How did Warren Miller the man influence your skiing/riding career?
I can still vividly remember going to the original Isis Theater in Aspen every October when I was a kid and watching that year’s Warren Miller film. Hearing Warren’s narration got everyone totally amped for the coming ski season, and people would always leave the theater hooting and hollering because they were so psyched for the coming winter.
