The lineage of mountain lifestyle continues in Warren Miller Entertainment's (WME) 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent, presented by Volkswagen. In this year's film, WME travels the globe by land, air, and sea, exploring the ties that bind ski culture.

As tradition has it, the tour kicks off October 13th in Salt Lake City. Chaos Headwear with CTR-Chaos Thermal Regulation, a leader in extreme winter headwear protection, is proud to announce it is once again the official headwear sponsor the most esteemed name in winter sports films, Warren Miller, for its 68th annual feature film U.S. tour. 

Look for chances to grab one of the Warren Miller-Chaos custom hats throughout the tour, which travels to 33 states and countless venues in the US and Canada, the home of the Choas Headquarters. Register to win prizes and big raffle swag at the Paramount Theater venue in Denver, November 16th, 17th and 18th, 2017.

"Here at Chaos the Warren Miller tour is our premier event for 2017-2018," said U.S. Director of Sales Gary Supple. "It's been 68 years since Warren Miller first captured the beauty and adventure of skiing on film, and his work continues to astonish and inspire. We know the energy at the event will be incredible."

This year's filming in Squaw Valley and Jackson Hole, WME visits skiing icons who have made the mountains their home and raised mini Moes and Moseleys of their own. Traveling to Norway, a Canadian ski patroller enjoys the company of his Norwegian clan, and in the French Alps, native son Jean-Claude Killy's legacy fills Val-D'Isere hearts with pride.

OUR SPONSORS

From BC to France, Glacier Country to Steamboat, new generations of skiers and riders are pushing their sport to new extremes, making their parents proud-and often downright nervous.

WME crews chase winter along the Beartooth Highway where a road trip via motorcycles takes athletes Kalen Thorien and Mike "Bird" Shaffer from Montana to Wyoming. And still to come, snowboarders Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill will head to New Zealand to descend Mount Cook.

For 68 years, ski families have cheered the official kickoff of winter with the ski film company that started it all. This year is no different. The family grows, and the traditions grow richer, in Warren Miller's Line of Descent, present by Volkswagen. Bigger, deeper, fresher than ever. Warren Miller's Line of Descent will premiere in October 2017 with U.S., film tour shows to follow in Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, China, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and more.
