It may be mid-September, but it still feels like the dog days of summer around some parts of the country—including the parts where SKI’s Boulder offices are located. Which is why we’re tickled to share that our friends down the hall at Warren Miller Entertainment brought a shiver to our cubicles by dropping the trailer for the film company’s 73rd feature film, “Daymaker.”
The full-length flick travels the globe once again, snorkeling through neck-deep fluff in B.C.’s Monashee Mountains with adaptive backcountry riders Pete McAfee and Dominic Davila, chasing powder of mythic proportions in Greece’s Olympus Mountains with John Falkiner (a WME alum from the ’70s and ’80s), and grass skiing down the summery slopes of Wengen, Switzerland with Connery Lundin, biding time until the flakes fly.
The film welcomes back familiar faces including Michelle Parker, McKenna Peterson, Simon Hillis, and Madison Rose Ostergren, and welcomes new athletes such as Freeride World Tour phenom Hedwig Wessel and comedienne Katie Burrell surfing pow with B.C.’s Eagle Pass Heli Skiing, plus Ketchum freeskier “Crazy” Karl Fostvedt showing the youth of Sun Valley how it’s done. New this year: WME VIPs Marcus Caston and Jonny Moseley ski-nap audience-nominated Warren Miller superfan Tyler Blocker, intercepting him on his way to the lifts at Snowbasin.
We won’t give away what happens next, but you can snag discounted tickets to the film when it swings by your hometown on tour this fall. “Daymaker” debuts on Oct. 26, then heads out on its North American jaunt.
