Warren Miller Ski Movie Showcases Utah

This is year 57 for the Warren Miller ski productions, and this time the Utah Office of Tourism is a film sponsor. From October through December, the movie will have 400-plus screenings in more than 180 cities in 35 states.

Entitled OFF THE GRID, the latest production includes an 8-minute Utah ski segment featuring renowned, locally-based athletes Jeremy Nobis, Jamey Parks, Jamie Pierre, Julian Carr and Jenn Berg. A Utah commercial will air before each screening to provide additional exposure for the state’s ski industry.

This is from a news release about the film:

Warren Miller Entertainment is the most recognized and respected name in the action sports film industry. It is only fitting for Utah, the home of The Greatest Snow on Earth®, to team up with them,” added Nathan Rafferty, Ski Utah’s president. “We’re pleased that the State recognizes the Warren Miller films as a viable outlet to promote Utah skiing. Utah’s sponsorship of this tour coupled with the epic snow footage in our segment provides unmatched exposure for our superior ski product to hundreds of thousands of skiers nation-wide.”
