Warren Miller's Journey
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
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 seasons 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, "Its not about the destination, its about the journey." True, but theres also a lot to be said for the destinations along the trail of Warren Millers Journey.

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.
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.
