Warren Miller’s “No Turning Back” will be shown at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s A&B Amphitheater on Friday, Jan. 9, at 6:30 p.m. Gates open 5 p.m. The film is free.
Warren Miller’s newest film, “No Turning Back,” pays homage to the six-and-a-half decades of mountain culture and adventure filmmaking that has led WME to every end of the winter world. The film explores a legacy that dates back to before skis had edges and mountains had condos, running all the way to the steepest peaks around the globe, and back to the ‘Mom & Pop’ hills that define skiing and riding.
This year, Warren Miller proves that not much has changed when it comes to why these athletes tilt and turn down mountains and pray for storms: it’s the continuous drive to keep the edge and chase the snow. Sheer delight! Welcome the winter season and remember: there’s No Turning Back.
Athletes include Tyler Ceccanti, Josh Bibby, Seth Wescott, Rob Kingwill, JT Holmes, Ueli Kestenholz, Tim Petrick, Mike Hattrup, Seth Morrison, Heather Paul, Kaylin Richardson, Øystein Aasheim, Sierra Quitiquit, Julian Carr, Ingrid Backstrom, Jess McMillan, Chris Anthony, Ted Ligety, Julia Mancuso, and Mikaela Shiffrin.
