Warren Miller Entertainment’s 66th annual winter sports film 'Chasing Shadows' is a celebration of why we commit ourselves every winter to a passion that’s guaranteed to melt away every spring. Warren Miller once said, “A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom,” and this year, we’re chasing storms, snow, lines that live on the world’s highest peaks and the freedom that they grant us.
Follow the world’s biggest names in skiing and snowboarding on a breathtaking cinematic journey as they push toward the edge, where the mountain’s shadow cast below leads the way. Watch JT Holmes, Seth Wescott, Caroline Gleich, Steven Nyman, Marcus Caston and more as they pursue turns on the mountains of our dreams: Chamonix, Alaska’s Chugach, the Chilean Andes, Utah’s Wasatch and the mightiest range of them all: the Himalaya.
Explore what it means to be inspired, and what it is about exotic locations and snow-covered summits that motivate us to keep searching and chasing after more. As skiers and snowboarders we chase a feeling, a memory, a storm, a turn — we’ve been chasing it our whole lives and we’ll keep chasing it a lifetime more.
Three brothers set out on a very special trip together. Motivated by the classic surfer’s relentless quest for the perfect wave, they travel to the remote Norwegian island of Bjørnøya. Lugging a surfboard, snowboard, paraglider and various other equipment they transform the challenging nature of Bjørnøya into their own playground. The brothers find their ice-cold waves and precipitous slopes, and we get the chance to join in on the excitement of shredding arctic snow and cruising the ice cold waves.

In winter 2014, Leon McCarron, Tom Allen and Jose Argento travelled along the entire length of the Rio Santa Cruz. They took with them five horses, carrying all their food and relying on the river for water. Their journey was inspired by the story of the first European exploration of the river, undertaken by Captain FitzRoy in 1834. FitzRoy had been charged with charting the coastline of South America, and his crew included a very young and impressionable Charles Darwin who fancied himself as a bit of a geologist and amateur explorer. Both FitzRoy and Darwin left detailed writings of their journey along the river which, sadly, ultimately ended in a failure to find the source (though they came heartbreakingly close.)
unReal is for those of us who escape. A film that celebrates breaking free from the confines of reality and venturing into a boundless world. This place isn’t remote or hard to find, and yet many never see it. Here, glacial walls transform into mountain bike trails, rain and snow aren't the only elements to fall from the sky and thousand pound mammals become riding partners. Breathtaking visuals conjure feelings of awe and pure joy; feelings that only those of us who venture outside can truly understand. This film is dedicated to you — the dreamers, the rule-breakers, the ones who never grow up, the ones who know the secret — the ones who know the way into the unReal world.
"At 82, Dylis holds the world record for being the oldest female skydiver in the world.
Full of confidence and liberated by her passion Dylis talks us through her mindset before each dive. She confides that her only worry when it comes to skydiving is refusing to get out of the car at the drop zone because she knows that if she backed out of a dive she would regret it. In her opinion “the ecstasy is far more than the fear”.
Dylis describes skydiving as “better than having sex”. Along with the enjoyment, it has given Dylis the courage she needed to start her own charity and share the uplifting energy with others.
“I won’t stop until I know it’s not safe, so for now I will continue”. This is her story. "
