I remember watching one where they had, like stated before, a 15 minute park segment, and warren miller was narrating and was like, "we stopped by the terrain park for a bit, and not a single pair of suspenders was seen in sight."
I saw one back in 2009 I think, and I enjoyed it. I guess it was a bit different; they went to China and he filmed some of the Chinese guys skiing on tree branches carved as skies, and they had a big stick to slow down. They were nuts! Just straight down and hitting jumps. The rest wasn't anything too special.
They're pretty boring. They aren't straight ski porn like level 1 and Steve stept's movies. I saw ticket to ride last weekend, here's a quick summary: skiing on glaciers in exotic places, about 2 minutes of decent snowboarding, a "park" segment (most of the riders landings are cut from the shot), and a bunch of half baked hippies talking about how the mountain is their life and how they connect with it. Although, it was nice seeing Bibby and some other dude in a backcountry seg.
Sparknotes: it's Warren Miller. Ski movies for families. Don't expect anything totally banger
Just saw the new movie "Ticket To Ride" I honestly had no complaints..some parts were absolutely stunning the Greenland segment was wonderful! There was some funny shots too! $10 was no a bad price to go see it...95% of the movie is big mountain skiing so if you want to see a park centered movie Warren Miller is not the movies to see..also fuck WME, Warren Miller made some good stuff, but WME fucked it all up...I would recommend the older movies..

The legend of Warren Miller hasn't actually been involved in any of the movies since 2004, and let his son takeover the company in 1988 who later sold it. I grew up watching his movies from 20 years back and they were epic!
The ticket itself is worth it, at least here in Michigan. You get 3 free lift tickets just for going to the show, and a bunch of swag from vendors that post up outside the show for the preshow and intermission. The movies are the same year in and year out, now...
Talk about a hard challenge right there. ... If you ever tried to ski when you’re wasted, it’s not easy.
I agree with you man, i just got back from seeing it 10 minutes ago. I thought it was pretty interesting. Most of the big mountain skiing was breathtaking, and the "park" segment with the snowboarders had a pretty cool vibe to it. I was surprised how it didnt seem out of place in the middle of the movie, especially because most of the film was big mountain.
