As sure as the leaves turn color in autumn, Warren Miller fans welcome his annual snowsports extravaganza on film. Warren Miller films attract a cult-like following and mark the official start of 
winter for sport enthusiasts.This year Ticket to Ride , his 64th annual feature kicked off the 
national tour of over 60 venues, with an October 11 show in Salt Lake City.

These days, when many snowboard film premieres happen online instead of in theatres and clubs 
as in the past, a live community event filled with stoked snowriders is a reason to get out and celebrate! Warren Miller shows are an experience, a pre-season party not to be missed – film attendees have a chance to win ski vacations, heli-trips, prizes and gear, plus meet the athletes and get access to exclusive resort and retail savings from Warren Miller partners.

Ticket to Ride will take filmgoers on an action-packed journey with the world’s best skiers and snowboarders. Witness athletes at their career-best, and discover the path that put them at the 
top of 
the steepest peaks.

Experience the immense energy of the world’s most sought-after destinations, and discover the “epicenter of big lines” in Alaska, Montana’s Big Sky Country and the exotic, winter playgrounds of Kazakhstan, Iceland and Greenland. The trams and trains in Switzerland will climb to  
Mt. Eiger as the fishing boats in Norway will carry you to the islands of Alesund.

World-class action sport athletes, including World Cup champions and Olympians, Seth Wescott, Ted Ligety and Julia Mancuso, plus legendary ski mountaineers like Chris Davenport, and freeskiers Colby West and Sean Pettit show their stuff.
