    Year after year, generations of ski and snowboard enthusiasts look forward to the coming of winter, and even after seven decades of ski cinematography, Warren Miller Entertainment can confirm that the joys of winter are eternal. Kickoff winter with Warren Miller Entertainment’s 70th film, Timeless, presented by Volkswagen. Timeless features a cast of fresh faces, including Olympic mogul skier Jaelin Kauf and Canadian World Cup ski racer Erin Mielzynski, along side industry veterans Glen Plake, Rob DesLauries, and Marcus Caston. Explore the enduring spirit of the season across the globe, from the slopes of the Colorado Rockies to the rooftop of the Alps, and the steeps of the Monashee Mountains at Mustang Powder Lodge to Mike Wiegele’s Heliskiing out of Blue River in British Columbia. All moviegoers will receive discounts on lift tickets, gear, swag, and more. Timeless is more than a ski and snowboard film, it’s an experience.

    Carry on (or start) this great fall tradition!  Join fellow snow sports lovers, snow enthusiasts, and adrenaline seekers in the greater DC Metro area for an exclusive screening of this movie that captures breathtaking skiing and panoramic splendor.

    Watch the movie on a ginormous 46’x16’ High Definition screen with state-of-the-art 7.1 digital surround sound (largest High Definition screen in the DC region) in an intimate 250-seat movie theater, from a plush, tilt-back seat with unobstructed view, in stadium-style seating. With goodies for every ticket holder and prize drawings at every screening, it is the perfect excuse to get together with your skiing and riding buddies to get stoked for the season ahead.

    MARGARET SCHWARTZ

    What if you discovered a ski resort with the greatest vertical of any lift-serviced mountain in the Northeast, with mile after mile of impeccably groomed cruising trails, 98% snowmaking coverage, a 5-star ski and snowboard school and diverse, amenity-rich ski towns surrounding it?
