Product Description

Wherever snow falls, a Warren Miller camera is there to catch it, bringing the magic of snowriding into your home!

In fifty-four years of capturing the worldwide flavor of alpine skiing and kindred adventure sports, the Warren Miller crew has traveled to every corner of the globe. This season’s Journey offers another prismatic view of the kaleidoscope of winter sports, taking the viewer on a voyage inside the soul of skiing. Ports of call include the treeless snowfields of Portillo, Chile; the savage couloirs of Chamonix, France; the sheer descents of the Chugach Range in Alaska; and the powder paradise of Bella Coola, British Columbia. A backwater romp through the wilds of Morocco provides a pungent whiff of the exotic, while a visit to a very unfrozen lake in Helena, Montana, is no less strange. As Doug Coombs remarks to his friends in a Chamonix bar after a long day of indulging diverse challenges, "It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey." True, but there’s also a lot to be said for the destinations along the trail of Warren Miller’s Journey.

Octogenarian Warren Miller has been making extreme snow sports documentaries so long he offers, as a gift, footage in the awe-inspiring Journey of Marilyn Monroe taking a tumble--albeit gorgeously--on a ski slope. The rest of Journey is Miller's usual dazzling display of downhill poetry and madness, including high-altitude stops in breathtaking Portillo, Chile and Heavenly, California. An amazing chapter about "ski mountaineering" in Chamonix, France, could cause a viewer to skip a heartbeat while also admiring athletes who scale narrow rock formations at the peaks of a violently rugged range--only then to ski 4,000 impossibly steep feet. A brief report about back country snowboarding gives way to a stay in the lovely Cordova hills of Alaska and a misadventure getting lost in Valbruna, Italy. Not just for snow nuts, Journey, driven by Miller's ability to blend beauty and shock in remarkable, remote places, is a treat for everyone. --Tom Keogh

This is one of the finer ski movies that I've seen (and I've seen quite a few). The footage is really awesome, with plenty of close shots, very skillfully and professionally done. FIVE STARS for that.

Warren Miller's commentary throughout the film is actually interesting and informative -- for example, the Aspen Ski Patrol segment. The annoying part is that his voice is often overpowered by the lame music and you have to try hard to understand what he's saying. And, yes, the soundtrack itself isn't that great.

The athlete profiles in the special features are really nicely done. Nothing to do with the brainless "performances" in movies like Soul Purpose, which seem to promote stupidity and ignorant behavior.

Overall, it's worth buying. Good production.

Hello, this is a great ski vid. Warren takes you all over the world, from Alaska to Morrocco. Great Skiing and even some ok Boarding. Awesome scenary. And of course, legendary story line and narration. Still doesn't beat Blizzard of Ah's though.

And as good as the ski and snowboard coverage is, the part at the end with Loic Jean Albert doing 100+ mph down the face of the mountain in a wingsuit blew my mind. Link to YouTube below...you have to see this to believe it. It's one thing to see folks using wingsuits while skydiving, but the way Albert does it skimming the surface of the mountain gives it a perspective that is the closest thing to human flight I've ever seen:

Wow.

It's strange to be watching winter sports videos in the dead of summer. I was humbled by what I saw in Warren Miller's Storm so I sought out a few others, starting with Warren Miller's Journey.

Like most Warren Miller productions, the tricks and scenery will blow you away if you have ever tried to ski or snowboard. It is amazing they are even able to capture shots like these.

Clearly Warren is a legend who has no trouble getting people to be a part of his movies. The locations and types of shoots are varied and cover several continents. There is some mind-bending footage here, but that comes as no surprise.

One thing applies to all these tricks, and it bears repeating: don't try any of this. There is no instruction here. This is extreme sports entertainment set to a backdrop of music and interweaving stories and interviews. That's all.

Each Warren Miller movie I watch leaves me with more respect for the risks of being on the mountain.

The soundtrack is not as good as in Storm, but it's still done well for the scenes.

I plan on buying all the other Warren Miller stuff I haven't seen yet. I hope you will give this a look.

Enjoy!

Love this DVD. Had to have to add to Warren Miller collection. Watch this all winter and summer long. Can't get enough of Warren Miller. This one is mostly skiing.

This is a must see for any snowboarder or skier to see. We watch his films on the way to our ski destination to get us in the mood, and at home to live vicarously through the those on the film.
