I have a hunch I’m not the
only person in the world who after they saw the movie Rocky was so pumped that she attempted to jog home from the movie
theater. In fact I know I’m not the only one because my friend Amy was with me
and I think it was her mom we called to come get us. Some movies just
have that affect.
Warren Miller’s Dynasty is touring through Colorado
right now. I’d been hearing the industry buzz about it for months, I’d seen the
trailer online, and Ski Country even helped with some of the logistics for the
saw Dynasty at a convention last
month. Walking out of the theater I had the “Rocky affect” happening only it
was the “Warren affect” where I was so pumped, the next opportunity I had to go
to the mountains I did – with two resorts already open at the time it wasn’t as
hard as trying to run home from the movie theater.
you don’t know who or what Warren Miller is, let me fill you in on a few
Warren Miller is a person. He started making ski movies 60 years ago. His voice
is very recognizable because he narrated all the ski movies he made. Today
Warren Miller is also a company. (The man is still around but not directly
involved in the company.) This year’s film commemorates 60 years of film making
by tying in some of the original components of the Warren Miller films in a
very clever way.
film is always made up of parts. With each film, people always talk about the
parts of the film and which part is their favorite. Parts are usually
identified by the location where they were filmed or by the athletes that were
in it. Colorado resorts and athletes have a couple parts in Dynasty.
fan bennies are always pretty sweet. By bennies I’m talking about the giveaways
that fans can get at the shows or online during the show tour. For example,
this year, ticket holders can get free lift tickets to Winter Park, Steamboat
or Copper. Also, as part of this year’s 60th celebration, fans can try their
hand at the Warren Miller 60 Day Giveaway.
Anthony is in the film, it’s his 20th one and at this point he’s pretty much
synonymous with Warren Miller. He also emcees the Colorado stops on the film
tour and is half the reason seeing the film is so fun.
now seen Dynasty twice and plan on seeing
it at least one more time. Because of the Warren affect, I’ll likely be the one
in ski boots at the show or the one trying to jog part of the way home in them.
