Warren Miller film headed for Idaho Falls

Warren Miller Entertainment celebrates its 68th ski and snowboard film with a showing of “Line of Descent,” on Oct. 28 at the Colonial Theater. The show starts at 7:30 p.m.

According to a news release, “Line of Descent” celebrates the lineage of legendary athletes through a multi-generational cast of skiing’s icons and fresh faces, including Tommy Moe, Jonny Moseley, JT Holmes, Lexi duPont, Seth Wescott, Kalen Thorien, Marcus Caston, Jeremy Jensen, Griffin Post, and more.

“This season, we explore how skiers are shaped by picking up a pair of skis for the first time,” Warren Miller’s veteran producer Josh Haskins said in the release. “More often than not, it’s family who introduces us to the sport or steers us on the path towards an ongoing passion—be it a ski bum lifestyle, a professional career or simply the desire to pass on the same feeling to the next generation. There is a kinship unlike any other in the ski community, and Warren Miller is the elder, bringing generations of skiers and riders together for 68 years, and this year is no different.”

Tickets are $16 and are available at idahofallsarts.org/warren-millers-line-of-decent.
