SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Oct. 16, 2015)—A host of U.S. Ski Team and U.S. Snowboarding stars will grace the silver screen in Warren Miller Entertainment’s Chasing Shadows this year, its 66th edition of its annual winter sports film. This installment of the iconic winter sports series celebrates why skiers and snowboarders commit themselves every winter to a passion that’s guaranteed to melt away every spring.

Warren Miller Entertainment’s film follows the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding on a breathtaking cinematic journey. This year, that includes the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team at the Visa Freestyle International World Cup at Deer Valley—the first time a World Cup moguls event has been featured in a Warren Miller film.

“These films represent winter and represent all aspects of our sport of skiing—from people first learning to the people that made it their life,” commented Hannah Kearney (Norwich, VT), who appears in the film with the U.S. Freestyle Ski Team. “To be included is huge. I can’t wait to see the film along with the world and I’m really excited I get to be apart of it.”

Athletes tour the French Alps, Alaska’s Chugach, the Chilean Andes, Utah’s Wasatch and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya in this year’s movie. Watch for U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Steven Nyman (Sundance, UT) in a segment skiing with his brothers at Utah’s Sundance Resort, and U.S. Snowboarding’s Seth Wescott (Sugarloaf, ME) riding in Nepal.

“This year’s film will inspire viewers to search out their dreams and find freedom,” said Warren Miller’s Director of Cinematography Chris Patterson, who has been making films with Warren Miller for 24 years. “Our athletes show us that anything is possible if your passions and desires are in the right direction.”

The annual Warren Miller Film Tour for Chasing Shadows will kick off in Salt Lake City, UT, on October 16, and will hit cities in the Rockies, Midwest, California, Pacific Northwest, East Coast and Southwest on a national tour October – December 2015.
