It was supposed to be a tough year.  The sponsorship and ad markets are tough.  There was a little controversy.  There were management changes. 

But still like an unsinkable ship, the Warren Miller Tour final numbers came in and again they had a great year.  Approximately 300,000 people attended nearly 500 shows in over 200 cities.  

Dynasty, this year’s movie was shot all over the world.  You had JT Holmes, Jonny Moseley, Errol Kerr and Daron Rahlves in Lake Tahoe.  Chris Benchetler was in Blue River, BC.  Ingrid and Arne Backstrom hit Crystal Mountain, Washington. Max Mancini heli’d in Colorado.  There was Chris Davenport in Norway.  The Crist Brothers tackled Sun Valley and Chris Anthony went to China to find the birthplace of skiing.

This was the 60th straight year that Warren Miller Entertainment has made a ski film.  And again the film was loaded with talent, great locations and lots of sponsors.  This year had Corona, Sprint, Nature Valley and Colorado Tourism as its main sponsors. They of course used their own media properties to promote the film as well. 

Like years past, the film was loaded with great bands including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Incubus, Franz Ferdinand, Cream, Silversun Pickups, Snow Patrol, Oasis, Deep Purple and Snow Patrol. 

Rumors are abound that next years tour is going to have some new surprises.

So another year of helping to kick off the ski season by uniting 300,000 people to ski!
