500 films, 1,200 columns and 11 books….Warren Miller body of work is staggering. Here is a little tribute edit published on the Warren Miller Entertainment Youtube page:
“Warren Miller changed countless lives with his undeniable passion for showing people that there is another way to live their life.
Warren A. Miller, who rose up from a Depression-era childhood to become the world’s foremost ski filmmaker and a beloved spokesperson for the sport, passed away January 24, 2018, at his home on Orcas Island, WA. He was 93 years old.
Warren’s talents cut a wide swath beyond ski filmmaking. He produced more than 500 films in all, primarily covering outdoor pursuits, including surfing, sailing, and other water sports. As an artist, cartoonist and author, he wrote some 1,200 columns and 11 books.”
The Warren Miller Entertainment family – and the snowsports world at large – has lost one of its original patriarchs at the age of 93. Warren's humor and adventure-seeking spirit forged the legacy of a genre and a passion for freedom. The insurmountable loss of the pioneer of the Warren Miller brand, father of ski filmmaking, and one of skiing’s greatest ambassadors is a loss to the snowsports community and beyond. It’s with heavy hearts that we will continue to celebrate the life of Warren Miller each fall. His legacy will live on. PC: Sun Valley
