Warren Miller is an American Film Maker of ski and snowboard movies. He is the founder of Warren Miller Entertainment, who have produced over 55 snow sports movies. Warren himself was no longer involved in the production after 2004, however, the company still releases a new movie every year. HE passed away on Jan 2018. He has an autobiography which sold out after the printing batch.
A voiceover of Miller in the movie says, “We snow riders are the most fortunate people on this planet earth. As we get to spend an endless winter on the side of a mountain somewhere. On whatever we enjoy the most. Sliding on something that never changes, yet is never the same. Something as simple as a blanket of snow.”
Scenes in the movie are from all over the world including; Canada, Iceland, Chile, Switzerland, New Zealand, USA, and France.

Skimag.com says, “Besides showcasing spectacular scenery and great skiing, this segment is perhaps the purest ode to Warren’s original work. It focuses on telling a story about the mountains and the skiers who are so drawn to their magic, they’ll invent ways to access them, slide around on them, and just be surrounded by them. “
