  • The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment's 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent, presented by Volkswagen. In this year’s film, WME travels the globe, by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.

    In Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own. Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian brethren, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy’s legacy fills Val-D’Isere hearts with pride.

    From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud—and often downright nervous.

    WME crews chase winter along the Beartooth Highway where a road trip via motorcycles takes athletes Kalen Thorien and Michael “Bird” Shaffer from Montana to Wyoming. And still to come, snowboarders Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill will head to New Zealand to descend Mount Cook.

    For 68 years, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. This year is no different. The family grows, and the traditions grow richer, in Volkswagen presents Warren Miller’s Line of Descent. Bigger, deeper, fresher than ever.
