“Fantastic! Captivating! Ski Bum:The Warren Miller story is a compelling, candid, colorful and most entertaining depiction of Warren’s astounding life and career. As a ski journalist and obviously a kid, like all of us passioned skiers, who grew up watching his films, I thought I knew quite a lot about Warren and his work. However, this film truly captures all: the incredible moments, exotic destinations explored, his uncanny knack for storytelling, the countless exhausting film tours year in and year out, the high and lows, and especially the numerous personal and family struggles along the journey. It was an honor and thrill to have Warren as a guest on my Live morning show in Park City some years ago. Seems like yesterday. I can honestly say that Warren has been a personal inspiration planting the seed to travel the world, ski on sunny and snowy days and cover ski racing and Winter Olympic Games. However, one must ski fast, furious and at one’s finest in any foray to possibly have as much fun and follow in Warren’s iconic tracks. He was, undoubtedly, the world’s hardest working ski bum!”
