The Warren Miller Entertainment family – and the snowsports world at large – lost one of its original patriarchs – Warren Miller on January 25, at the age of 94. His humor and adventure-seeking spirit forged the legacy of a genre and a passion for freedom. Warren Miller Entertainment will continue to celebrate the life of Warren Miller each fall. His legacy will live on.
