Warren Miller's "No Turning Back" Screening

Warren Miller's 2014 film, No Turning Back, pays homage to the 65 years of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has lead WME to every end of the winter world. Since he began creating films in 1949, Warren Miller has known that as skiers and riders, there’s no need to look back, we have to continuously drive to keep our edge and chase the snow. Not much has changed when it comes to why it is these athletes tilt and turn down mountains and pray for storms. Sheer delight. Welcome this winter season and remember there’s No Turning Back. Catch the screening of No Turning Back on Friday, October 24th at 7:30pm at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall. More information and tickets here.
