Movie Info

Ski Bum: The Warren Miller Story chronicles the life and times of the legendary filmmaker who, through his annual ski films and national tours which began in the early 1950's, was a driving force in the development and promotion of the ski industry in America and throughout the world. Miller, who died in 2018 at the age of 93 while the documentary was still in production, sat with the filmmakers months before his passing in what would prove to be his final interview. In that interview, which took place over three days at his home on Orcas Island, WA, Miller reminisced about living off rabbit stew and sleeping in a teardrop trailer in his endless pursuit of the perfect ski run. Miller also explained in great detail the challenges - both professional and personal - he faced over the course of his trailblazing 60+ years as a filmmaker and film distributor.

A stirring tribute to one of the pioneers of extreme sports filmmaking.

January 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Ski Bum, which includes plenty of appreciative testimony from world-class skiers, can hardly help but continue to sell the dream of vicarious living from slope to slope.

It's an insightful look into his life that's compelling for anyone who's interested in learning more about someone who took a lifelong passion, changed an entire industry, and inspired countless numbers of people.

Perhaps too reverent and primarily of interest to a specific niche audience, this memorial of the man, his films, freedom, and excitement, should give Miller fans the warm and fuzzies and make them want to head to the mountains and the next great voyage.

The result is a smart tribute that isn't just for ski nuts, but for anyone looking to be inspired to grab a camera.
