When it comes to ski gear, the Warren Miller athletes know what’s hot, and what’s not. And we mean that literally. Film shoots mean long hours of standing around in the freezing cold and whipping winds. Then, on a moment’s notice, athletes are expected to dive headfirst down the fall line and rip the best turns of their lives—whether or not conditions are favorable. It’s a big ask, and athletes depend on their gear to help them make the cut and into the final film. So when they endorse a piece of ski gear, it’s not just because they have to pay lip service to their sponsors—it’s because they genuinely trust the equipment listed here to get the job done.
