New Warren Miller ski movie premieres in Logan

LOGAN — Even though mother-nature hasn’t delivered a lot of snow yet to northern Utah, one of the signs of winter is coming this weekend. Friday and Saturday, Warren Miller’s new movie, “Line of Descent,” makes its premiere in Logan, giving skiers and snowboarders a look at some of the sports’ most extreme locations.

Gary Nate, who worked as a camera man for Miller years ago and now organizes the movie showings, said this year’s film features a lot skiing, snowboarding, travel and some comedy.

“We did a lot of it in Montana because they are one of our main sponsors,” said Nate. “Portillo, Chile is one of the most interesting places I’ve ever skied in my life. We go to Switzerland and you should see the footage that we brought back from Jackson Hole.”

This year’s movie is being shown Friday and Saturday nights and Saturday afternoon, in the Mount Logan Middle School auditorium. Tickets are available for each of the shows. They can be purchased at Al’s Sporting Goods.

Nate said this is Miller’s 68th annual film and features more than just skiing and snowboarding.

“It is just a fantastic film. It is entertaining. Even if you just go to see some of the most beautiful places on earth, because we find somewhere weird and we’re there. So the film in itself is really an adventure film.”

Tickets for this year’s movie are $21 and include free lift tickets to Beaver Mountain, Cherry Peak Resort, Snowbasin, Nordic Valley and other discounts, plus a year subscription to Ski Magazine.
