Year after year, ski and snowboard enthusiasts of all ages look forward to the coming of winter. This fall, the High Fives Foundation confirms that the joys of winter are eternal, with the showing of Warren Miller Entertainment’s 70th full-length feature film, Timeless, presented by Volkswagen and the world premiere of High Fives Foundation’s 10th installment of their documentary series B.A.S.I.C.S (Be Aware Safe In Critical Situations). The documentary film, Ten Years of Safety, will premiere Friday, November 1st, 2019 at The Reno Ballroom preceding the Warren Miller film, Timeless.
Much of the world has changed since Warren Miller started making ski films in 1949, but the passion of snowriders across the globe has stayed the same. Timeless emulates the enduring spirit of winter and gives a deserving nod to the past seven decades of ski cinematography, while looking toward the future. Get ready to kick off your winter with a cast of fresh faces, inspirational locales, plenty of laughs, camaraderie, and a classic blend of the new and old.
It’s incredible, looking at the fact that this is number 70. Every year I still get that same feeling I got when I was a kid watching ski movies. I enjoy watching them now more than ever, and that is what Timeless celebrates.
Says narrator Jonny Moseley
