FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Great Barrington, Mass.—The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center will screen Warren Miller Entertainment’s ski and snowboard video Daymaker on Saturday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. The event will mark the return of the Mahaiwe’s yearly tradition of showing the production company’s annual installment over President’s Day weekend.
Warren Miller films are annual celebrations that cross generations and connect us to the comforting constant of snow. Daymaker is the 73rd feature film in the Warren Miller library.
The Warren Miller production team enlisted big names for the film and planned even bigger adventures. Daymaker features Crazy Karl Fostvedt and a local crew of freeskiers in Sun Valley, and Katie Burrell on a Canadian road trip, as she attempts to go pro alongside Freeride World Tour competitors Hedvig Wessel, Lexi duPont, and more.
From there, Warren Miller returns to Snowmass for the biggest party of the winter with the National Brotherhood of Skiers, where you’ll meet the emerging talent that the NBS supports to further its goal of placing Black skiers and snowboarders on the U.S. Team.
The film captures a trip to Greece’s Olympus Range with Michelle Parker and McKenna Peterson, plus the powder days we all dream of with a killer storm cycle in British Columbia’s Monashees. Follow two trips to Alaska, featuring Daron Rahlves, Ryland Bell, Cam Fitzpatrick. And watch as Pete McAfee and Dominic Davila rewrite the rules of adaptive backcountry riding.
Daymaker serves up the winter stoke from Snowbasin to Switzerland, where Connery Lundin tackles the ultimate grass skiing run. Warren Miller’s 73rd film will bring you along for the biggest days so you can get ready for your own.
Tickets are $15, or $10 for season passholders at Ski Butternut. For tickets see mahaiwe.org or call or visit the Box Office, 413-528-0100, open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.
