An update on last month’s ski accident that broke ski filmmaking legend Warren Miller’s back—he’s doing well and improving nicely. Many of you have been asking us how it happened. We’ll let him explain, from his blog:

“I was traveling at high speeds — in excess of three miles an hour — but not yet up to four when in the middle of my second turn of the day, a wide snowplow I might add, when my right ski pre-released. I stepped out of the ski and my body was suddenly horizontal, my ski was stuck on edge, and I landed on my back on the edge of it.”

He even manages to make the narrative of his own back-breaking humorous. Get better soon Warren, we’ve heard enough bad news lately…
