Children of Winter Movie – Warren Miller

Last night, the family went to Warren Miller’s annual ski movie, “Children of Winter”.  I can’t believe this “epic” show has been going on for 59 years.  As usual, there were many classic deep powder shots in some pretty gnarly locations in the Wasatch mountain range of Utah.  It fired up the entire audience (yelling and cheering) to get psyched and prepared for another record snow year.  They reported that Alta Resort measured 700 inches of snowfall the 2007-08 season.

We are expected to have another storm next weekend so am not sure how long the leaves will last.
