CWUNewsNewshttp://www.cwu.edu/opr/newsen-usWarren Miller's 67th Film comes to CWU Nov. 10http://www.cwu.edu/opr/node/2830Tue, 23 Dec 2014 09:08:04<p><span style="line-height: 1.4;">(Ellensburg, Wash. – Nov. 10, 2016)&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">This fall, Warren Miller Entertainment introduces its 66th snowsports film, Chasing Shadows. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, Steven Nyman and more as they pursue turns on the mountains of our dreams: Chamonix, Alaska’s Chugach, Utah’s Wasatch and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya.</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.4;">These athletes are masters in their element, and with every cliff drop, perfect line and knee-deep powder turn, they motivate us. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing storms, snow, lines and the freedom they grant us. Take a glimpse into the world of the U.S. freestyle team and the dynamics of snowsports that live on the fringe, like monoskiing, powsurfing and speed riding.</span></p><p><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that keep us searching for more. As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn — we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more. Winter starts with Warren Miller.</span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">&nbsp;</span></p><p>WME<span style="line-height: 1.4;"> will make its annual stop at </span>CWU<span style="line-height: 1.4;"> with its </span><span style="line-height: 1.4;">film, “Chasing Shadows,”&nbsp; Thursday, Nov. 12 for one screening in the Student Union and Recreation Center </span>Theatre<span style="line-height: 1.4;"> at 7 p.m. Advance tickets are $12 for </span>CWU<span style="line-height: 1.4;"> students and Recreation Center members, $16 for general admission and are available online at <a href="http://www.cwu.edu/tickets/single-events" target="_blank">Wildcat Tickets</a>, or in person at </span>CWU<span style="line-height: 1.4;"> Outdoor Pursuits &amp; Rentals (</span>OPR<span style="line-height: 1.4;">) and the Wildcat Shop.
