Warren Miller: Off the Grid

Yep. That's Utah. Our deep, clean, dry powder and stunning mountains are sponsoring this year’s Warren Miller.

Here’s Ray Grass in today’s Deseret Morning News:
"We came into the game late in the season," recalled Rafferty. "It turned out we had to shoot our ski segments in March and April. Only in Utah. Other resorts are starting to close, but we got some of the most incredible powder skiing shots imaginable. They were great, as those who attend the movie will see. Like I said, only in Utah."

Miller is without question the czar of the ski-movie industry, and his movies have become the pre-season catalyst to winter skiing American viewers have come to expect over the years.

Involvement in the Miller production was made possible through the increased travel/tourism budget pushed and approved by Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. and overseen by Leigh von der Esch, managing director of the Utah Office of Tourism.

The sponsorship was made possible, said von der Esch, because of "an increase in our advertising budget due to the generous support of the Utah Legislature, (which) has allowed us to partner with Warren Miller for the first time."
