Warren Miller was born on the 15th of October in 1924 and is still alive today. He made his first ski movie 65 years ago, it was called Deep and Light. His most recent one: No Turning Back features downhill racing, speed skiing, helicopter skiing, and big mountain skiing. You might recognize some of the athletes featured in the movie such as Ted Ligety, Julia Mancuso, and Mikaela Shiffrin.

These athletes went to Greece to ski Mount Olympus which is the ancient peak of Greek mythology, Northern Japan where they get LOTS of snow, Chamonix, France which is a famous ski town, the Swiss Alps where they did speed skiing with parachutes, Lofoten, Norway, small ski towns in Montana and Alaska, and finally Beaver Creek in Colorado which will be the home of the Skiing World Cup this year.

This movie made me feel very excited to ski!! You got to see all kinds of skiing and snowboarding along with many amazing locations. I recommend you see this if you ski or snowboard or, like to watch skiing and snowboarding. I also recommend it if you want to see different mountains and ski towns. It was cool that they showed clips from past movies. You got to see how much skiing has evolved. For example, people used to not wear helmets! The event was fun because you could win prizes such as ski tickets at intermission and you could enter into a grand drawing for a world ski tour. A couple of the athletes in the movie even came out on stage and the audience cheered like crazy!
