“Flow State” the latest offering from Warren Miller Entertainment, hits the Colorado market this month with film screenings in Aspen, Colorado Springs, Denver, Boulder, Lone Tree, Breckenridge, Steamboat, and Beaver Creek for specific dates and times skinet.com/warrenmiller. This year’s film includes scenes devoted to Alaska’s Chugach Powder Guides, Niseko in Japan, the San Juans of Colorado and Murran, Switzerland. It has a fantastic segment devoted to the famed 10th Mountain Division which the Colorado Ski Museum helped to facilitate. The 10th Mountain Division is the under pinning of Colorado’s modern ski resorts so it is fantastic that Warren Miller Entertainment featured the 10th to introduce their accomplishments and advancements made in skiing to a boarder younger audience.
Flow State’s 10th Mtn segment led to a collaboration between the Colorado Ski Museum and Warren Miller Entertainment to produce a 45-minute documentary Climb to Glory; Legacy of the 10th Mountain Ski Troopers. It’s a then and now documentary about the 10th Mountain Division using WME’s flair for music, extreme skiing and humor to tell the story of how the Ski Troopers transformed the U.S. ski industry when they returned from war. A red carpet premiere of this new documentary is scheduled for Thursday January 17th at the Oriental Theater in Denver. For ticket information, call the Museum 970.476.1876.
There’s another way to learn about the history of skiing. Rocky Mountain PBS, in partnership with the Colorado Ski Museum, has produced a six-part series that will be aired on Thursday evenings throughout November and December. Rocky Mountain Legacy: A History of Colorado Skiing (November 1), Ski Sentinels: Story of the National Ski Patrol (November 15), Signatures (November 22), In the Shadow of Genghis Kahn (December 13), Legends of American Skiing (December 20) and Stein Eriksen: Ski Legend (December 27). We know you will enjoy these terrific historical and contemporary programs while getting excited about the upcoming ski season.
