–endless tastings of the best cheese in the world. 

We can't wait for the full film to be released later this year, make sure you head to a premiere anywhere in the USA too.
