Warren Miller changed countless lives with his undeniable passion for showing people that there is another way to live their life.
Warren Miller, who rose up from a Depression-era childhood to become the world’s foremost ski filmmaker and a beloved spokesperson for the sport, passed away January 24, 2018, at his home on Orcas Island, WA. He was 93 years old.
Warren’s talents cut a wide swath beyond ski filmmaking. He produced more than 500 films in all, primarily covering outdoor pursuits, including surfing, sailing, and other water sports. As an artist, cartoonist and author, he wrote some 1,200 columns and 11 books.
Kurt Miller commented on his father’s life, “He lived an amazing life. From surfing on the beaches in Southern CA, sailboat racing in San Diego, Long Beach, San Francisco to Sydney Australia. Sharing with millions footage of skiers and riders sliding down the side of mountains from every mountaintop imaginable around the world. I thought you would enjoy the following short film created in his honor.”
