Official Trailer: Volkswagen presents Warren Miller Entertainments’s Line of Descent


For almost seven decades, families have made it a tradition to celebrate the kickoff to winter by getting stoked watching the annual Warren Miller film. Families have grown, new generations have taken to the slopes, and gear has definitely improved, but the tradition continues this season with Volkswagen presents Warren Miller Entertainment’s Line of Descent.

Follow athletes Tommy Moe, Kalen Thorien, Collin Collins, Lexi duPont, Marcus Caston, Seth Wescott and others as they travel the globe by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind skiers and riders into one big tribe. Filmed in British Columbia, France, Montana, Colorado, California, Norway, and New Zealand, the next generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes. (How about speed-riding in Montana’s rugged mountains or staying upright on a bindingless snowboard deep in the British Colombia backcountry?)

Find a big-screen premiere near you here (tickets go on sale September 12). There’s more than stoke for motivation: Film attendees will receive lift-ticket and gear discounts, plus they’ll be entered to win nightly prizes like swag and ski vacations.
